Business Innovation Mindset - The Business Unusual

In bringing Business and Customer Centricity to life, it is critical that we are equipped with the skills, more importantly – the mindset, to engage our business lines through a common language. We need to step up in the value that we are providing such that beyond responding to the operational requirements from the lines, we are able to facilitate the exploration of new technology-enabled business opportunities. Doing that requires a new set of tools and mindset.

Any business can be described by articulating the 9 building blocks of the Business Model Canvas. In exploring the Customer Segments building block:

  1. questions about the jobs-to-be-done, pains and gains faced by the selected segments are discussed to truly understanding customer needs

  2. product and service features are then described when we get to the Value Proposition building block

  3. matching the organization’s product and service characteristics to the customer jobs-to-be-done, pains and gains will illuminate whether the customer needs have indeed been met thereby starting to identify innovation opportunities.
