Growth Fundamentals: Many companies design growth strategies focused on buying busineses that they believe are complimentary, but in fact create huge cost burdens on the centre, perceived synergies are never realised, and in most cases ultimately compete with each other for resources. We define strategies that focus on your core business and identify opportunities to leverage the underlying resources such as distribution networks or suppliers to enter new markets or develop cross-sell opportunities - rather than building a portfolio of assets that ultimately have similar outputs. We can also undertake a strategic review of your portfolio using an analytical approach to understand where the opportunities for growth are which may be have been overlooked or disregarded perhaps in a certain geography or industry sector.
