Strategy Consulting

Our strategy consulting practice helps you clarify your organisation’s challenges and opportunities then decide what to do about them and, what not to do so that you can implement a successful strategic management process.

In principle, you want to use your strengths to pursue the best opportunities and solve the biggest challenges. This may seem simple enough, but in practice it is often difficult to deliver. This is where we can help.

We take a pragmatic approach that cuts through the mystique. We apply simple, powerful principles that have been field tested and proven to work so that you create a truly effective strategy that aligns and integrates your policies and actions.

We can do this because we use evidence-based, scientific principles to go deeper than the typical ‘cookie cutter’ approach to strategy that creates bland statements of mission, vision, values and goals. We also urge you to face issues and not take the easy route of avoiding conflict. Our systems-thinking approach encourages the whole organisation to be considered.  The diagram illustrates a typical model that we use as part of this process.

For example, we helped a government ministry in the Middle East to break out from a 2 year exercise that had generated volumes of reports but little in the way of results. Using a 2 day facilitated workshop, we helped them deliver the decisions they needed to agree an outline strategy.

In another case, we helped a successful family business develop a new strategy for their group of 30 subsidiaries to increase their profit by a factor of 10 to help them attract external equity investors.  You can find out more in the case studies in our downloads section.
