We believe that reshaping your operating model around consumption services will provide the means to boost your organisation’s agility, refocus your spend, and radically improve your access to capability. But to fully reap the benefits of a world where almost anything can be bought ‘as a Service’ you need to change your operating model. The short video below illustrates this mindset and behaviour shift in an analogy that all car owners will relate to. Take a look.
The Four Planks that Underpin the Transition
There are four major planks that underpin the successful planning and execution of a shift to as-a-Service:
A Process for Managing the Shift
For most companies, moving strategically to as-a-Service (as opposed to replacing products one at a time as needed) is uncharted territory. While there is a playbook in the form of the services catalogues, the actual transition is a journey that does not come with a detailed map.
Voco has developed a methodology built around the four planks. It iterates each in differing levels of detail relevant to the decisions being made. The methodology provides a process for managing the shift through the Discovery, Readiness, Procurement and Transition phases and on to benefit realisation and measurement.
