In these volatile times and ever-changing market environments, strategic vision and clear game plan is more important than ever. Kgadi works with business leaders and key stakeholders to facilitate and map out a forward-looking strategic plan that will enable them to gain sustainable competitive advantage.
The most powerful strategies arise from game-changing insights – of customers, markets, competitors, regulators, and industries. It creates advantages by anticipating the actions and reactions of others, by exploiting the leverage inherent in concentrating effort on a pivotal or decisive aspect of the situation, and by creating policies and actions that are coherent, each building on the other rather than cancelling one another out.
Areas we deliver Strategy in:
(i) Corporate Strategy
Creating value across different businesses (or divisions) isn’t solely a matter of chasing the highest returns. It is also about understanding your company’s strengths and how they can make a difference in where you choose to invest. An organization of complementary assets and well-choreographed capabilities is in a better position to deliver consistently superior performance over time.
A key challenge, however, is that the underlying theories – good value investments for growth, smart resource allocation, portfolio synergies and performance improvements – tend to bump up against the realities of organizational behavior. As a result, this doesn’t only require you to make difficult choices about where to focus, but also require you to design the operating models, processes and capabilities that make it possible to deliver value beyond the sum of the collective businesses.
How We Can Help
We will help you decide on your corporate goals and individual businesses (or divisions) to focus on that will allow you to meet your strategic objectives and help the company succeed as a whole.
We will work with you to:
(ii) Growth Strategy
Growing a business yields many benefits. It can attract talent, provide economies of scale, reward investors and attract some.
But not all types of growth pay off. Some can actually destroy value, as when an acquisition or merger fails or when management spends more than it should on a given initiative, an initiative that results in total failure. Other growth trajectories are unsustainable.
We can help you uncover good growth opportunities in a reliable and systematic way.
We will work with you to:
(iii) Business Transformation
Changes to how organisations run their operations intensify as the marketplace changes and become increasingly competitive. There are many common “events” that most often drive the need for developing, evaluating or modifying the operating model of the organisation, these include:
In times of crisis and in times of economic slowdown, not everybody fares the same. Those organizations that turn to Transformation as a way to unlock value or adapt to disruption and make the shifts to an operating model which combines operations capabilities that can create value, lower costs, and improve customer experience, giving organizations an edge in a highly competitive landscape, are the ones that do well.
So, if you’re concerned about the economic outlook, and if you get challenging questions from your board about the resilience of your organization’s performance, how do you best respond? It turns out that in times of crisis and in times of economic slowdown, not everybody fares the same. Those organizations that turn to Transformation as a way to unlock value or adapt to disruption and make the shifts to an operating model which combines operations capabilities that can create value, lower costs, and improve customer experience, giving organizations an edge in a highly competitive landscape, are the ones that do well.
