+++ ValueCheck! — Disruptive Task: “Bust the Silos — Convert the VIRTUAL to REALITY”

But nevertheless we live in a digital world. Social Media and all our Social Activities will never be able to create relatedness. It enables connections. That’s it! — Kill stupidity in business driven by executives who still use their analog thinking in a digital world.

ValueCheck! is one of the important tools and methods in Value Communication’s principles and philosophy. Via ValueCheck, the development of effective communication processes is very easy.



+++ ValueCheck! — Disruptive and/or Destructive Innovation?

Disruptive innovation is not a threat as it would be perceived by the university management of Harvard Business School based on last debates about whether entering to the business of online education or not. What makes innovation disruptive is the way it makes a product, a service or an idea remarkable with an unusual approach to renew our consumption patterns and lifestyles.

Since ValueCheck! contains a disruptive strategy, it checks H2H and B2B aspects with an unusual way to renew the company strategies.



+++ ValueCheck! — ’Rent a Brain’ is the perfect way to succeed in Social Biz

Very successful business owners, emphasize the effectiveness of having help from a mentor or a colleague in order to accomplish their goals.

ValueCheck! acts as a mentor for companies in order to achieve their goals and change their company strategies into more innovative communication techniques.



+++ ValueCheck! — How Social Media leads to Social Business

It is apparent that those B2B service companies require important innovation and transformation in order to satisfy the expectations of their potential customers. Therefore, the importance of „ValueCheck! Audits“are apparent as a solution to check the weaknesses of businesses in Social Selling and Social Businesses. „ValueCheck!“ questions include many related topics so as to strengthen the strategies of companies.

Even many successful companies fail to satisfy customers. ValueCheck Audits provides better perspective to see what is missing on track of keeping good connections with the market and customers.



+++ ValueCheck! — HBS: The Professor’s Innovation Dilemma

Our Take: You can’t do value education without disruptive Value Innovation.

I think, in the age of digital transformation, education needs to get some disruptive innovation as well. Maybe, we can call it “digital education”. Digital Education allows many applicants around the world to benefit from online education platforms via several tools such as iPhone, iPad and other portable instruments. Considering all of these, I am pretty surprised that how as one of the top ranked and most successful universities, Harvard Business School, has a dilemma about entering online education.

ValueCheck! follows the latest trends in order to guide companies in the best way so as to adapt itself and its customers to the age of digital transformation.



+++ ValueCheck! — Beyond Design: Technology enables H2H interaction

In the future it is more about Interaction & H2H and less about Designers…

The core meaning of the tweet is design matters, nevertheless; it is not solely enough to become very successful. Besides design, key enablers of PARC include other systems such as intelligent manufacturing, model-based reasoning, integrated planning and control, and printed electronics. Moreover, without effective human-to-human interaction and innovative approaches to satisfy customer, a superior design only leads to empty promises, or let’s say “all fur coat and no knickers”!

ValueCheck! emphasizes human-to-human interaction and innovative approaches that guide companies for a better strategy to adapt in future technologies and the market system.



+++ ValueCheck! — Print in the Digital Age!

In the age of digital transformation, it is a big mistake to limit advertising and marketing based only on printing like we already know it. There are many platforms and social networks to work on in order to advertise a product or a system by drawing attentions. The age of the so called „digital transformation“ needs better rethinking over analogue approaches in order to satisfy consumer needs in a best way.

ValueCheck! also focuses on the importance of social networks and various platforms in order to catch the spirit of the age of digital transformation and distribute it to companies as applicants of ValueCheck! Audits.










































ValueCheck! Best Biz Advice ever 2014.001

Being an entrepreneur doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. Most successful business owners will tell you they could not have accomplished their goals without help–from a mentor, colleague, even mom and dad. – Matt Villano


By Şükran Ceren Salalı, Value Communication Fellow


Matt Villano created a great and precise blog post under the name of The Best Business Advice You’ll Ever Get and highlighted several comments from various business people. In The Age of Customer, I think, the point Villano wants to draw attention is the importance of Human-to-Human aspects in having healthy business relations and being successful.

Each professional stated the importance of teamwork and advice on track of being a successful business people. For instance, Sheila Johnson, founder and CEO, Salamander Hotels & Resorts, stated that working with a great team is noteworthy. Likewise, most of them, very successful business owners, emphasize the effectiveness of having help from a mentor or a colleague in order to accomplish their goals.


Our Take: Analyze & Re-Think what you have to do to do it best!

What we at Value Communication aim by „ValueCheck!“ is to help business people to become far more successful in their sectors. By answering the questions of „ValueCheck! Audits“, a company can become aware of its abilities and inadequacies in a more detailed way. The important thing is we treat our customers as (best) friends. We provide a smart and fast check-up to our customers by answering two questions: How to “Connect Innovation to Profit” and How to unify “Communication, Art and Culture” by covering three areas such as Analysis, Audits, Coachings.

 ValueCheck Audits: Fast-track your communication success


Kommunikation ist (k)eine Kunst.

Es klingt fast profan, ist es letztlich aber doch nicht: Kommunikation setzt Dinge in Bewegung. Und werthaltige Kommunikation stellt den nachhaltigen profitablen Geschäftsverlauf sicher. In unserem Marketing-getriebenen Digital-Zeitalter sind neue Marketing-Kommunikationskonzepte, -maßnahmen und -wege gefragt, die Innovationen in den Fokus stellen. Doch leicht gerät die Suche nach Innovation zur  “Jagd nach dem Goldenen Kalb”. Zu viele “Buzz Words” und dubioses Experten-Kauderwelsch schaffen eher Verwirrung als Ordnung.

Abhilfe tut not.


Die zentrale Frage lautet:
Wie kann man die Kommunikationsfähigkeit eines Unternehmens bewerten? 

Die Analyse und Bewertung der Kommunikationsfähigkeit einer Unternehmung ist für ein erfolgreiches Marketing eine Grundvoraussetzung, um profitable Geschäfte und prosperierendes Wachstum zu ermöglichen. Bislang erfolgt dies in der Praxis aber nicht. Getestet und analysiert wird vielmehr, welche Kommunikationsmaßnahmen bei Image-/Markenaufbau und -pflege sowie bei verkaufs- und absatzfördernden Kampagnen welche Effekte bringen. Für jeden Kommunikationskanal gibt es eigene, spezifisch ausgelegte Auswertungskriterien.

Wir wissen zudem durch aktuelle Forschungsergebnisse, dass Sonderwerbeformen, ›Special Effects‹ oder Crossmedia-Kampagnen in der sog. ›werblichen Kommunikation‹ stets mehr bringen, aber auch stets mehr kosten [vgl. u. a. Dr. Peter Haller, GfK: ›Building Best Brands‹, München 2009]. Die Frage nach der bestmöglichen Wirkung spezifischer Kommunikationsmaßnahmen beantwortet aber noch nicht die nach der Qualität der Kommunikationsfähigkeit eines Unternehmens. Hier sind ganz andere Faktoren und Einflussgrößen zu bewerten, die weit über das Spektrum der klassischen Werbewirkungsforschung oder von ›Media-Audits‹ hinausführen.


Werthaltigkeit mit System

Die Werthaltigkeit der Kommunikation muss durch systematische Erforschung, kontinuierliche qualitative Überwachung und die zentrale Steuerung der Geschäftskommunikation erfolgen. Innerhalb unserer Value-Communication-Methodik erfolgt dies durch ein ›Value Check Audit‹.

Hier wird zunächst per ›ValueCheck‹ ein Fragenkatalog abgearbeitet, der acht zentrale Themenbereiche umfasst, die jeweils mit Detail-Fragen unterfüttert werden und deren Beantwortung im ›Ja-Nein-Keine-Angaben‹-Rhythmus abgearbeitet werden. Die Ergebnisse werden im ›Value Score Index‹ dargestellt. Die Befragung wird vom Value-Auditor mit Unternehmensentscheidern innerhalb von 45 bis 90 Minuten durchgeführt. Die Auswertung ergibt schlüssige, konkrete Anhaltspunkte für die Verbesserungs- und Innovationsmöglichkeiten der Organisation und Strukturen, der Kommunikationsarchitektur, der Kommunikationsprozesse, der Kommunikationskanäle und -mittel.

Weiterer Schritt: Vom Audit zum Benchmark

In Value Profile-Workshops können die Ergebnisse vorgestellt, diskutiert und in Handlungsempfehlungen inklusive einer Roadmap umgesetzt werden. Auf dieser Basis ist eine ganzheitliche Bewertung der Kommunikationsfähigkeit möglich; regelmäßige Updates erlauben, Verbesserungen vorzunehmen.

Zweckdienlich ist es, die ValueCheck Audits auf Branchen und Wirtschaftsbereiche auszudehnen, um über Benchmark-Vergleiche die eigenen Fähigkeiten kritisch prüfen und optimieren zu können. Über ValueCheck und ValueProfile erfolgt die strategische Analyse, die im Ergebnis das Design einer neuen Kommunikationsarchitektur liefert. Die Performanz der Kommunikationsarchitektur hängt von der Güte des Value Scoutings ab, dass heisst dem Aufspüren geeigneter, relevanter Kommunikationsinnovationen, die kontinuierlich auf Basis von Wissensvermittlung mit Best-Practice-Auswertungen in der Value Academy darstellbar sind. Das Aufspüren, die Auswahl und die Implementierung von Kommunikationsinnovationen muss als iterativer Prozess verstanden werden, der durch die Value Audits auf seine Wertigkeit und Wirkung überprüft und permanent optimiert werden kann.
