While the economy becomes more and more driven by technology and fluidity as well as businesses are facing more and more risks and challenges, the proper business strategy helps to improve performance from the start and position the company for success. Thus, business strategy development means constant rethinking of core and supporting functions of a business and adopting new business models in order to help our clients be strategically adrift, capability constrained, and on the way to become a supercompetitor on the market.
In compliance with the business strategy we also provide constant support to our clients on the sustainable optimisation of their entire services – from process optimisation to asset rational utilisation.
By developing end-to-end value-chains that are tailored to your business needs, we can leverage the latest digital technologies and provide competitive advantage in terms of service level, cost and asset efficiency, and flexibility. Among our focus areas there are:
An effective business plan has to take into account the specific characteristics of the external market environment as well as the client’s own internal capabilities. Our wide expertise is helping our clients when they are considering:
Building a strategically aligned, “fit for purpose” operating model is integral for a successful company. Among other things, an operating model determines behavior, workflow and process design, IT decisions, and investment decisions. An underperforming operating model works to the detriment of the overall business.
After establishing clarity about the “what” (the way a company creates value through its differentiating capabilities) and defining the “how” (the way of organising the process of creating value) we work with clients to develop an operating model that brings their strategy to life, by determining the organizational imperatives.
Strategic tools and methodologies deployed in the company form a strategic function which once created helps businesses in differentiating capabilities, cutting costs to reinvest in growth, and taking advantage of digitisation.
The function may contain variety of streams - from corporate and portfolio strategy to shareholder value strategy. The stream work consists in assessing how internal and external changes affect progress towards strategic goals, with foresight and analysis of competitive dynamics and considering business key capabilities. Altogether strategic function streams enable complex development of a business and alignment of work of other functions in the company, which leads to a distinctive value proposition on the market.
