Corporate-Level
Planning

In corporate-level planning, we help senior executives organize and execute a process to decide or change make-up of portfolio (e.g. in which businesses to compete), set targets, allocate resources and coordinate activities across business-unit portfolio.

Business-Unit
Planning

In business-unit planning, we support the divisional head (CEO, President or GM) and their team to develop strategy within three areas:
  1. Growth,
  2. Competitiveness, +
  3. Operational Effectiveness.
Our team brings fresh perspective and entrepreneurial passion to strategy development and a comprehensive planning framework customized to the client’s unique situation. Our approach considers three strategic planning process components:
Vision + Goal Development
Long-Range Planning, (LRP)
Annual Operating Plan (AOP)
