Business modelling can be performed for several purposes. One purpose may be that the business is going to change – usually called business development.
A natural aim is to improve existing operations by identifying, analysing, and possibly change the way you do things, who does it and where to do it. This process is called business analysis.
Once you know what you want to accomplish, our experienced consultants have the tools and methods that allow you to reach all the way to success. One condition is that those affected by the changes get involved in the work through workshops and other efforts. Involvement from key representatives from your business is crucial to success.
In cases where your aim is organic change in your business we use what we call business development. We will help to define and illustrate your business goals. This facilitates the identification of processes, policies, concepts and resources necessary to meet these goals. Then, we can provide services to help your business to implement change. Examples of such services are program- and project management, business analysis, procurement, outsourcing, change management, communication and coaching.
Business analysis is used if the aim of the project is that an existing business will be improved and thus likely to change. We start by describing the current situation and then create a scenario for the future. It is important to agree on the starting position in order to measure the effect of the change. The mapping also makes the anchor stronger, for both those involved in the work through interviews, workshops, etc., and for those who can receive information about the current situation and the degree to which future action is needed.
In a business analysis, we describe one or more perspective with the right level of detail to achieve the goals.
The following approach is common:
What we do
Analysis – we analyse one or more questions, collects information about it and deliver a report as a result.
Feasibility study – used when you decided to launch a project, but first want to define the scope, opportunities and risks. During the feasibility study, we perform a benefit assessment or impact assessment and suggests someone who will be responsible for the results. It increases the likelihood that the project closes as scheduled.
