Structure of the Masterclass in Strategy Development
Phase 1: The Business Model Canvas (BMC) This Masterclass is an applied and practice-based mix of strategy sessions and deep dives into technology trends (TedQs) The business model is the red thread through your digital strategy. You work with your team to elaborate your business model in 4 sessions. The Business Model Canvas (BMC) is the key instrument for achieving this. The BMC provides insight into the various clients, the services that you will provide and the delivery method. Each session offers a balanced mix of learning and doing, offering a combination of theory, exercises, practical cases and experiments.
Phase 2: TedQs Following on from this, you will then select TedQs that are relevant for you. After just a single session, you will be up-to-date on a specific theme. TedQs are about new technology, relevant trends, developments in the markets and new working practices. Examples of this are: Organizing Digital Transformation, Value of Data, Blockchain, IT Leadership, Security & Privacy, Service Integration & Management and Cloud Computing. However, we also challenge you to contribute your own topics to the agenda.
Phase 3: Establishing the strategy The TedQs serve as input for the enrichment of your strategy. You decide which experiments you want to try, or you can actively choose to do nothing. The result: ongoing adjustment of your strategy and creation of maximum added value for your organization.
