ProductOEM: PRODUCT OPERATING & ENGAGEMENT MODELS

Making Strategy and Execution a single word.

Stratecution (verb) stra-te-CUU-shun

Definition: The act of implementing ProductOEM. A framework designed for leaders across all industries seeking to create cohesion between their strategy and execution in a way that achieves adapability at a lower cost without introducing complexity.

Common usage: Our team decided to stratecute our delivery approach which meant we never lost customer focus as we scaled up.

Synonyms: simplification at scale, achieving purpose, organisational agility.

Product

Drawing on years of large-scale technical product delivery experience, these proven methods can successfully apply to non-technical product and service delivery too.

Operating

The Operating Model includes the essential building blocks every organisation must consider for its delivery structure, often overlooked in other training courses.

Engagement

Clearly structured and supported engagement practises and communcation channels bring clarity, innovation, trust and quality.

Models

Your context and goals are specific, but the tools, templates and framework principles work for all.

Breaking down challenges that at times felt very hard to solve for our team, and creating spaces and conversations to find viable solutions and experiment different, complementary approaches is how this approach helped us

Is ProductOEM Right for You?

ProductOEM is a comprehensive framework that helps leaders see their organisation holistically, recognise the interconnections, and provides practical direction on how to affect change. As a result it can be used in a number of scenarios.

The company functions brilliantly when it's smaller, but now it's in a period of growth and needs to find ways to scale that means it doesn't fall into a trap of creating more silos, causing teams to feel disconnected and adding complexity to delivery.

Perhaps your company has been growing organically over time, with changes in strategic direction. What you now have are cumbersome processes that don't seem to serve anyones interests. You need simpler ways to get things done. 

Perhaps the structure of your product and/or services no longer make sense, you need to revise and reset your goals and shape the organisation accordingly. 

We see this time and again, where there is a notable hand-off between the two worlds of Business and Technology. Sometimes bridging the gap isn't enough, they need to be part of the same system. Not only do they need an environment in which to collaborate but also one where they can co-create.

You are a leader with great ideas for new products, services, customer channels, or even just a fresh way of doing things. You need to get your organisational ducks in a row, in a practical efficient manner, so nothing is compromised. 

I have amazing talent in my company. I have sent them on agile, project management and product training, but I want to support them in their growth as they become leaders themselves and need to think more systemically and organisationally. I need a course that combines all the best thinking from the disciplines of agility, behavioural science, coaching and product thinking, and teaches it in a way that they can practically appy it.

 

Starting-up, especially in regulated enviornments which provide a structure, can give the impression that all bases are covered, but then the teething problems arise, usually symptoms of the issue that we haven't put enough thought into how we will operate and communicate.

Many agile transformations are frustrated because of a misalignment to other parts of the organisation, which limits it's impact. The agile ways of working need to be housed in an operating model that helps them to flourish.
