Developing the right strategy, delivering the significant changes it demands, while reacting to a dynamic market and changing customers’ needs… all while running the business presents real challenges for many organisations. ‘Making strategy happen’ requires an appreciation across all these activities. Simply put, it is at the intersection of these activities where strategy happens or it doesn’t.
MAKING STRATEGY HAPPEN
Taking the right decisions and actions to perform today and transform for tomorrow
Battle-scarred from real delivery experience, we can support businesses to develop strategies with their delivery in mind, and deliver complex changes with the running of the business in mind. While thinking of these activities as a set of distinct, linear, budgetary driven steps is now very much outdated the speed of change driven by technology and globalisation demands a much more innovative approach for many organisations today. We pride ourselves on bringing these innovative approaches while maintaining an honest sense of pragmatism to enable our clients to successfully deliver differentiated and sustained returns.
Strategic design and definition
We help you set on the right course for success to align your investments, capabilities, plan and targets to your strategy. This enables the leadership team and wider organisation to make effective decisions and difficult trade-offs.
We help you to establish the portfolio of change and the capability to manage it effectively. This enables the business can continually align its efforts, understand its constraints and make timely decisions to assure the resources and delivery efforts are optimised, and the returns are assured.
Initiative leadership and delivery
We put your people at the heart of all transformations, from large complex interventions to the definition and delivery of individual initiatives. This empowers your teams to be more productive and confident during and beyond delivery.
Mergers, acquisitions and divestments
We have successfully delivered integrations and separations with an appreciation for the multi-faceted nature of such deals. Ensure your investment does not become one of the estimated 70% to 90% of deals that fail to meet their expected cost savings and synergies.
We are privileged to be working with some of the UK’s largest and most innovative organisations on their most complex change programmes. View our case studies.
Global joint venture integration: sales capability organisation design
“The project to refresh the corporate strategy at UCAS was built upon the principle of working shoulder to shoulder with the senior leadership. A newly galvanised organisation has delivered tangible results off the back of the strategy work and is a great example of our mission to deliver change that counts.”
James Cooper, client director and winner of the MCA strategy award 2019
