STRATEGY CONSULTING

We take an entrepreneurs approach to strategy consulting projects

Our management consulting team leverages our agile, 'startup' approach to solving our clients business challenges, helping them to identify new opportunities and building business cases.

We've worked with hundreds of start-ups and understand how to cost effectively, rapidly solve problems and deploy products, in a way most consultants don't and many large organisations struggle with. We apply this to working with FTSE-250 clients.

Recent client case studies:

A new strategy for a £2b retail business unit.

CORPORATE STRATEGY

Challenge:

Led a 4-month engagement to identify a new strategy for a £2b retail business unit as it moved from a period of high growth into a maturity phase.

What we did:

Identified the need to shift strategy from pure customer acquisition to driving value from (and for) existing customers.

 

How we did it:

The team analysed significant customer data (10m + customers) to understand their behaviour, spend and what actions were required to maintain profitability as penetration slowed. 

Preparing a tech business for investment.

INVESTMENT READINESS

Challenge:

We were engaged by the CEO of a fast growing technology business, with turnover of £12m, seeking private equity investment.

What we did:

We helped the business assess its current strengths, then built a business plan around the highest ROI areas for deploying investors' funds.

How we did it:
We reviewed and analysed financial data, online analytics, customer and other data, using our investment readiness methodology. We also conducted research on the market to quantify new opportunities. 

Prioritising investment for a co-working space.

OPERATING MODEL

Challenge:

A growing creator space, restaurant and events facility wanted to identify where to make investments in staffing and facilities to maximise return. 

What we did:

We built an operating model and helped the business avoid costly investments in facilities that were unable to generate a significant return.

 

How we did it:

We reviewed their current business model, operating costs, and finances. Ultimately, we built a utilisation rate model for each of their facilities and helped understand where investment was warranted and where it wasn't.
