Target operating models are visual representations that show the relationship between a vision and strategy that define an organisation and its operational support pillars involved in daily BAU, such as suppliers, locations, value chains, and management system.
Target operating models can be produced in different formats from one page to 10+ pages, depending on the seniority of the audience and the level of detail captured within.

Cross-functional communication can cause disconnects if departments misjudge their contribution to the overall business operating model.
COOs can mitigate these risks and transform their organisations by providing alternative visual formats of the same target operating model, including one page A4, ten pages semi-detailed document, A3 or A2 Visio model, interactive web-based, and workshops to help with its interpretation.
