Business Consulting Approach
98Degrees Strategic Management Services, we approach our advisory mandate with an understanding that the very principles we apply in solving business (challenges, translating these into tangible and robust solution-matrix projects), must be measurable and reflected in the way we reach the result, achieve impact and deliver value. Simply put, it’s all about value and that’s what we stake our reputation on.
This “value-impact-outcome” ethic resonates at the very heart of our business consulting model and core competencies:
We excel at understanding the “big picture of success” and conceiving multi-dimensional strategy, conceptualising target benefits and solutions and then planning and delivering the outcome. We aim to “invent the future” rather than focussing on “fixing the past” and deliver holistic rather than isolated solutions.
Whilst our thinking is strategic, our execution is fastidious, pragmatic and results focussed. We typically set the pace around transformation and often find our clients need time to adjust to the momentum that change can force. The results however soon lead to newfound motivation and swift baton changing as clients soon take on control of the process.
We partner with our clients through the change lifecycle, instilling an outcomes focus amongst management, refining their leadership skills and preparing them for critical implementation challenges. We balance strategic with operational thinking, conceptualism with pragmatism.
An initial, no-charge consulting service is held to allow the key stakeholders to engage, discuss and assess the business need, orientate the team around the problem areas and interpret the opportunities. Our 7-Stage Process™ methodology is based on the critically-acclaimed book written by Carl Gould. This method has helped thousands of businesses increase their sales, create better lead generation systems, and control their costs.
We can help you too! During your analysis, we can identify which stage you are in currently, and which stage you wish to grow to.
These sessions can include discussion around anything from the broad picture and top-line status-quo matters right through to very specific issues that the business may be facing. A situational understanding is captured for future drill-down mapping.
Discussion around work scoping and timings are arranged and the process is initiated. Schedule your analysis today!
