Developing and successfully implementing sustainable strategies
Success is no coincidence. A successful transformation requires the right strategy. The strategy must be consistently aligned with future markets and requirements. It provides the framework and defines the goals for the transformation. This is the only way to ensure that the focus is on the really important success factors.
However, the performance of the company is reflected in the actual implementation of the strategic goals. The problems are often underestimated and the companies reach their limits, so that existing earnings potential can only be realized to a limited extent. The view of what is feasible and a professional implementation with active involvement of the employees are decisive factors for a successful transformation.
We develop individual approaches together. Let’s get on the road!
For us, strategy is not a theoretical concept. Transformation and implementation are essential to the entire strategy process.
We know the structures and processes in the company as well as the stumbling blocks in the implementation. We start where it is necessary and brings the greatest benefit to the company. We change the perspective, show ways, develop a roadmap together with you and also actively support you (if required) in the implementation.
At the latest with digitalization, companies are facing dynamically growing market changes and the corona pandemic has intensified this trend. A review and adjustment of the business model is therefore more important than ever. With our strategy check, we not only examine a business model for current requirements, but also focus on its future viability.
A prerequisite for successful transformation is a strategy concept that is aligned with future markets and requirements. This defines the company’s orientation and determines the priorities and goals that form the framework for the necessary structural and organizational adjustments. Due to the dynamic changes in the market, strategy development is not to be understood as a one-off process – it is reviewed and adjusted on an ongoing basis.
The focus is on the assessment of future markets and the formation of suitable strategic business areas with which differentiation from the competition can be achieved. We identify the key influencing and success factors and point out opportunities and risks for the respective markets. On this basis, necessary capabilities can be determined and a sustainable strategy with a target business model can be developed.
A transformation succeeds when not only the strategic goals but also the concrete implementation steps are defined and a suitable implementation management is set up. We rely on professional roadmapping to show you individual solutions and paths.
IT is becoming the central success but also risk factor of almost all companies and administrations.
The importance of IT is growing – the role of IT in companies is undergoing a paradigm shift. Hardly any company can be sustained today without a functioning IT. New challenges, such as end-to-end mobility or predictive maintenance, must be tackled. And these are just a few examples of digitization effects that will have to be made possible by the company’s IT in the future.
There is pressure to act in many companies and administrations
In many companies, the IT infrastructure is no longer up to date. This is usually caused by investments that were not made or were only aimed at short-term effects. This often results in a heterogeneous IT application landscape with many organically grown, weakly integrated special solutions.
As a result, error-proneness and also maintenance costs have increased and progress on the business process support side has almost come to a standstill.
A successful transformation requires not only reliable analysis and evaluation, but also the development of clear and appropriate target scenarios. Our approach uses all factors relevant to IT to track down the need for action in terms of IT and identifies opportunities to increase effectiveness and efficiency.
Together with all parties involved, we develop the future position of IT and an associated master plan that presents concrete projects with benefits, costs, risks and mutual dependencies. In addition to projects to support value-adding processes, this usually also includes projects for the consolidation, standardization and virtualization of IT, for the preparation of make-or-buy decisions and for IT architecture management. If required, we also accompany you through the most difficult stage: implementation.
Digitization creates winners and losers: new production processes, changes in market logic, and a shift in customer behaviour are upsetting proven business models. At the same time, products and processes are emerging that open up unexpected opportunities for companies. If you want to profit from this process instead of being overwhelmed by it, you have to drive it forward in-house.
With our holistic, modular consulting approach, we help you align your company with the new challenges and seize the opportunities of digitization. The starting point is a cross-divisional analysis of where you stand and where it pays to act.
Crisis mode on – Paradigm shift in corporate governance.
How to create resilient structures?
Companies have been facing increasing crisis situations for years. It is therefore important to build resilient structures in order to remain capable of acting in the context of crises. In this context, “resilience” must not only be understood as agile adaptability, but must also be linked to robustness. Only with resilient structures can unexpected disruptions and shocks be absorbed.
With our resilience check, we focus on your relevant necessary resources and systematically assess their risks, need for action and possible measures to secure access and minimise risks. In this way, the analysis enables the clear identification of your essential resources and unambiguous naming of probable risks using uniform categories.
