Accelerate your growth with our proven framework

IX Research for Operations and Technology Leaders

The framework guides your membership engagement plan to ensure alignment, feedback, and progress is made across business processes and cross-functional teams.

THE 5 SWIM LANES OF RESEARCH

How does the IX Framework work?

  • Business
    Objectives

  • Strategic
    Initiatives

  • Operational Architecture

  • Solution
    Selection

  • Change
    Management

Industrial Transformation Business Objectives
Set business objectives

Business Objectives are set by the CEO and senior leadership team in accordance with the organization’s vision and mission

These objectives are the north star of transformation initiatives, with the other four swim lanes in alignment with and in support of these objectives.

Industrial Transformation Strategic Initiatives
Establish strategic initiatives

Strategic initiatives align resources and focus efforts to achieve specific business objectives

Membership supports your strategic initiatives across:

  • Industrial Transformation Readiness
  • Factory of the Future
  • Autonomous Plant
  • Quality 4.0
  • Sustainable Operations
  • Future of Industrial Work
Industrial Transformation Operational Architecture
Understand the operational architecture

Operational architecture is the connective tissue between strategic initiatives and solution selection

A solid operational architecture:

  • Aligns IT and OT groups, technologies, and requirements.
  • Answers build vs. buy questions.
  • Defines the role of infrastructure, platforms, and applications.
  • Manages the risk of vendor lock-in.
  • Ensures sustainability and scalability of solutions.
  • Simplifies and minimizes the number of disparate systems.
  • Defines the role of legacy, cloud, and edge.
  • Ensures successful data and analytics models.
  • Establishes the future vision and value of digital twins.
Industrial Transformation Solution Selection
Select a research-based solution

Solution Selection is a critical component of Industrial Transformation that must:

  • Effectively identify the needs of users and executives.
  • Build a defendable and achievable business case journey.
  • Effectively scan and assess market players - free of an internal and external bias.
  • Gain organizational buy-in.
  • Align to the architecture and roadmaps of the organization.
Industrial Transformation Change Management
See momentum with change management

Change Management is where  transformational strategies become reality for the rest of the organization

Effective change management assesses the organization’s maturity and progresses along with a roadmap that moves a company from establishing momentum to crossing the transformation chasm and delivering value.

FAQ

Have questions? 

We're here to help. If you have a question that is not answered here, please contact our team.

Is LNS Research a consulting firm?

No, LNS Research is not a consulting firm, though we work with many companies that utilize consultants.  LNS Research is an advisory and research organization that partners with your company and provides you with a specific Industrial Transformation (IX) roadmap and a membership engagement plan. Our expert analysts will provide you with industry best practices, help you make key IX decisions and get organizational buy-in, walk you through our research, and help you avoid the transformation chasm so that you can pivot from vision to value.

Can I include additional members of my organization on calls/events?

Depending on your membership plan selected, we will collaborate regularly with your primary, executive, and additional team members.  If you would like to include other personnel beyond that in your advisory calls or at events, your LNS Research Account Manager will work with you to determine how to best include those additional team members.

LNS Research analysts frequently speak at both virtual and in-person events and are featured on webcasts and podcasts.
