Corporate Strategy is complex (see What is Corporate Strategy? for a deeper look at why). Goals have to be defined, the actions required to achieve those goals understood, and the resource and tools to implement them provisioned and managed through to successful implementation. Competing forces within businesses necessarily have different views differences in the actions and resources required to achieve goals carefully balanced.
Using the right tools to define goals and understand how they interact at the industry, client, business unit, and corporate resource level can help, as can understanding how to balance the different needs of corporate actors. All of these need to be considered when defining a strategy, as well as the time to which the strategy relates, for instance: short-term (e.g. six months), medium-term (e.g. 1-2 years), or long-term (e.g. 5-10 years).
Once a strategy is defined, we help clients to determine the best corporate structure to support it, both from an implementation and an on-going operational perspective.
