A clear vision and a well-defined strategy are essential to the development and longevity of any business, in order to set a clear direction and objectives for the entire organization.
In a dynamic and uncertain environment, this will allow the company to ensure that the critical success factors are well under control and that individuals at all levels understand their role and their contribution to the results of the organization.
The definition of a differentiating strategy implies strong focus on core competitive advantages and clear choices on what the organization must do to ensure the development and the profitability of the company in its market, but also on what it does not want to do to avoid a dilution of efforts and resources on non-essential activities.
Whatever the direction and strategy chosen, a flawless implementation and rigorous execution are fundamental to the success of the strategy.

In business environment, status-quo is not an option as customer needs are constantly evolving and competition is not stand still.

Beyond organic growth, a M&A operation may be necessary to ensure the development of the company and ensure profitable growth is a competitive market. Along the same lines, forging a strategic alliance with a partner can bring value to the company, its shareholders and its customers.
These M&A activities are aimed at strengthening the competitiveness of the company and enabling the pursuit of its strategic objectives.
The justification, the preparation and the execution of these operations, their legal and financial dimension are complex steps that must be carried out with discipline, before focusing on the integration of new activities which will be critical to the success of the overall M&A project and future business results.

The value chain analysis is a critical step in the development of the company’s strategy as it provides a clear understanding of value creation opportunities through potential competitive advantages and to identify the risks that must be mitigated to ensure business continuity.
With a comprehensive analysis of the company’s value chain, it is possible to identify activities that create value, those that have a significant impact in terms of cost or quality and that represent an advantage over the competition. This activity can thus form the basis for the development of a competitive advantage that will be to the success of the enterprise and ability to achieve its strategic objectives.
The analysis of the value chain must also help identify the risks the company is exposed to, either at the operational level e.g., staff, supply chain, production capacity, cyber-security, etc. or at the commercial (compliance, etc.), economic or financial level. The assessment of these risks and the implementation of a robust risk mitigation plan will be critical to ensure business continuity in all circumstances and warrant the future results of the company.
