10 Strategic Elements for a Culture of Convenience
There are certain aspects of a business that can be adapted and applied as part of an overall strategy to build a culture of convenience within an organization. These 10 Strategic Elements can help you improve your business and build your own culture of convenience:
Business Model Strategy: This is where your products and services and the value proposition you have to offer comes into play, as well as your distribution channels. What are your target markets and are you reaching them effectively?
Technology/IT: This includes not only your actual IT systems, networks, and equipment, but also the strategy and business requirements behind all those systems, as well as any API and website integrations you work with. Additionally, consider: how are you managing security and risk?
Reporting & Financials: This is all the numbers – your financial statements and performance and analytics reports as well as how you understand and analyze your financials. What are your Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)?
R&D and Feedback Loop: Research and Development is key to gaining information about how you can improve your business. This includes instituting a feedback loop to gain information from your customers and really listening to them. Consider: what types of interviews, surveys, and tools could you be using to capture the voice of the customer?
