Transformation often doesn't start with action, but with plans, strategies and meetings. To make sure everybody is on the same page, it is important to use a vocabulary all participants are familiar with. In this little summary, we introduce you to our definitions of the five most important words of your digital transformation journey. If you have any questions, we're happy to hear from you.
Strategy is your way into future. Your next step. Building strategy means responding to a changing environment. Strong strategy considers external influencing factors not just a thread but an opportunity. In the digital era, not only consumer trends or traditional competitors challenge you, but foremost new digital services, disruptive business models and platforms.
The strategy part is adopting changes as quick as possible and adjust the business model. Building digital business capabilities within your existing business becomes a key feature of your organization. Strategy and business model can’t be separated from each other.
In a holistic approach, we work with clients to consider changing external drivers such as customers and suppliers, the macro-economical influencing factors and disruptive services & business models. But we also start extending a clients’ business model by building new capabilities based on interaction/transaction (process), data and technology and measured by metrics. By creating a Business Transformation Roadmap and implementing Transformation Scorecards or OKR’s, we develop a handy tool for starting your digital journey.
‚Form follows function‘. A well designed business is creating value for a specific group of customers, and it consists of a set of capabilities (functions). Digitalization has the power to change every function of a business, and it fundamentally impacts the value creation engine.
Following the change of business design, also the internal structures must be re-designed in order to support a changed value creation. We help leaders to consciously create new structures for the people to work in and offer new way to innovate, organizing work and creating results.
In return, breaking silos, strengthen networks and informal structures, building labs for new work design - everything has impact on the organizational culture as well. A simple culture hack is changing the structure of a meeting or even of a company.
With a background in traditional business design, we also explore the possibilities of alternative structures - for small teams up to the whole organization. We offer temporary labs, facilitation, new thinking and new methods to experiment with new structures in a safe space.
There’re thousands of books on leadership. Numerous theories, methodologies and styles. Which are the best to lead into a digital future?
We believe that one of the biggest challenges in any digital transformation is complexity and not-knowing. How can you lead successfully if your knowledge and experience is not longer helpful? How can you integrate various perspective and create decisions?
New Leadership is not just a new style, but an attitude - some say a mind-set. It accepts the uncertainty and complexity and is able to create a powerful vision. It integrates teams and individuals, releases their creativity, autonomy and self-organizing power. The new leaders is rather a mentor than a captain. He/she leads rather transformational than transactional.
We combine various new leadership approaches (digital, agile, systemic, dialogic) and build programs for leaders to develop their role forward. Not replacing it, but extending it.
Corporate culture is the unwritten how-to-guide of behaving and working together. Though most of the thing called culture is unconscious, it gives guidance, separates the ‚right‘ from the ‚wrong‘ and creates identity. But its unconsciousness is a problem for organizations in a transformation.
Most leaders understand that the digital era requires a new mind-set or a new culture. But how can culture be changed - is it sufficient to post well sounding statements on every wall? It’s not, because - again - on most parts of culture, values, beliefs and underlying assumptions people are not aware of. The first step to change culture at all is to create awareness.
We offer new perspectives, observe phenomenons, unhide the invisible. Culture will change just by the act of observing and accepting. triangility combines agile and dialogic methodologies with the Gestalt-psychology to make things visible. We offer workshops with small or large teams, small interventions and culture hacks, we support you building culture labs.
Can companies, their leaders and managers do a digital transformation without understanding technology? They don’t need to become experts in Software or AI, but knowing the capabilities of technology will help to strategically utilize its power.
Internet of Things, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, 3D printing - everything has the power to radically change business models and/or add new capabilities. We have a legacy in technology and are deeply embedded in the IT world. We ‚translate‘ technology into business and vice versa. We make IT relevant to the business, building the bridge into the business and integrate technology into your transformation journey.
