Developing and implementing breakthrough Strategies for profitable Growth and competitive Advantage
In turbulent markets, a superior business strategy is the key to long-term success. Cost cutting and process optimization are necessary, but they are not sufficient for a company to remain competitive in the long term.
A strategy is a plan to achieve ambitious growth goals by providing better customer value than the competition. Successful strategies are characterized by a clear focus on attractive markets and specific offerings with unique value propositions.
Current strategic challenges include low-price competitors threatening established industry players, Western companies entering high-growth emerging markets and the fast technological progress.
The examples of companies like Neckermann, Nokia und Kodak show that even highly-successful organizations can fail if they don´t adapt to changing circumstances quickly enough. Companies which don´t change will die!
