Superior profits come from aligning strategy, resources
and culture. HCG offers financial analysis, cultural change and
organizational development.

CLOSING THE GAPS

We ensure success by analyzing our client’s financials and people, so the client’s ‘tail does not wag the dog’. We examine the resource implications of strategy shifts.

We close the gaps between the client’s existing and future paradigms, to re-align their culture with their future strategy.

In additional to ROI, we examine gross margins,
asset turns, debt-to-equity, expense-to-sales,
solvency and liquidity to ensure the financial well
being of our clients as they move forward.

CULTURAL ANALYSIS

In terms of people, we draw of the expertise of Trompenaars and Hampden-Turner, who have spent 20 years researching the preferences and values of people in ten of thousand business cultures around the world. Each culture has its own way of thinking, its own values and beliefs and its own preferences, all of which can be mapped on seven dimensions.

At HCG we apply this model to assess cultural health and support our clients to learn more about their people, prevent misunderstandings and enjoy powerful working relationships.

At HCG we work with regional and global businesses. We understand both the challenges and opportunities cross continental businesses face and need to embrace.

IMPLMENTING GLOBAL STRATEGY

Where client operations are based across multiple continents, vital information and just as importantly, trust can be lost in translation. Often managers have little understanding of how local culture impacts global interaction.

HCG uses the Eight Scales Culture Map research of Erin Meyer to deliver insights for working effectively and sensitively with one’s counterparts in the new global marketplace and dealing with the cross-cultural complexities that affect business performance.
