R&P Academy

Executive Workshops & Consulting Projects

Whilst the term Business Model is being used by management professionals for a long time, it is often the most loosely used term. When managers use the term business model, they are either referring to the revenue model or the operating model. But, the business model is much more than that. R&P academy helps professionals devise growth strategies by focusing on Business Model Innovation. We engage with our clients in two ways: (1) Executive Workshops (2) Consulting Projects

Executive Workshops

We offer executive workshops to create a shared understanding of business models. The business model understanding is a first step to create effective business strategies. The workshops also offer practical tools which can help in creating and reshaping innovation processes. These workshops can be incorporated into executive training programs on strategy and innovation. The workshops are tailored to the client objectives and their duration can range from half-day to two-days. The workshops can be conducted during annual business planning cycle or in the business strategy offsite.

R&P Academy will help you bring fresh, outside perspective. We help facilitate strategic conversations through a set of practical frameworks and techniques. Our workshops will help your business managers with the following:

  • Quickly gain the big picture of the business. Understand how different pieces fit together.
  • Develop the business models vocabulary. Learn to speak the language of business models.
  • Develop a shared understanding. Conduct high-quality discussions and meetings among inter-disciplinary teams.
  • Think beyond product/service innovation. Consider innovation in different facets of the business.
  • Bring structure to the innovation thought process.

Consulting Projects

We undertake consulting projects, which follow a five-phase business model design process.

  1. Setting the stage – Create awareness of the need for a new business model, describe the motivation behind the project, and establish a common language to describe, design, analyze, and discuss business models.
  2. Immersion – Research and analyze elements needed for the business model design effort. Immerse in relevant knowledge about customers, technology, and environment. Collect information, interview experts, study potential customers and identify needs and problems.
  3. Design – Transform the information and ideas from the previous phase into business model prototypes that can be explored and tested. After an intensive business model inquiry, select the most satisfactory business model design.
  4. Implement – Implement the selected business model design.
  5. Manage – Set up the management structures to continuously monitor, evaluate, and adapt or transform the business model
