How Does the Management Mesh “Work”?
The Management Mesh is unique for every organization. The mesh can be simple or complicated, depending on the size of the organization or the complexity of the products and services. Overtime, the mesh changes due to new ways of working, changes in the environment, the market and so on.
Once the organizational governance and the management principles are understood, the mesh can be built. With the boundaries of the mesh in place, the service provider can develop its strategy to meet the consumer’s demands, needs and expectations. The mesh is then used to organize and activate each of the components that make up the mesh to meet the consumer’s requirements and to develop the tactical and operational plans to produce the expected outcomes of the consumer as well as of the service provider.
