Dramatically improve your performance

Strategy execution, strategy management, strategy implementation: whatever you call it, there is likely to be a gap between your strategy – what you say you need to do to create value – and what everyone in your organisation is actually doing. We believe effective strategy execution gives you a strong, sustainable advantage.

We teach a new way to manage strategy, empowering you to carry out your strategies more effectively all the time. We focus on sharing knowledge and best practice from thousands of clients around the world.

Our strategy consulting practice builds on the thought-leadership legacy of Drs Robert Kaplan and David Norton, creators of the Balanced Scorecard. What sets us apart is our extensive knowledge that goes far beyond implementing a strategy management system.

We help our clients to embrace change management, leadership, governance and innovation for effective strategy execution.

Strategy Management

Consistently outperform your peers with a formal strategy management process.

Even the best strategy is ineffective if it is not well executed. This is why we focus on strategy management. Managing strategy is managing change, and a disciplined approach to this can create measurable, lasting impact.

An effective strategy management system:

  • Ensures that all employees understand their role in achieving the strategy and can act decisively to add value
  • Focuses attention on the few critical areas that are most vital for achieving your strategy, so you can target limited resources for optimal impact
  • Clearly communicates what is needed to close the gap between where your organisation is and where you want to be – breaking that gap into meaningful, manageable parts

We lead organisations through the process of building a strategy management system. We then help you sustain that system into the future, through knowledge transfer and insightful training.

Strategy Design

Your strategy should be both meaningful and actionable.

The most successful strategies are those that are truly meaningful to the people carrying them out. A strategy has to be firmly rooted in your mission and values to unite employees under a common goal. At the same time, it needs to have a robust relationship with reality, and be created with execution in mind. It must be broken down into actionable parts. If not, it is only wishful thinking.

We work with you to develop a rich, detailed strategy that will win over hearts and minds, while also laying out a clear path for delivery. Through techniques like scenario planning and war gaming, we help you understand how stakeholders will respond to potential actions and where to focus resources.

Leadership and Change

Strong leadership and change management is vital.

All leaders have unique challenges that they need to overcome to successfully deliver their organisation’s strategy. Our tailored approach to leadership and change focuses on the specific factors that will help your organisation succeed.

We work closely with clients, including individual and team coaching at multiple levels. This lets us identify leadership constraints and to facilitate a smoother, more effective execution of strategy.


Be bold and innovate to achieve a new level of impact.

Is structured innovation part of your strategy to deliver value to customers and stakeholders in a new way? Our research shows that product and process innovation, where most organisations focus their resources, leads to diminishing returns over time.

We help clients uncover opportunities through business model innovation and transforming the customer experience. Immerse a wide range of stakeholders in your process to ultimately deliver a compelling, differentiated value proposition – while reducing cost and risk.

Initiative Realizationâ„¢

Shift from an installation to a results mindset.

Change doesn’t simply happen when an initiative is completed. We guide you through the parts of initiative management that are often ignored: intent management, risk and change management, communications, adoption, training, and knowledge transfer.

By approaching strategic initiatives with a full understanding of their link to strategy and a focus on the desired result – not the go-live date – you are far more likely to succeed.

We work with your initiative teams to implement new business processes and systems, and embed them throughout your organisation.

Our expertise includes these initiative areas:

  • Financial Transformation
  • Human Capital Performance and HR Process Redesign
  • ERP
  • Business Intelligence
  • Content Management
  • Network and Data Centre Optimisation

Risk and Governance

Manage your strategic risk, as well as your compliance.

A well-governed, risk-managed organisation delivers sustained value for its stakeholders. It’s vital to consider risk when developing strategies, so you can anticipate, manage and mitigate potential strategic risks.

We work with clients to develop practical, tailored, and integrated approaches to governance and risk management, explicitly linked to strategy execution.
