Value Creation

Creating value in today’s market requires a broader, bolder perspective

Value Creation

Whatever your business priorities, we can help you unlock new ways to create value.

Whether you are seeking to cut costs, maximise the potential of your people, reinvent your business model or break into new markets, start with a value creation mindset.

We help you act fast so you can stay ahead and own every moment. Exploring unexpected angles, we define new levers of value creation that give you the confidence to move forward.

Together, we can create value.

What’s your value creation story - how PwC can help?

We’ve been looking closely at the paths that businesses are taking in their pursuit of growth – and what makes each of these strategies successful. Every business has its own unique circumstances, but four broad strategies (which are not mutually exclusive) dominate: investing to grow, divesting and optimising, pivoting, and doing more with what you have.

Investing to grow

Businesses that rode out the pandemic strongly have emerged in a good position to build on their strengths.

While organic growth can be the right choice for some, for those with a surplus of cash and a healthy balance sheet, acquisition of a promising business is the go-to option for growth.

We can help you develop or refine your strategy that will guide your business to achieve sustainable growth.

Divesting and optimising

Companies that are focusing on their core business, selling off anything that no longer fits with the central strategy.

It is an increasingly popular strategy – but doing it well takes care, planning and preparation.

We can help you assess the implications of your divestiture across their business from any point in the deal process, with a value creation mindset.


Many businesses were forced to pivot during the pandemic, but pivoting can be about opportunity and not just survival.

A true pivot shifts the business to reflect changing customer needs and in doing so creates access to tangible benefits such as revenue growth, increased profitability and a greater market share.

We’ll help you explore your business ambitions, generate and evaluate key initiatives, identify options to fill gaps and deliver your plan, which may include turnaround strategy, international growth strategy or market entry strategies.

Doing more with what you have

It is very rare to see true optimisation in large, complex businesses. More value can always be found, whether it’s through more efficient ways of working, maximising the potential for cross selling, or encouraging greater innovation and collaboration.

We can help you take a fresh look at business and operating models to help you establish cross functional capabilities, drive procurement and shared service savings, and embrace digital technologies.

The value bridge

Knowing where to start when it comes to Value Creation can be difficult.

We use a framework called the value bridge to help our clients visualise and work through the core foundations in order to prioritise initiatives that will result in the highest value capture.

Every company situation is unique, so the application of the value bridge will vary by sector and for different circumstances.
