O.C.A.S.I.O

Determining the Optimal Capital Allocation for Strategic Innovation Options

CREATING SLACK FOR INNOVATION

Deciding how much capital to allocate to any activity is challenging. Too little, and there is no effect; no rationale, and resources will be dispersed and wasted. Too much, and further waste occurs.

When it comes to strategic renewal an optimal commitment is vital. Our O.C.A.S.I.O. process asks a fundamental question: what constitutes an appropriate amount of financial resources to allocate towards the articulation and dynamic management of a Portfolio of Strategic Innovation Options?

It is based on authoritative scholarship, and applies a unique protocol of socialised decision making that satisfies both strategic response and renewal concerns and coheres with the organisational context.  Most importantly, it produces a clear quantitative commitment that is qualified by structured conversations and the explicit negotiation of different perspectives. It is transparent, original and very robust.

WHAT IS OCASIO?

The O.C.A.S.I.O. process socialises the problem of allocation, engages stakeholders, provides terms of reference, identifies appropriate levels of commitment, mandates strategic renewal activities and supports the development of a Portfolio of Strategic Options.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM THIS PROCESS?

O.C.A.S.I.O. has been developed for directors, key decision-makers and leaders who recognise the need to engage in strategic response and renewal activities.
