Business Strategy Solutions
“Sound strategy starts with having the right goal” – Michael Porter (Harvard Professor)
Helping clients identify and deliver upon tangible and quantifiable business goals is the most important objective in all of our strategy work. We understand that an organization’s ability to forecast and respond to complex industry trends is key to becoming a competitive leader in the marketplace. Our team challenges each client to achieve operational, management, and financial sophistication, so that they can leverage forward thinking and flexible vision to guide all channels of their organization.
As advisors our team ensures that a client’s execution tactics consistently aligns with their desired strategic business objectives. By fully understanding the broadest performance gaps in our client’s business operations, our consultants are able to infuse value driven solutions to guide an organization to success in each stage of their strategy deployment cycle.
The Strategy Practice supports clients in the following key areas:
When properly conducted, the strategic planning process creates ongoing value throughout a company’s functional business channels. In its early stages, management identifies their top business objectives detailing the necessary tactics to support these goals. As a routine component of annual forecasting, strategic plans provide an action oriented framework to which all business channels should align their execution. Since many organizations struggle with optimizing the value of this tool as a source of guidance in their operational decision making, our consultants work closely with internal teams to build practical, specific, and easily managed action strategic plans.
Kestada Strategy Consultants partners with clients to guide them through a series of coaching, workshops, interviews and group facilitation that result in building much needed internal commitment and cross channel buy-in. Our consultants guide clients through enterprise, division, and department level strategic planning efforts, leveraging our proven advisory tools and frameworks to meet the client’s overall objectives.

In today’s data driven business environment, companies are relying on the collection and analysis of quantitative and qualitative information. Whether an organization is seeking to better understand how to engage with their target audience, assessing a competitor’s operational strategies, or identifying new ways to improve their customer experience, companies must continue leveraging information that assists them in navigating the competitive pressures of their industries.
Benchmarking Assessments provide clients insight into the best practices of their industries. Strong market players understand where and when to replicate the strategies of their counterparts, but most importantly study this market activity to differentiate themselves from their competitors.

Ineffective project management can make the execution of any strategic plan very unproductive. Without appropriate management of an organization’s project efforts, execution of short term and long term plans can lead to undesirable results and wasted resources. Having strong leadership to guide this process is a fundamental component to the successful deployment of strategic action plans across all divisions of an organization.
