STRATEGIC UNDERSTANDING

At HCG, once we have established that our clients have the right people on the bus and in the right seats, we facilitate conversations that deliver a clear and dispassionate view of the emerging future and the evolving industry value chain. We revisit the founder’s vision and challenge the organizational DNA.

We consider one to three year horizons with respect to demand, customers, competitors and suppliers, along with the prevailing industry forces. The result is a reliable canvas on which to develop strategy.

Our forward-looking strategy framework
provides open-ended options to make sure
our clients get it right the every time.

STRATEGIC POSITIONING

At HCG we understand that strategic positioning is the very heart of the strategy process. We ask how the business is going to compete within the future industry value chain. We help clients make fundamental choices about which industries and markets to participate in, which products and services are to be offered, and to which customers.

Delicate decisions are made about positioning within a chosen product-market and the likely relationships with other players. Our clients don’t have to be the best in their industry, but they do need to hold a unique and profitable value proposition that creates sustainable advantages.

In the end, winning may involve staking out new white
spaces, revitalizing old trails, exiting businesses,
consolidation or slow continuous improvement.

STRATEGY IMPLEMENTATION

At HCG we identify the capability platforms and activities our clients need to succeed. Success relies heavily on the competency, experience and commitment of people.

Performance is strongly influenced by five elements: competencies | experience; culture, structure | systems; management and people. These form a client’s capability platform and this will largely determine its capacity to compete and out-perform its competitors.
