We propose to our clients an end-to-end support during their strategic exercises: strategic diagnostic, strategic planning and strategy implementation.
The implementation of strategic plans often requires the gathering of reliable and sufficiently detailed decision-making elements related to targeted markets, and resources to be deployed. In order to meet this need, we carry out comprehensive sectoral studies as well as opportunity studies, whether it is for business development projects (new products, new activities, new markets) or cost reduction initiatives (pooling of Human, IT or logistical resources, clustering of activities, outsourcing, etc.).
Our strategic planning services include:
Study of corporate positioning on the value chain: integration level, added value break-down over key subindustries, value retained, stakeholder’s power analysis, barriers to vertical integration, etc.
Competitive landscape: market share, key players’ profitability, key competitors’ vertical integration level, business model, pricing policies, regulatory constraints, industry medium long-term strategic concerns, etc.
