Strategy Consulting

Organisations often battle to define a lasting competitive strategy or purely implementing a strategy. Crafting strategy is an analysis-driven exercise. It’s not an activity where executives can succeed by sheer effort and creativity.

Judging what strategy to pursue should ideally be grounded in a probing assessment of an company’s external and internal situation. The essence of the strategy development will manifest in the organisational activities – choosing to perform activities differently or to perform different activities than rivals. Otherwise, the strategy will be nothing more than a marketing slogan that will not withstand competition. A strategy also needs to create a line of sight between the organisations strategy and the individual performance measures

Business Architecture

Changes to how organisations run their operations intensify as the marketplace changes and become increasingly competitive. There are many common “events” that most often drive the need for developing, evaluating or modifying the operating model of the organisation.

So, if you’re concerned about the economic outlook, and if you get challenging questions from your board about the resilience of your organisation’s performance, how do you best respond? It turns out that in times of crisis and in times of economic slowdown, not everybody fares the same. Those organisations that make the shift to an operating model which combines operations capabilities with digital technologies, one that can create value, lower costs, and improve customer experience, giving organisations an edge in a highly competitive landscape, are the ones that do well.

Business Process Engineering

Organisations are under pressure. Margins are stressed from all sides because of steadily rising labour costs and more intense competition.

On top of that, today’s customers have high expectations from efficient interactions with companies to convenient, reliable and value for money product and service deliveries. The customer’s expectations continue to surge as digital disruptors alike raise the bar for personalised service — on the back of what, at times, is an advantaged cost structure. As organisations struggle to adapt, and even to survive, they increasingly pursue initiatives to address margin strain and more demanding customer expectations.

Supply Chain Consulting

A company’s performance is often restricted by fragmented decision making. To deal with increasing complexity, decision making has been split into functions such as Finance, Sales, Procurement, Manufacturing and Distribution. In many cases these functions act as separate silos, making decisions based on their own objectives, incentives and locally available data.

Silo behaviour leads to Demand/Supply mismatches resulting in loss of revenue and an increase in Operating Expenses and Working Capital.

To address the above mentioned issues, companies need a structured approach and process to drive a single set of forward-looking numbers over a 12 to 24-month planning horizon.
