Right Lane Review — The Collective Pivot
COVID-19 has dominated our news feeds, our conversations and our headspace. What is unique is that we are experiencing this collectively. How we experience it will differ but this pandemic affects all of us.

We brought our office furniture home, found nooks and cupboards to turn into offices, negotiated table space, bemoaned internet speeds and re-negotiated our calendars. The step you take after you pivot is the first of many towards adapting. In this edition of the Right Lane Review we outline processes, tools and practices that will support you to move towards adapting.

At Right Lane, we’ve observed recurring challenges in the way organisations approach benefits realisation. We suggest that organisations adopt a benefits realisation hierarchy, at the top sits the ultimate impact sought by the organisation. Below that is a causal logic demonstrating how the benefits are interrelated. This forms the organisation’s house view on how value is created, and allows for management to contain, sharpen and link benefits.Read More
What does the term ‘business model’ actually mean, and is it distinct from a corporate strategy? At Right Lane we believe that the two concepts are complementary descriptions of an organisation’s approach to winning in the market. Each represents a different cognitive approach, and both are essential for leaders to contemplate when charting the course for their organisation.Read More
