A Business Challenge
Staying ahead of the competition curve is like grabbing onto jello. It’s darn hard. That’s the dilemma of most enterprising organizations today. Until recently, organizations operated in a relatively stable and healthy environment, and this was reflected in their business models. Global competition, economic instability, shareholder demand, consumer buying patterns, shifts in technology application and demography alongside drastic changes and dynamic complexities in the landscape all have company owners, CEOs, and other executives questioning and then reviewing or refreshing their business models. Leaders are also rethinking how best to create or accelerate value, build new businesses, or improve or transform their organizations.
Following on the heels of our most recent workshop geared to accelerating business strategy, this unique and provocative 2.5 hour business model innovation workshop fit for leaders wanting to stay ahead of the competition curve will spark new leader thinking with a disciplined approach to innovate new business models. Using a case study approach, PEO will demonstrate how to shift value creation in an industry fraught with challenge. Leaders will leave with a quick overview of their current business model with insight into how to create new ideas to stimulate the value and customer proposition, service delivery or improved cost structures for their organization.
