Strategy as a driver of real change and effect
Strategic capability is a key driver of long-term performance
The world has become more dynamic, complex, and globally connected, and organisations are becoming more and more knowledge-intensive. This makes strategic capability a key driver of long-term performance and value creation.
Business Model Innovation
Short-term competitive advantage is created by exploiting existing business models. However, in the long term, all markets mature, competition intensifies and turbulence increases. Consequently, new sources of growth must be explored, and fresh answers to enduring success must be found.
Problems can be complicated – solutions cannot
We are only capable of processing a small fraction of the information we are constantly bombarded with.
Strategy as Transformation
When a butterfly flaps its wings in Denmark, the ultimate consequence may be that it triggers a hurricane in the Caribbean months later. This was one of the more spectacular conclusions that followed in the wake of the discovery that complex systems, such as the atmosphere, are extremely sensitive to the slightest change in the system’s initial conditions.
Strategy is not complex. The best strategies are simple because of their insightful and clearly articulated choices about the future. But making choices and executing the strategy is hard.
Exploiting new opportunities for growth requires deep customer insights and a fresh look at the components of your business model. Tweaking existing products and services will merely bring you incremental returns, while winning growth strategies are powered by the will to rethink business models.
By aligning your company’s organisational design with its strategic intent, your management team will be better equipped to achieve targets and help push the company forward to meet new challenges.
