Our approach to strategy development is determined by client need and preference. We believe you need the right strategy for your organization, a strategy that you can actually implement.
In many cases, we support the client team by transferring our knowledge and experience, and helping build executive alignment along the way. Other times, we are asked to focus on delivering “the answer,” doing most of the analysis and ultimately presenting strategic recommendations. Or we work “over the shoulder,” providing tools and ad hoc support when it is important that client personnel are out front.
Our capabilities enable us to help clients address fundamental strategic issues, including:
- Strategic Foundation: What is our long-range vision and aspiration? How do we differentiate? What are our key competitive advantages and disadvantages? Which is our primary value discipline?
- Business Portfolio: What is our current business portfolio, and how do those components compare in terms of size, profitability, risk and growth potential? How can we identify and strengthen relationships with our most valuable customers?
- Capabilities: How can we identify and leverage our most valuable capabilities across our business and markets? What actions can we take to protect and strengthen our advantages and mitigate our disadvantages?
- Future Profitable Growth: What is the realistic potential for growth—organic, adjacencies, new products, new customers, new markets—and how do we capture that growth? What is the vision for our future business portfolio and what steps are required to build that future?
