Driving a different approach to Strategy Consulting

M2 Driving a different approach to Strategy Consulting

Corporate Strategy

Our idea of good strategy is simple – clarity and executive alignment around a common vision of the future – one that is tested against the realities of the business and that the management team is committed to making a reality.

In our experience, we’ve seen too many elegant solutions developed by consultants with far better credentials than ourselves but which clients just simply cannot implement. Our intention is to help our clients reap the benefits of full implementation. With that in mind, and knowing that we have to work hand in hand with them to drive implementation, we tend to askew elegance for pragmatic solutions, theoretical ideas for practical outcomes.

Our clients are all testament to this approach – in few of our engagements have we been only engaged to write a strategy – in most, we work hand in hand to implement. With most of our client engagements spanning three to five years, our work ensures that benefit realization is quantified and measured.

Case Study: Malta International Airport plc

It all starts with establishing a shared vision and values for an organisation around which its executive management team comes together. This was where our engagement with Malta International Airport started – working with the executive team to establish a shared vision and a set of organisational values. Once settled on the strategic choices, bottom up teams translated MIA’s Strategy into a integrated Plan, which identified a comprehensive series of initiatives required to fully establish and deliver the strategy. Dubbed the Strategy Plan, it was implemented by a series of six cross-functional teams, each responsible for a cluster of initiatives. A key outcome was that within 2 ½ years  of setting out on this process, one of the key objectives was accomplished; MIA was awarded the Airports Council International Best Airport 2010 for the 1-5 million passengers category.
