focus / a new direction
Explanation:
baker = (dry) nurse
bakermat = origin, cradle
baken = beacon (Signalfeuer)

Das Ausgangswort könnte eine Abkürzung von "bakermat" sein, aber das scheint nicht so richtig zu passen. Eine Krankenschwester kanns auch nicht sein.
Das läßt nur nocht "baken" übrig.
"de bakens verzetten" = to lay out a new course (VanDale). Das scheint mir das Einzige was in diesen Kontext pasen könnte.
