We help enterprises from the private as well as public sector to find the answers to the crucial questions of their future direction, to solve complex issues and to put the solutions into practice.

How PwC can typically help

Corporate strategy

Every company is different and that’s how we approach its strategy creation. We will help you to set up the right strategy for the future direction of your business. As part of our work, we will have a thorough look into your company processes, strengths and weaknesses, market position, and so on, to define the optimal strategy to ensure its growth.

Transaction strategy

When merging two companies, 1+1 should always make more than 2. The transaction strategy we help you define will help you to accomplish this value – what's more, to keep growing! Whether you are on the sell-side or buy-side, we will help you to find out the relevant size of the market you are about to enter, your main competitors, the future development of the market, and the risks associated with the deal. This will ensure that the entire transaction runs smoothly and efficiently and we will help you to maximise its value.

Special projects

We understand that your projects may not belong among one of the above mentioned categories. However, that does not mean we are unable to help you to find a solution to your problem. We enjoy solving special situations in tailored projects to satisfy your needs to the maximum and to help you to accomplish your goals.

Business strategy

Competitors never sleep – and never will! To make sure you stay on top of things, it is necessary to always be a step ahead and to have your business strategy set up in the right way. We will assist you with the creation and set-up of your business strategy, including the selection of suitable sales channels, emphasising the target customer groups and reflecting the current trends for future development.

Market analysis

We will help you to realise how dynamic and attractive certain markets or fields can be. We will analyse the market environment you operate in or plan to enter. Guided by global specialists in the given market and field, we will provide you with detailed information on the opportunities and risks associated with the market.

Our main advantage in service provision to our clients is a stable team with a total of 70 years of experience in the area of strategy consulting. This allows us to be highly efficient, fast and accurate.
