VCW – Value Creation Wheel ®
VCW- Value Creation Wheel is a real-life problem solving framework which helps to solve the top priority problems, challenges and paradoxes of organizations, governments, societies, and individuals.
The VCW aims at discovering implementable solutions (Go/No-Go) through partnerships. Compared to other problem-solving tools, the VCW offers unique features at different levels: a) promotes partnerships through the involvement internal and/or external stakeholders while involving supportive and/or skeptical people, b) requires the commitment of key decision makers on critical steps, c) separates ideas/solutions from filters/criteria, d) is a transversal meta-framework that is both agile and structured, and e) presents a MAP approach (Maximize, Analyze, Prioritize) to find the best value proposition and solution.
The VCW results from two decades of partnerships across the world. It has been applied as a problem-solving tool in companies across different sectors (from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies), public policy projects (from rebranding of cities until the creation of innovation cities), and schools of 18 countries specialized in different fields (from business to science, law, engineering and medical schools).
In order to achieve the best possible result, the VCW is a meta-framework which can complement and/or integrate existing solutions, established tools or other frameworks (e.g., 5Whys, situational analysis, RELQUAL, brainwriting, brainstorming, design thinking, scorecards, SERPVAL, strategic triangle, SCAMPER, business model, KPIs) to present solutions developed in co-creation.
