A Glossary
     Oyster-centric definitions of terms used
     on this site.

We help define the value creation goal and frame the challenge of meeting that goal.

Oyster's Role
We guide organizations to identify and develop new product and service concepts and we design the new business models that support those concepts. To this end, we create underlying processes, coach leadership, manage staffing and provide the management tools necessary to ensure the investment value of this work.

At the outset, we help define the value creation goal and frame the challenge of meeting that goal. The time and commitment required to achieve the goal is assessed. That accomplished, Oyster helps establish the oversight and governance structure necessary to pursue new value creation. And we identify the organizational design and capabilities issues to be overcome within a client organization. Finally, we help identify a leader who can embody a "founder's vision" in the pursuit of new value.
