How a holistic reorientation can make your company fit for the future
Far-reaching and often painful restructuring processes have been the harsh realities of corporate life in recent years. Contented smiles are nevertheless conspicuously absent from the majority of board rooms. A one-sided focus on cutting costs and creating lean organizations has caused many companies to eat into their substance and destroyed their strategic flexibility. Cost-cutting and efficiency-boosting programs born of ill-considered actionism rarely prepare the ground for fresh growth that is driven by innovation. If you want your company to be one of the market movers of the future, isolated repairs and optimization efforts will not get the job done. On the contrary, companies need to rebuild their business systems systematically.
The Roland Berger approach focuses on six levers to achieve sustainable corporate transformation:
Our Roland Berger three step transformation approach consists of:
Phase I – Developing the target business strategy:
A coherent corporate strategy derived from a clear corporate vision sets the strategic direction and stakes out the framework within which transformation can and must take place.
Phase II – Implementing the target business strategy:
The vision and strategic orientation are now fleshed out in a concrete, detailed business model and made ready for implementation.
Phase III – Rolling out the transformation:
Sustainable change can only be effected with the cooperation of the work force. This in turn necessitates a comprehensive change management process. The latter contains such aspects as intensive communication, workshops to cascade knowledge down through the company, and training to empower and enable the work force.
