Why business change development is so important?
If you do not have business change development (like Lean Business Change) your changes use more resources, require more time, lose opportunities and take unnecessary risks. The more you make business changes the more important it is to have a specific development for that.
Is new business creation also a business change?
Yes, it is in the context of existing companies because new business is more or less influenced by current businesses both in good and bad. Startups, innovation and venture activities with full freedom are a different thing.
Our leaders are responsible for business changes. Why should it be a matter for others?
Leaders are responsible for business changes, and they lead and control it. Most often leaders do not have time and seldom they are experienced to do specific business change development work and besides that business changes should be a matter for everyone in a company.
Cannot our product/service development take care also of business change development?
Business change development – like Lean Business Change – has requirements that go well beyond product/service perspective. Typically, people from product/service development can make an important contribution to business change development
Can´t we make organizational changes to create business changes?
Yes, you can but it is a slow process. Lean Business Change approach makes a business change more effective and faster. An organization should be built on what a business requires and not vice versa.
We craft new strategies to make business changes, is that wrong?
No, but a new strategy is still far from a business change. Typical strategy implementation is not very effective in creating a business change and it can even start to slow it down. By applying Lean Business Change you can make more effective changes.
