    Getting to know Strategy&, PwC’s strategy consulting team

    Strategy is about deciding on where to go and making choices on how to get there. These choices often require not only decisions on where to focus but also decisions on where not to focus – bold, pragmatic and not often easy moves, I would say, requiring time, money and people engagement.

    I am sometimes asked what Strategy& is and how it is related to PwC. The answer is simple. Strategy& is the strategy consulting practice of a wider PwC network. Our collaboration with the wider PwC network results in real value to our clients: We are able to help our clients make those tough choices and formulate an executable strategy which can deliver true differentiation and which is practical enough to be executed effectively.

    Let me walk you through the topics where our Strategy& team can support:

    1. Creating a capability-driven strategy which enables your organisation to win in the market with your distinctive capabilities. Here we help our clients with our unique Capability-driven strategy + Growth framework
    2. Business transformation which enables your organisation to focus on differentiating capabilities, aligning your cost structure accordingly and reorganising for growth. Here we help our clients with our unique Fit for Growth methodology
    3. Creating a digital strategy and building the right digital capabilities to drive results
    4. Deals,value creation, commercial due diligence, exit strategy and vendor due diligence
