Instructor: J. Michael Marks
Level of Complexity: Intermediate
1:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Many distributors have decided it is time to get ahead of all the increasing industry disruptions. Those that have already started their change process often get stuck in pilot purgatory. This workshop will cover the diagnostics a distributor can use to get the change sequence right, so each investment produces returns to fund the next steps. It will explore the science and discipline of making a business model transition providing an overview of the six interconnected disciplines: capital structure, value propositions, go-to-market models, organizational structure (roles and incentives), technology and tactics, and management cadence rhythms. Once you understand the diagnostic tools, Change Management is next. Each diagnostic area will include a list of research links for participants to acquire additional insights.
