Your Operating Model: Build a Future-Proof Foundation for Business Success

The increase in business competition these days is undeniable. Disruption is affecting entire sectors of business with the onslaught of new technologies and operating models. With new challengers constantly entering the fray, businesses must not only stay on their toes but also be prepared to adapt and innovate at a moment’s notice. The market is no longer a gentle stream, but rather a turbulent sea, where only those with a sharp strategy, a clear vision, and a relentless drive to succeed can hope to weather the storm and emerge victorious.

Businesses that operate with a well-defined and optimized operating model have a better chance of succeeding in a fiercely competitive environment, for example by futureproofing through use of technology and automation. Overall, a good operating model provides a clear framework for how the organization should function in order to achieve its goals.

An operating model defines the processes, systems, controls and resources that are necessary for the organization to create, deliver, and capture value. It also outlines the roles and responsibilities of different functions and individuals within the organization.


  1. Our business cannot respond quickly to changes in the market or changing customer preferences.
  2. Our operating model does not prioritise the needs of our customers.
  3. We understand concepts of use of technology and automation to improve our operating model, but we don’t know where to start.
  4. Our lack of capability to innovate is affecting our ambition to stay competitive.
  5. Our operating model is no longer suited to achieve our strategic goals.
  6. We lack the technological capability to update our operating model.

Operating models have underlying enablers that are perhaps not immediately obvious. Technology and the ability to automate, measure and track are critical, whilst strong governance should drive compliance, risk management and ensure ethical behaviour.

By focusing on the key elements of their operating model and continuously refining and improving their processes, businesses can achieve their strategic objectives, increase profitability, and build a sustainable and future-proof foundation for growth and success.
