I completely re-evaluated the role of innovation in business growth: before reading this book I have to admit I thought it only entailed product new features and technologies enhancements, while now I see it has everything to do with meeting customer needs and uncovering a business USP, which automatically translates in sales! Could not recommend it more!

Unlike most business innovation books I read over the last years (and even decades) when reading How to create innovation you immediately understand the authors have been there, innovating and transforming some of the world's most amazing brands. Great work!

Not only this book offers the most comprehensive innovation and business change overview but it really helps you take the next step, driving you step by step from theory to practice (also with super useful background notes and driving questions)

I really enjoyed the whole book, but mostly the culture chapter, mainly because I always failed to acknowledge its major role in favouring or inhibiting business growth. Loved the graphics that helped connect all the dots in a visually appealing (and way easier) way.

We’been willing to innovate our business for some years now, but then we always got stuck before we even started, because basically we had no idea where to start…This book helped us do just that: find the right starting point with guiding questions and an incredibly comprehensive innovation overview.

Why we use it

In Stage 4 of the UNITE innovation approach, you turn your business concept into an actual business.

This is a difficult move. Many organizations fail to bridge the strategy-execution gap, meaning they fail to implement the business concept they created. We designed the UNITE Operating Model Canvas to guide you in your execution decisions and setup.

How It Works

The Operating Model Canvas expands upon the Value Chain, Key Resources, and Key Partners section of your Business Model Canvas.

The core of the Operating Model Canvas is the Value Delivery Chain(s), which describes how you deliver your Value Proposition to your target customer. This enables you to see how your core processes deliver value.
All other areas are Supporting Processes. These are necessary but focus on internal customers and processes as opposed to external ones. The supporting processes depicted at the top of the canvas cover the firm infrastructure, organization, partners, and locations, while the supporting areas at the bottom of the canvas focus on HR, management systems, finance, legal, and IT.

The Operating Model Canvas forces your team to focus on just the key elements necessary for executing your strategy, thus cutting through the clutter and ensuring your team’s alignment with your strategy and with each other.

What is the goal of the model?

Bridging the strategy-execution gap. 70% of companies struggle with implementing their strategy because everyone is pulling in different directions. Use the Operating Model Canvas to make sure your team understands how the key aspects of your business fit together.
