As sector convergence sets industries and organisations on collision courses, both opportunities and threats present themselves in the shape of new markets, propositions, channels, technologies, and behaviours.
When organisations from different industries meet each other in the market for the first time, and when disruptive new entrants are added into the mix, the impact becomes more complex and less predictable, but usually leads to shortened lifespans of business models – creating significant risk and missed opportunities.
Meanwhile, the task of allocating and generating return on investment is becoming more demanding. Many organisations are facing the need to be more agile and efficient, with greater control and visibility over strategy and operations. This increases the importance of aligning financial, business and operating models.
Our Global Strategy Group’s (GSG) mission is to create value for clients. We strive to balance the hard edge of financial performance and investment returns with risk and innovation. We believe that because markets and sectors are in constant motion, the understanding of the dynamics between value creation and protection, and the parameters of innovation constantly need to be refreshed. We engage with market participants to develop points of view and evidence that challenge conventional thinking to harness the forces of disruption that are reshaping industries.
Our research and experience help drive our belief that significant opportunity exists for organisations that are bold, seize change and are prepared to rethink their portfolios of businesses, markets, propositions and brands, customers and channels.
GSG professionals help organisations and executive teams change, grow, adapt, shape and respond to disruptive forces. We support organisations in defining their ambition and developing innovative strategies that embed the agility and customer-centricity and operational excellence needed to thrive in dynamic markets. But, we don’t stop there – we work shoulder to shoulder with clients through implementation and help to deliver targeted results by accelerating momentum, locking down value and de-risking both decisions and actions.
We call this ‘Innovation to Results.’
