How it works

Benelizer Improvement Workshop
  1. The participants receive material and instructions from Benelizer and then send concrete suggestions of improvement.
  2. Joint online walk-through of suggestions based on Benelizer’s template to ensure that everyone understands the benefits and challenges of each suggestion (about 1.5 hours).
  3. The participants score all suggestions individually based on a set of criteria for value and likelihood of realization via Benelizer’s app (about 15 minutes).
  4. Joint online walk-through of results and Benelizer’s SCORE map, which shows all the suggestions in a matrix based on value and likelihood of realization, so that it is clear, which proposals you should focus on (about 1.5 hours).

Results guaranteed

You can expect to get 10 – 20 relevant suggestions and 3-5 of them will score high enough for you to be able to implement them right away and thereby realize the benefits. We can guarantee this, because:

The format is centered around concrete opportunities. This ensures that you are not left with more problems or new questions.
The suggestions are made by those who have the biggest insight into the company’s customers, competencies, processes, etc. This ensures that you’re not left with theoretical suggestions or unattainable ideals.
The people that will benefit from the solutions and implement them, are also the ones participating. This ensures organizational support, so that you don’t have to “sell” the ideas afterwards.
The criteria for scoring and selection are clear. This removes noise and ensures that you can start implementing the best suggestions right away.
All suggestions are heard and assessed equally and independently. This ensures high validity and that you don’t overlook any good opportunities or overhear important insights.

Can we purchase extra help to generate ideas?

YES!

In the case where participants do not wish to prepare individually or need help to identify and formulate relevant solution proposals, we offer a targeted ideation workshop where the challenge and possible solution elements are uncovered together. This takes approx. 2 hours and works best by psychical attendance.
