Strategy Development & Planning
Strategy development is key to business success: a common factor in all successful businesses is they have both a clear strategy and a process to ensure that strategy is implemented. The very real challenges faced by businesses lead senior management teams to realise they require an outside perspective to guide them in a review of their strategy – to challenge the status quo and to help them “think the unthinkable”.
Development of Senior Leadership Teams
Even the best strategy is only as good as the team responsible for its development and implementation. For high growth companies, the challenges facing the senior leadership team are often exacerbated by the speed of change and the need for the business to be both innovative and disruptive. The ultimate goal is to enable your leaders to become a “high performance team”
Developing and implementing an effective high growth strategy requires good knowledge of the market in which the company operates. High growth companies often operate in markets where competitors are also innovating and creating their own disruption, therefore it is especially helpful to have an unbiased view of the market. Without accurate market research it is very easy for companies to direct investment into less profitable, and less useful, areas of the business.
High growth companies will almost always need to raise external finance at some stage, and the acquisition of another business can be a very effective part of a high-growth strategy. In addition a lack of experience of business owners when selling all or part of their business as their Exit Strategy, can lead to expensive mistakes being made. The right experience and support is crucial.
Running a high growth business should be a challenging and exciting experience. But the pace of activity in high growth companies sometimes means the leadership team overlooks the importance of appropriate corporate governance (especially the need for an effective Board of Directors). We believe that effective corporate governance is a key enabler of business success, so we work with companies of all sizes to ensure they have appropriate governance in place.
