A lot of our clients, and especially industrial clients, have digital anxiety. They see that the new technology and new market will challenge their old way of working. Business Design helps them to have a grounded approach to new technology and new business models. It is a way of building innovation on current core competence.
So, what is Business Design?
Traditional strategy work has turned out to be inadequate for a world that is changing more rapidly. It tends to be too static and missing important elements both when it comes to structural changes as well as fundamental understanding.
Business Design has some of the fundamentals borrowed from business strategy, but in order to apply it to the challenges of today, it is inspired by design thinking as methodology and of user-centricity as a mind-set.
When technology allows us to build almost anything, we need to find our competitive advantage in other aspects. Aspects like new business models, organizational changes and customer experience will be as crucial as technology for successful and impactful offerings.
Business Design target decision-makers and strategy owners to help them to navigate in this new world. It is not necessarily digital strategies, but strategies for a digitalized world.
