VALUE CATALYSIS – TRANSFORM OUTPUT TO OUTCOME

With our Value Catalysis workshops, we invite our customers to step out of their daily routine, think in new ways and re-new their understanding of themselves, their team and organisations and why they are part of all of it. As preparation, information about Output and Outcome of a specified organisational unit is gathered.

What’s the difference?

Output: What are the main tasks you perform? What are the key deliverables you produce? Which products or services do you offer?

Outcome: What would your stakeholders miss, if your unit stopped to exist? What is the bigger picture for the company and how do you deliver value in that? Usually the Outcome is assigned to turnover, profit and compliance. Optional categories like sustainability, culture and company purpose might be added and the wording gets customised to your specific setup.

During the workshops itself the cause & effects from Output to Outcome will be recorded visually. For the entire process, we currently use a tool named FlyingLogic™.

First results and customer feedback demonstrate that the visual simplification is a powerful way to reveal gaps and the focus area within the value chain. A welcomed side-effect is that by developing a shared understanding of the cause & effects individuals become more conscious about the meaning of their job and it makes their jobs tangibly more meaningful.

We believe that this kind of engagement pushes the team-performance in the mid-term perspective.

To get familiar with Value Catalysis, we recommend to start straightforward with 4-5 employees attending a max. 2h lasting workshop. While Value Catalysis can be applied universally, the individual follow-ups could look very diverse.
