DESIGN YOUR MATRIX

Following a quick 4 step process

  • The first step to building a matrix is to frame the purpose or ambition for the matrix in the upper left hand corner.


    For example:

    • Corporate Success (10x growth)


    Tip:
    The purpose should be framed in a few words and should state a serious intent to all stakeholder.

  • A dimension is a word or concept that can be broken down in parts. Identifying the dimensions of the matrix solution is the most important part of the journey.


    Dimension 1 on the x-axis are outcome based objectives.
    For example:

    • Customer focus (10x customers)

    • Product management

    • Employee focus

    • Financial (50% CTI)


    Dimension 2 on the y-axis are the focus areas.
    For example:

    • Sales & Marketing

    • Production

    • Engineering

    • Finance


    Define the outcome based objectives on the x-axis.


    Tip:
    When determining what the dimensions are, make sure that they are limited and that there are no overlaps.

  • After you have determined what your dimensions are, you can now make the connections in the intersects. Each intersect in the matrix represents a value creation concept.


    For example:
    How is "Employee Focus" influenced by "Production"?
    Example:

    • Improve employee feedback in production


    Tip:
    A matrix is a storyboard and a communication tool, use language carefully and consistently.

  • Evaluate which intersects have the highest potential. Then zone in and enrich these intersects.


    Here we need to ideate possible solutions, build quick prototypes and obtain feedback fast to ensure that we are on the right track.

USE THE MATRIX TO INNOVATE

Have you ever created a mind map and then realized that there are connections between concepts that you did not see?


“Conceptual blending in a matrix is a process whereby we connect concepts and ideas to form something new but always in context of a bigger picture”
– The agile mind from Estanislao Bachrach
