Strategy consulting is a practice that typically serves senior management in organizations, helping them to take objectively high-level decisions that are based on in-depth professional knowledge and analysis. Strategy consulting firms serve all industries and work with both private and public organizations to handle a variety of business and organizational challenges and opportunities.
Strategy consulting – who needs it and when?
The most prominent advantage strategy consulting firms bring to the table is focus. While business managers are often busy in leading the organization and dealing with day to day operations, strategy consulting firms are focused entirely on handling the company’s strategic challenges and opportunities. While making sure that all possible solutions have been explored, strategy consulting firms will formulate essential recommendations for sustaining the company while strengthening its positioning in the future.
For example, a factory that suffers from continuous stagnation as a result of introduction of new technologies and increasing competition, will perhaps consider streamlining processes and activity and selling or closing down less profitable operations.
At sensitive times, it is recommended for company managers and leaders to use the services of a strategy consulting firm, as they are required to focus on the day to day business activity while make sure that every strategic decision they take, was taken in an informed manner.
Strategy consulting process is a refreshing mindset for managers, as during a focused process of 3-6 months, the organization will be exposed to a variety of solutions, taken from different disciplines, which they would not have been otherwise considered, even though their impact over the organization is significant. Furthermore, strategy consulting process emphasizes combinatorial thinking that allows organizations to apply innovation into problem solving. Thus, with the support of strategy consulting firm, organizations are able to find unexpected solutions that will enable the company’s development to the desired directions.
