Our advisory services focus on the challenges and opportunities presented by digitalization. We work from business strategy, through business development and digital enablement. We can help you from strategic advice to business transformation. We take on different roles at clients – advisory roles, project-based or interim – depending on what suits the specific challenge. Scroll down for our areas of our expertise and focus.
We help you set a business strategy that makes sense in the digital age. We work with you and your key people to define what your future success looks like, what you need to be successful, and your strategic agenda should be. The end product is a tangible strategy that you can act on, communicate to your organization, and that you can measure.
If you already have a set and communicated strategy we can help you adapt this strategy so that it makes sense in the digital age. This typically includes identifying a number of topics that are important from a digital perspective, and then working with your key people to understand how those topics should be amended to your strategy.
We take a detailed look at your new or existing product, and help you set a coherent strategy for how to grow quicker. With your business strategy as a starting point, with deep customer intel and market intelligence, we help you set a vision, roadmap and plan for growing your product. The deliverable is a tangible strategy that your organization can act on right away.
In the digital age, customer experience is key. Yet, many companies lack even the basics in their customer experience, causing customer to choose competitors. We can map and evaluate your customer experience – going from sales to customer service. This is usually done using customer journey mapping as a tool, and the result is better understanding of you customer journey, and how to improve it.
We help you to find new business opportunities and prioritize them. We start with inspiring your organization to set the bar of what’s possible in the digital age. Then we typically hold ideation workshops and work with your organization to define and prioritize the opportunities. The result is a portfolio of defined and prioritized initiatives ready to implement.
If you have an idea for a digital opportunity we can help you understand the viability of it. We help you define the idea, we do the research, talk to the customers, do the math, and set the plan. The result is a concrete case and a plan that your organization can work to implement. If you need help to implement, we can do that as well.
We can help you to take the lead of your digital business initiative. This is typically most useful when you have a new or stagnated initiative that needs quick and forceful momentum. We take charge, set the plan, and make that plan happen as fast as possible. We use our own resources, your organization, and external contractors if necessary to make sure that the full scope is delivered.
It’s always difficult to prioritize, especially when it comes to digital initiatives and opportunities. There is often plenty of opportunities to pursue, but initiative overload can be painful. Typically, top management find that they have a lot of initiatives going on, but nothing really seems to materialize. We help you decide what is important and how to refocus the portfolio.
When it comes to succeeding digitally, it’s all about creating the right foundations for success. The most successful organizations don’t just run isolated initiatives that happen to be successful, they create the right foundations to enable that success. This is what we call digital enablement.
Innovation needs a system, it doesn’t just happen out of the blue. The most innovative companies today combine strict structures for innovation, together with an open mindset that allows for rapid collaboration and iteration. We can help you build those structures and adapt them so that they work for your aspirations and your organization.
Data is the key asset in the digital age. Combining your data sources with the use of AI and machine-learning can lead to powerful new ways of doing business and delivering value to your customers. We can help you build the foundations for leveraging your data and to enable a data-driven mindset throughout your organization.
Agile methodologies can be a powerful way of structuring your organization to make sure you deliver the right value to your customers (internal or external) in an efficient manner. We’ve seen many great examples of where agile methodologies are used in a broader organizational and business sense, not only for product development.
A well-oiled product management structure is a foundational enabler for companies wanting to adapt to digital products or services. Often traditional companies who start do adapt to digital products or services lack these structures and the result is unclarity and internal power struggles. We help clients understand how to build them – either as a “virtual” organization or as an actual one.
For certain organizations it makes sense build an internal capability to manage their recurring strategy process and related work. This is typically necessary when you either have a large organization, or operate in an industry undergoing massive change. If done right, this capability can successfully handle many of the tasks otherwise assigned to external consultancies.
Portfolio management (or project/program management) can be a powerful internal capability, if done right. It can help organizations to continuously prioritize strategic initiatives, measure their outcome and send in resources when help is needed. It’s important to build this function right, to minimize administration and overhead and focus on what actually creates value.
