End-to-End approach instead of silo or channel thinking. We are playing in silos which is still working for now… but how long will this last?
We have an orchestra with great musicians. We have different channels / areas like strings and wind musicians. What we need are more maestros with a holistic understanding, a detailed acting and a vision to bring things together in an innovative way.
Do you see the X within transformation? Often we talk about digital transformation… which is not about digital, it’s about transformation. This transformation means not just using digital tools & channels, it means changing the entire business… and this in direction to the customer and his experiences with our products / services.
Very often I see people talking about all the buzzwords and then they start doing something “new”. In real they don’t dare to change something fundamental.
Transformation is difficult for ourself and to do in established environments. Have you ever tried to transform yourself? Have you ever tried to transform business processes, structures, thinking, etc.?
….about Scrum, Kanban or other. This are very good methods which helps to do the transformation. So they are the means for the purpose.
Placing something new about old thinking, processes, structures,.. is no real change. Today I got a very good wording for it. “This is not transformation, this is just translation” (Thanks Steve for this great definition).
Everyone is telling you what you have to do and what he is doing is a must and essential. Thousand of buzzwords are flying around, and you need to have the ultimate strategy, because this is part of every talk, every networking event and conference.
2019 is now there…. Have you made your planes already? What is your resume for 2018 and what are you going to change?
Culture eats process & strategy for lunch, but without processes & strategy there will be no culture. – There is no either or. We are process and result driven, but that’s not all and shouldn’t be the only focus if we want to change things and grow these days. Just focus on process & strategy is a dead end. The culture should be within the boat.
