The ability to deliver cutting-edge services to market is largely determined by your operating model. When your services evolve, corresponding changes need to be reflected in your operating model. Trouble is – many of us wouldn’t know what our business operating model is – let alone what it needs to be.
FromHereOn has received a gold award for our co-working space in Sydney. “The space was excellent. Collaboration and inspiration came easily, so it’s a very good environment to encourage new thinking with a diverse team”. If you are in the area, drop by and say hi.

Maire Ruane returns to FromHereOn as Delivery Director (APAC) to build better businesses and architect better human experiences
FromHereOn hosted the second RPA for Developers MeetUp at Basecamp in Sydney this week, and we're still amazed at the relative obscurity of something that has such disruptive power. MeetUp attendees are all developers seeking community, but also real solutions to the challenges they face in their day jobs. And while blockchain has some street cred, robotic process automation just doesn’t register. Well not yet.
At the outset of a successful startup your efforts may centre exclusively on your one unique service or product concept. However, it is not uncommon for this to morph over time into several related but distinct products or services – driven by the particular needs of distinct customer segments.
The question then becomes how to design services that are mutually complementary and not competing, and how to do this in a way that naturally ensures continuity of great customer experience? There are certainly many examples where the introduction of a new product or service has led to confusion for new customers or disenfranchisement of existing customers.
The question soon arises though as to how to choose the most appropriate business model to support your disruptive ambition? Conventional wisdom says that it’s a matter of selecting an appropriate business model architype or pattern to match your situation. Business model architypes (e.g., Freemium) are common patterns for business models to suit differing requirements. So simply identify your requirements, select your architype and job done – right?
In a nutshell – Purpose Design is about being clear about who you are and what you stand for – both as an organisation or as an individual. Conventional wisdom says that a company’s executive team should develop a Vision or Mission statement to do this. And conventional wisdom would be responsible for all the over blown, grandiose Vision and Mission statements that nobody believes and nobody embraces.
