SO WHAT. IS YOUR PURPOSE?
WHY WE ARE

BRINGING RELEVANCE TO THE WORLD

Most companies don’t know why their customers are buying from them. Or why guests are booking and staying, which in a time of commoditization is tricky. Just like not knowing why co-workers choose to work for you, or why they leave you. The Corona Outbreak has made people more aware than ever before of matters like footprint, purpose and relevance. What is it that makes you relevant and stand out in the crowd?

Finding your purpose is key, as well as actively living it. Create your own Relevance Blueprint, starting with purpose. For yourself, your brand and/or your organization.

You need to have a purpose that is bigger than yourself. Or you will only be serving yourself.

WHO WE ARE

WE ARE REVERSE ENGINEERS

Who do you think you are? Steve Jobs once said: “It’s more fun to be a pirate, than to join the Navy.” As Reverse Engineers we like to challenge traditional and process thinking. And make purpose and intended experience leading for everything else. We help close the gap between brand promise and reality.

Reverse Engineering starts with defining a compelling purpose and an appealing identity. Combined like yin and yang, they are the foundation for great things to happen. Why you are and who you are or want to be, will drive behavior and process in your organization, more than anything else.

SHOW YOUR FACE

Your defined identity tells the world who you are. And what you stand for. At Google everybody is a Googler. Every co-worker at Starbucks is a partner. Adidas has coaches, Mazda has Rebels, and up to the CEO at Le Pain Quotidien everybody is a Host. Having one identity, as a ‘virtual job title’ for all co-workers in your organization takes all hierarchy away and makes it super clear what the number one focus of everybody is.

Finding your purpose is key, as well as actively living it. Create your own relevance blueprint, starting with purpose. For yourself, your brand and/or your organization.

WHAT WE DO

WE DEFINE PURPOSE AND BRING IT TO LIFE. EVERY DAY ON EVERY TOUCHPOINT.

Next to purpose and identity every co-worker in your organization should know what it is that makes you stand out in the crowd. This should be formulated in a short sentence that is easy to remember, like a crisp elevator pitch.

So what is it that you are doing to bring your purpose to life? What in essence do you do, that makes you relevant? What do you do that turns customers into fans? And co-workers into ambassadors.

By actively bringing your purpose to life, you will be more meaningful and build more value for both shareholders and society in a broader perspective, than by merely focusing on financial and tactical objectives, which will benefit you/your organization in the short term.

WE TRANSFORM.

Everybody has a default culture, meaning we always fall back to standard settings, automatic behavior. So in order to make a change last, you need to build a new default. The Start Reverse Engineers will help you transform:

BUSINESS INTO MEANINGFUL EXPERIENCES

COMPANY NAMES INTO EMPLOYER BRANDS

CUSTOMERS & GUESTS INTO HAPPY FANS

CO-WORKERS INTO BRAND AMBASSADORS

MANAGERS INTO EPIC LEADERS

TRAINING INTO REVERSE LEARNING

HOW WE DO IT

BY DESIGNING CORE GUIDING BLUEPRINTS AS COMMON NORTH. ALWAYS STARTING REVERSE.

Promises, promises. With a brand promise you can tell your external stakeholders what they can rely on, and often what you will do in case you don’t live up to expectations. A brand promise should be connected to your purpose, your identity and the experience(s) you want to deliver. It is an extension of how you want to position your brand. It should be a short, genuine and engaging message.

In order to live up to your promise, it is very important that everyone in the organization knows essentially how you do what you do. Ideally, the answer to that question will be formulated in such a way that it can also be communicated to external stakeholders.

YOUR BLUEPRINT

Already for decades many big corporate headquarters suffer from the so-called 3C syndrome: always wanting to be (too) Complete, (too) Correct and tending to make things (too) Complex.

If you want your co-workers to live your organization’s purpose, bring your identity to life and deliver on the intended (customer) experience, they need to understand exactly what is expected from them.
Start Reverse has developed a one-pager on which your relevance and customer experience strategy is summarized, including what is expected from co-workers and their leaders. This is called the Reverse Blueprint, also referred to as Relevance Compass.
