New Growth Playbook

Transform Your Business Model for the Digital Economy

The New Growth Playbook™ is a high-impact learning programme for senior executives and their teams who are tasked with or involved in driving new growth and value for their organisations

Programme at a Glance

Simon Torrance, senior consultant and member of the World Economic Forum’s global agenda council, has developed this brand new online video programme which has been delivered to senior management teams of some of the world’s most dominating businesses.

The focus of this programme is on helping senior executives incorporate advanced digital business models* that move the needle in terms of customer and shareholder value.

The programme features brand new financial analysis of hundreds of companies across sectors to answer questions including:

  • Why and how have companies with advanced digital business models rapidly overtaken traditional incumbents in growth and value?
  • How can traditional incumbents create a better business model mix to positively impact their value to customers and shareholders?

*Business Model Definition

The way a company, business unit or product group...

...seeks to create value for customers, capture value for itself, and share value with others; where it allocates its capital and resources; what organisation it creates and talent it nurtures; what its purpose and role in the world is or could become. Ultimately your business model determines your growth rate, return on assets, margins and valuation.


Backed by new research


New financial analysis of 100's of companies across multiple sectors shows which business models outperform others on CAGR, RoA, EBIT and valuation and why.

How to protect the core and invent the future in parallel?
