The Foundations of Good Strategy
No matter how good a strategy, if it isn’t implemented effectively it will fail to realise the anticipated benefits. Equally if the strategy isn’t properly considered in the first place no matter how good the implementation it too will fail to achieve the desired outcomes. The first step in effective strategy development must therefore be thorough integrated and open analysis of the strategic situation.
Ignetica personnel have a proven track record in this field. Based on the in-depth understanding we have been able to gain through this processes we have repeatedly be able to identify major opportunities for strategic, competitive, operational and bottom line performance improvement which conventional thinking failed to identify. In particular in a recent example (see case studies) in an apparently over-crowded, declining margin business we were able to identify an under-served, high value niche. And through in-depth analysis of its business operations, capabilities and value activities, we were able to develop a new business model with 30% lower cost to exploit this market opportunity.
Our Analysis Services can be used either as the starting point for a full strategy review programme, or they may be used as standalone activities for feasibility studies, investment appraisals, or simply greater understanding of a particular problem.
We have five core Analysis & Feasibility Services and can adapt these as needed for most situations.
