MAKING STRATEGY HAPPEN
Taking the right decisions and actions to perform today and transform for tomorrow
Faced with ongoing uncertainty and the pressures to do more with less, how do you strategically optimise your resources and innovate for future growth?
To design your strategy with delivery in mind, you need an understanding of the choices available to make evidence-based decisions. You will need to manage the advantages and challenges you face with confidence that the individual projects are measurable and supporting your overall ambitions.
Battle-scarred from real delivery experience, we develop enhanced strategies that are designed with the delivery in mind. As part of this process, our consultants work with you to help balance the competing needs of the business in delivering your strategy.
Strategic design and decision-making
Progress the right priorities by understanding your value and differentiators from other businesses. Understanding the value drivers and how they create a value chain enables decisions to be taken holistically, rather than in isolation and leads to effective evaluation of the business model.
Balance the investment of change resources to maximise outcomes and ROI. Just as resources and investments must be re-appraised, so too must the overall programme and portfolio to ensure that it continues to support your organisation to deliver its strategy.
A healthy culture can unify your teams, make a positive impression on customers and help drive sustainable competitiveness. From diagnostic to blueprint development and creating people-centred interventions, enable your teams to move to a more productive state.
Mergers, acquisitions and divestments
Between 70% and 90% of mergers and acquisitions fail to meet expected cost savings and synergies. A fundamental rebalancing is required, with a greater focus on longer-term execution (including cultural and operational integration) plus better management of initial expectations.
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.”
