Build resilience and flexibility into your business model

Delivered by Lancaster University Management School, this programme starting on the 18th November is designed to help directors or owner-managers of Lancashire SMEs, who employ more than three members of staff.

What’s Involved

The programme consists of three half-day workshops over a six-week period (one session per fortnight).

It breaks business modelling down into three components: Creating, Delivering and Capturing Value. You will visit each of these components in turn and use a blend of theories, models and practical activities to support you to build resilience and flexibility into your business model.

Once the fundamentals of innovation have been established, you will visit each of these components in turn and use a blend of theories, models and practical activities to support you to explore how you can innovate to build flexibility and resilience into your business model.

All of this takes place in a safe and trusted peer learning environment to provide stimulus and challenge from like-minded business leaders.

Benefits to the Business

  • Enable you to articulate and understand value from your customer’s perspective, meeting functional, social and emotional needs
  • Look at new, innovative ways in which you could deliver your value proposition to your customers
  • Explore a variety of revenue models and income streams to increase resilience

“We know that time is precious for the businesses trying to get back on their feet after a turbulent few months so we have designed the programme to be as accessible and effective as possible. Now more than ever, SMEs need to stay alert to potential risks. While Covid-19 is around, and while issues like Brexit, climate change and seismic technological shifts affect us all, developing a culture of innovation around business models is invaluable for a prosperous, stable future.” Matt Hutchinson, Project Manager.
