Organisational Strategy:

Placing bold bets

The objective of corporate strategy is to articulate a vision for a company to excel both operationally and financially. Grounded in a deep comprehension of competitive advantage, corporate strategy builds a multiyear plan for leveraging this advantage to formulate business strategies for expansion and to generate enduring, substantial value. A successful corporate strategy entails identifying the most advantageous business portfolio, prioritizing key growth initiatives, and establishing a financial strategy to translate the vision into tangible value.

We assist you in framing decisions by examining the rationale behind value creation, forecasting various potential futures, testing alternative pathways, and selecting a cohesive approach. Through this process, we guide you in allocating resources effectively and ensuring commitment to chosen strategies. Moreover, we help position your company to continuously evolve its strategy over time as new insights are gained and circumstances change.

We support business leaders on bold strategic journeys, grounded in unparalleled empirical and social insights, to beat the market.

OUR APPROACH

Effective strategy cuts through complexity. It reveals the market opportunities to be pursued and the capabilities needed to win. It unifies and inspires people and sets the parameters they need to deliver value to the business, to stakeholders and to customers.

However, the mere presence of a strategy does not guarantee business success. Instead, it is a strategy’s maturity or “strength” that is correlated to financial outperformance. Companies who have got their strategy right (those at the top of their sector) deliver capital returns on average 30 times better than the middle 60% of companies who struggle to return their cost of capital.

Organisationally aligned

Insight Based: Strategy must be built on a deep, ideally proprietary, understanding of industry dynamics across customer preferences, segment characteristics, evolving trends and competitive dynamics.

Advantage Building: Strategy must build not merely articulate competitive advantage. Healthy strategy makes "big bets" that develops differentiation or scale compared to competitors.

Adaptive: The speed of market and industry change requires that organisational strategy is a iterative process capable of identifying and capturing opportunities as they arise.

Resilient: Business is a multiplayer game on a three dimensional playing field - great strategy has been stress tested to check it can stand up to unexpected attacks and shocks.

Organisationally Aligned: Strategy can only ever be effective if the organisation has been aligned to it. This means alignment of projects, resources, incentives and messaging.

Execution Ready: An execution ready strategy is accompanied by a detailed implementation plan, comprehensive change program and a single minded executive determination to bring the strategy to life.
