Application fields for LSP
LSP is used for teams and groups when it comes to questions without obvious answers. These can be for example:
- strategy development
- complex questions
- in which the overall context must be illuminated
- in which different options and potential solutions are to be implemented
- decisions have to be made quickly and consens-oriented
- the full performance potential of the team or group has to be raised
A small selection of applications since 2007
- Development of a business model for an Internet start-up
Based on the LSP workshop, the company redefined its value proposition (Value Proposition). New customer segments were developed and new partners identified for their development.
- Construction of a new production facility for a Scandinavian company in South America.
The workshop highlighted the impact of the project on the company and identified new potential risks.
As a consequence, private effects were considered in a separate workshop.
- Change of ownership in a large architectural office
In the workshop the roles of the participants (owners and managers) were re-adjusted. A new orientation of the company with the participation of all participants as well as a common goal definition took place. As part of the workshop, teams were set up for the areas of design, technology, marketing and finance, which further enhanced the changes within the company.
- Project Kick-off of a pilot project, run by an international consortium consisting of private companies and government service providers from a wide range of industries.
There were different commercial interests within the consortium. The views on the delivery items were different and the employees hardly knew or did not know each other at all. The delivery date was very tight.
Through the workshop a common understanding of the pilot project and a vision for the follow-up project was created. Short-term and long-term technical difficulties and possible obstacles during implementation could be identified and prioritized. The participants of the different companies became a motivated team, which pursued a common goal.
- Development of a joint management team after a merger of two state-owned senior citizens homes.
A management team consisting of employees was to be formed as a result of a merger of two homes. The goal was to form the “best management”. The workshop honored the competences of each member of the team as well as the decision-making process. The foundation for leaving behind the “We and the others” mentality was laid.
