Strategy and transformation
A clear strategy that’s communicated well through various corporate activities can give an organisation that competitive edge to not only overtake its rivals, but fulfil its mission and goals more successfully. Strategy is not just about planning, but about being creative and able to adapt to a fast changing environment. Strategies without actions, however, are worthless – so our transformation programmes focus on concrete choices and actions that are rooted deep within the company.
Strategic Process and Medium Term Planning: A strategic planning process helps companies decide where to focus, where and how to compete, and how to allocate resources. Throughout the process, we review and challenge clients' strategic assumptions in a medium and long term perspective. We work to identify the best marketplace opportunities to build value within the company. We also help clients develop an understanding of their internal capability, as well as highlight any performance gaps, and set up tactical goals and tracking systems that ensure results.
Business Opportunities Creation: We help clients look for new sources of revenue and opportunities through new value propositions, distribution channels and customer segments. In an era of increasing turbulence, some companies will have to review their traditional business opportunities and revise their core business. We help managers look deep within their organisations to find undervalued, unrecognised or underutilized assets, to help them create new growth and value.
Planning for strategic transformation: All companies are in a transformation process. We use our expertise and years of experience to support our clients in the management of this process with suitable tools. If not properly budgeted and resourced, a change programme will fail. Furthermore, turning breakthrough ideas into actions sometimes require difficult decisions, which leadership teams may be unprepared or unwilling to face. Successful transformation is about planning, control, mobilising energy and the willingness to anticipate and adapt to change. We can help to achieve that.
