5 Questions about Strategy and Business Design

| No TrackBacks

Now is a good time to ask yourself these five business design questions (ht to Oliver Wyman):

1. Who is the customer and what do we offer? Which customer segments should we serve, and what is our value proposition for each segment?

2. What is our profit model for each of our offerings?

3. What do we perform in-house and what do we outsource?

4. How do we build in strategic control? Is there a way to create sustainable differentiation?

5. How should we organize ourselves to make it happen? What is the right organizational architecture to execute the business for each segment?
