…unately, these are just a couple of the building blocks to achieve the overall intent of the model. Those items further down the list cannot be easily reproduced and take constant, conscious effort over a longer period of time by an organisation to wanting to embrace them. There is no easy blueprint for implementing them and, naturally, that’s where we can realise most of the value of the model.
Great point! I’ve also observed this being the case for adopting other operating models in the past. What I find interesting is that the effort required to realise the most value of a model is underestimated and often goes unrecognised. Given that we, as human beings, crave instant gratification and often make instinctive, fast and emotional decisions, how might we make it easier to implement those items further down the list that require a more conscious effort over the long term?
