Business strategy consulting
The first step to successfully compete in the digital world is to have a strategic view of where the company wants to go. That clear vision is a critical first step to prepare the organization to review its value proposition and to identify what is required to change in its processes to deliver value to the customers.
We help organizations clarify their strategies following a practical approach that integrates execution right from the beginning. This way of working allows organizations to develop a clear view of what they are trying to achieve, and most importantly, how they are going to do it.
Simplicity is our motto. We translate strategy into simple terms that everybody in the organization can understand and contribute to.
Once the strategy is in place, we help organizations connect the plan with the processes that will provide the foundation for its implementation. This critical step includes the improvement of existing processes and the design and development of new ones that are required to execute the strategy.
The main commodity in the digital era is data. There is no doubt about the importance of harnessing data to use it as input for strategic and operational decisions. However, most organizations find it very difficult to use data to generate meaningful information that executive teams can use, for instance, to monitor the execution of the strategy, validate the strategic hypothesis, and get insights about the future.
There is no shortage of data in organizations; on the contrary, data is superabundant. The challenge is to understand what information is relevant for the business and how to make sense of it. Presenting data in a friendly, easy to use way is of paramount importance.
Technological advances have shifted the focus of managing and using data from an IT issue to a business discussion. Some technology developments to make data available for strategic business use that not long ago required months or even years to produce results now can be done in a matter of weeks.
We help organizations identify what data is essential for the business and provide mechanisms and tools to use data to their advantage effectively.
The availability of data and performance indicators is necessary for understanding and improving what the organization does, and for enabling companies to uncover opportunities, but is not sufficient.
To take advantage of the full potential of data, it is necessary to have not only the right data available, but also the competencies required to perform in-depth analysis and synthesis. It is also crucial to have a governance mechanism that will enable performance monitoring, decision making, and learning.
We help organizations build those competencies and develop the governance mechanism required for operational and strategic reviews.
