2 Field Service Forum 2014 Post Event Report “ Conference was a perfect opportunity to understand peers dynamics in FS environment - Senior Service Manager – Global Services, GE Oil & Gas By: Thomas Igou “ A note from the editor The 1st Annual Field Service Forum took place place on June 3rd - 4th at the Radisson Blu Hotel Amsterdam. The successful launch event gathered over 150 service professionals from across Europe and from across several industry verticals such as aerospace, marine, oil and gas, healthcare and machinery to discuss, share, network, and benchmark around the theme of improving service margins. Another common ground among delegates is the need to revigorate the field service division, and to create a set up as its own separate business in order to truly change the function from a cost to a profit center and get full support from the organization. The open-ing plenary session from Airbus, for example, quite interestingly described their changed approach to field service in the past few years due to evolving technology (that is transforming the environment) and customers (whose needs are changing). As such, moves have been made towards developing Service Hubs, rede-fining the Field Service Director role, looking at regionalization, single shot expatriation, and other innovative approaches. Some of the challenges identified, going forward, are how to maintain link to HQ, communications both with customers and internally between hubs, and training of Field Service personnel. Overall, the event showed that most organiza-tions, regardless of their industry, are facing the same challenges to improve service margins. The testimonials showed that this is the perfect platform to benchmark, brainstorm, and get inspired with new and innovative concepts. I look forward to seeing you next year! Continue the conversation with me on LinkedIn or Twitter. It is clear that most organizations are facing the same challenges within their field service business. Participants seemed in unison to agree that professional skills development and competence management of field techni-cians is a key element to meet service growth opportunities. There is an evident potential to upsell service products through field techni-cians; however, organizations need to develop their soft skills and create sales incentives through better training programs and KPI’s. There was, as such, a very interesting session from Clicksoftware on gamification, and how it can help to motivate and reward employees for outstanding performances.

CEOs can demand, but the people must want to act. Visions must be sold over & over” - Rosabeth Moss Kanter After spending almost 30 years in the elevator industry, most of it focused on the service business, I find the greatest challenge that our sales people face is not leading a customer discussion with KONE. Our people have been trained on our products and services and that is what they are comfortable talking about. rarely bring any significant value Unfortunately, these discussions I have in strategic accounts, to the customer. Having a background processes, the customer’s business always realized we need to put should be on learning challenges out front. Our focus activities and customer’s business. On a global understanding the and intimately difficult than I ever imagined. is surprisingly more level, this to help sales people ask the and techniques The key is providing tools document the findings. They can then take right kind of questions and the learning and apply this op-portunities to future sales and actions. This is the first of four steps in truly under-standing the needs of our customers. I will review and discuss all four ste ps at the upcom - ing conference. All organiza-tions global face challenges with personnel and competency develop-ment. Becoming a truly customer facing organi-zation is really a change in culture and thus becomes an exercise in change management. Two things stand out as critical to this process. First and foremost is executive sponsorship. From the top down the organization must be committed to making the change and it must be part of the discussion each and every day and at all levels. Second, you need strong advocates at the frontline level who take ownership and “champion” the change process. These “Champions” require inspiration, support and tools to be suc-cessful in their roles. Rarely will companies have dedicated resources that spend 100% of their time on a change management initiative. They will have other responsibilities and always be pulled in many directions. I will provide some insight and considerations for support-ing the success of these important resources to produce a win-win for everyone. 16 Manufacturing Pricing Excellence Platform 2014 change Scholars specializing in management widely report that 70% of projects fail due to a general of change management skills in organizations. Generally manage-ment speaking, change might happen at the individual or team level. Rarely does it happen level where at the organizational multiple large-scale teams and departments concert to achieve a change in transformation. So what does organizational change mean? In 2009, Bill Judge, a change management scholar, defined a capacity of an orga-nization Value creation is only as good as the quantified value you are able to demonstrate to your customers. Quantifying the value of your solu-tions is clearly the most difficult step in the process. Sales people will to change as organizational naturally gravitate to the soft values which are the most intangible and typically carry the least monetary value to the customer. Challenging your teams to dig deeper and “peel back the onion” will allow for more meaningful quantifications and create real impact to the customer. Once sales people are armed with the real value your solutions bring, they and managerial capabilities allowing an enterprise to adapt more quickly and effectively than its competition to changing situations. For an organization to change as a whole, learning has to be a vital component in its values, visions and goals, as well as its everyday operations and assessment. a survey with over In 2012, I conducted 900 pricing professionals on the topic organizational change. The goal was of of to identify the critical dimensions organizational change capacity related to pricing. Having Capable Champions ratings of change received the highest eight dimensions. Closely among all is the dimension of in second position System Thinking indicating that pricing organizational change actors dimen-sions agents and need to think in multiple consider interdependencies and of all pricing change activities. The third critical dimension related to accountability and the embracing of a Culture of Accountability. So in essence, for an organization to engage in change and transformation in pricing, it needs capable and skilled change agents in pricing, a system approach to change at the organization level, and a strong culture of holding people accountable to get the change executed. Here are five more considerations that are essential for organizational change: 1 2 3 4 5 are now in a position to confidently move the con versation from price to value. Naturally this directly links to pricing excellence. Customers appreciate quantified value because they see what your solution does to help their bottom line and make them more successful. Sales people appreciat e quantified Change needs to be intentional and focused: These are two different disci-plines. Vision is critical to drive change. The vision rallies people around a goal and an outcome. This is may be one of the most neglected component of change initiatives. Yet all change management methodologies include a shared vision in their change process. Not many firms have a declared pricing vision. In fact, a 2012 survey we conducted with Change management cannot be reactive. It has to be intentionally design and managed across the organization. Change requires sense of urgency for doing things differently. It starts with an organizational realization that some pricing issues need to be fixed. It is easier to do when the orga-nization value because it supports differentiation and allows them to avoid discounts and even sell at premium price levels. One thing is for sure, if you want to sell value, it is clear that your organization needs to be good at providing is facing adversity or serious pricing problems. It is less easy to do when an organization is successful. Why should I change when we are doing great? How many times have you heard that? meaningful life cycle so lutions. So, if you have great products and services, but find your sales teams need higher discounts to close deals, I can honestly say there is a bet-ter way and I will be happy to share what we have learned and put into practice at KONE. John R. Lynly Can we increase customer’s revenue? Can we decrease customer’s total cost of ownership? Can we minimize customer’s capital requirements? Can we reduce customer’s risks? 4 Steps to Quantify Customer Value 4 Steps to Quantify Customer Value The vision is critical for success: 557 CEO’s showed that only 39% of them had such a pricing vision. Change manage-ment is not project management: They are often mixed A big misconception is that pricing changes only con-cern yes we up. You might hear “change management as do our project” when in part of fact, business professionals solely on the technical focus aspect Proj-ect of their projects. management deals with organizations. Organizational change deals with every-one the technical side of moving from current state to future state. Change management focuses on the people side of that transition. They need equal attention and work hand-in-hand in project teams. Pay attention to all relevant stakeholde rs: pricing teams and sales who touches pricing (finance, supply chain, cus-tomer service, etc.) and who Our survey indicates that change without capable champions and top leader-ship interacts with customers (technical support, drivers, sales, etc.). That requires different organizational road mapping exercises: from stakeholder analysis, to what’s in it for me analysis, to holistic training plans. Change requires leadership support: support is difficult. Resistance to change might come from the top as well. The role of the top leaders are to identify and make resources available to change agents. They remove roadblocks and tackle bottlenecks. Pricing projects are hard to implement. Pricing transformations are even harder. If your organization is stuck in time or unable to embrace large organizational pricing projects, you have to think differently and bring in change experts. Change management is a science and there are amazing training programs out there. In 2013, I became a Prosci® Certified Change Manager and it opened my eyes on how rich the change management and change leadership fields are. The new CAP™ certification (www.changeagentinpricing.com) was designed to include all these considerations as well as insights from these six change management methodologies.

The global aftermarket business is changing rapidly yet many companies are still focus-ing on short-term problems rather than thinking about the implications to the business over a longer period of time, believing that their margins are safe. Time for change Business silos exist today where many companies are developing strategies and organisations to deliver only one part of the total solution to their customer, often missing out on a cohesive offer-ing to doing business, which will leave many renowned names in danger of allowing new entrants into the marketplace. However there is a real opportu-nity compa-nies to allow developed change their business to model and offering and make a significant impact on their business, servitization may be a savour for many western developed companies and a concept which needs further exploring to see what opportunities are available through this concept. When I think about my previous positions within established and market leading companies, the only real issue that concerned me on an ongoing basis was the threat from the Asian market. My career has been built around Aftermarket and Service, which traditionally has been the area which created the profit for the companies who I worked for; however, this is now changing. Many people will recognize that parts generate significant margins, but this is changing and companies must start to realize that margins of 50%+ over the next five years will start to spiral downwards out of control due to increased competition and a disconnection with the customer over what value truly is. For many, the high margins previously achieved will move more towards the mid 30%, and there will be no plan to recover this: sales people will discount to win business based on revenue targets, suppliers will seek a direct route model to mar-ket A couple of predictions over the future of OEM’s and Aftermarket: to maintain their margins, and the customer will have more choice than ever over where they purchase parts. But the real issue is that com-panies service Margins will drop across machinery and • in core areas will move consolidation even further competitor collaboration and • Greater aftermarket from new markets entering solution • New entrants technologies single the customer and provide a • Greater need for data, and integrated be totally integrated to needs and competition focus, and the companies that succeed will of customer cope with the pressure • Solutions will be the organisations will not be able to complex change will be rapid and existing • Pace of away from connecting with their customers, who they say are their most important focus. Defining Servitization So why does it go wrong? Customers do not buy products, they buy solutions to their problems. So, what is “Servitization”? There are many people offering their view of what it is; however, I offer my view, which hopefully is easier to understand. Throughout my career within Engineering/Manufacturing companies I have never seen a complete offering towards the customer, and when I consider this, I sense excellent companies are missing a significant opportunity to connect with their customer and offer true value which translates into improved customer satisfaction and retention. Figure 1 is typical of many companies who operate within a Manufacturing/Engineering business Figure 1 The future leaders of aftermarket profitability need to be thinking differently about their current business model. Customers will in the future expect the product “machine” and service “parts” to be a complete offering, which has a fee to deliver an outcome. How this translates will see extended warranties and maintenance contracts disappear and all that will be left is a monthly fee to provide machinery and optimum operating performance set by customer de- Aftermarket Business Platform 2013 23 mands. lon-ger this happens, the OEM will no When position and will become have a dominant control over the customer a supplier with little entrants will be able to enter experience. market-place, New probably from the financial the market products from suppliers where they buy OEM’s, and then provide the customer the true requirement of product to fulfill the job required. The financial company will manage not only the customer relationship but will dictate terms and conditions on the OEM over specification, cost, features and future development requirements. So what will be left for the OEM? Very little, unless they act now. Manufacturing must change to a service business and recognize that product differentiation against competitor is less and less, investment in service truly opens the door to allow OEM’s to survive the coming years and beyond. The market is changing and the future is still to be discovered. In our upcoming Aftermarket Business Platform, let’s discuss and debate the future and hopefully learn what needs to be changed within our businesses.

If companies anticipated, for example, machine failure and then had the parts and technician on the customer site before the machine failed, then this would have provided a solution where parts are consumed and where the customer considers his supplier to add real value towards his business. It adds value and reduces risk, and therefore Servitization has been achieved. (Figure 2) Figure 2
