the gg journey

Our journey of discovery comprises four stages:

1. Analysis and Routemapping

This component deploys a range of unique and distinctive tools to provide three key deliverables:

  • An analysis of the key drivers in the business.
  • A performance improvement programme and tactical routemap.
  • An outline strategic routemap for addressing the future.

Developing sustainable competitive advantage, which is critical to securing a leadership position in the marketplace, starts with maximising current opportunities to improve performance. During recessionary times the focus needs to switch to tactical responses in order to lay the foundation for a new strategy.

2a. Exploiting the Strategic Routemap

Routemapping is a tool for plotting a course through the choice of options that organisations face when addressing the future. The objective is to win new reach and grip in the marketplace, creating the platform for enhanced market share. The main elements of strategic routemapping are:

  • Creating new differentiation for products and services.
  • Positioning resources to gain new competitive advantage.
  • Aligning the organisation and its talent to deliver uncompromised service performance and to meet the objectives of a redefined strategic mission.

This component of the programme is very much like campaign planning and includes many of the most demanding challenges faced by leaders.

2b. Exploiting the Tactical Routemap

This creates the platform for improved productivity and liquidity. The main elements of strategic routemapping are:

  • Realising surplus fixed assets.
  • Reshaping the terms of trade for customers.
  • Eliminating "noise" and waste in operations.

This component of the programme is very much like housekeeping.

3. Creating a Winning Culture

Culture in an organisation can be both deep-rooted and intangible. While it is difficult to define, culture often proves to be the main brake on change rather than a critical driver.

This component of the programme will deliver:

  • A rating of management performance and a classification of organisational units by affinity grouping.
  • An assessment of the replacement and succession potential of the organisation, with gaps and vulnerabilities identified, as a springboard for improvement.
  • A management development programme to improve the performance of staff in their roles and to mitigate inadequate provisions for future challenges.

4. Ongoing Support

All companies face unexpected situations. We offer a support service to help you tackle these that provides continuity during and after a  gg management consulting engagement. Our objective is to be available when needed to resolve business problems.

The combination of the skills, expertise and knowledge of the gg team and the distinctive analytical problem-solving models it uses is a dynamic formula for successful strategic development and change management in complex corporate environments. One of the most valuable investments any organisation can make, especially in the current economic downturn, is to engage a gg team to resolve specific problems that are challenging your business. This is the first step in developing new strategic positioning and in establishing greater competitive advantage.
