Learn the essential elements behind a successful Target Operating Model (TOM)

An organisation's Target Operating Model (TOM) defines their desired operating state by understanding the current ‘as is’ model and the ‘to be’ model. In this workshop, we will explore the essential elements of a TOM and how it can become the blueprint of an organisation's vision by aligning operating capacities and strategic objectives.

Join Caroline Mills and Tracey Penington as they step you through case studies, proven methodologies and practical tips gained from their combined 40+ years of experience at the forefront of the change and transformation industry. Learn how to accurately define your organisation's current state and desired future state.
