grand designs: operating model SOS!

Like DIY projects, all Operating Model redesigns start with a beautiful vision, the best of intentions and an ambitious budget! But like those enthusiastic homeowners, it can also be easy to end up wishing you never started.

Without a robust guiding framework, a clear view of the breadth / depth of scope and the right people in the right workshops you could end up over time, over budget and with an organisational configuration that isn’t fit for purpose.
