Agile Strategy

Agile Strategy
A dynamic, creative and rational strategy development process consisting of three sprints: a unique mechanism for generating and evaluating new ideas, profound testing of the most promising strategic options and the final strategic choice, as well as setting the agenda for management.

Analyzing the multidimensional space – Value Net – we provide the maximum coverage of opportunities for growth. We do not "boil the ocean" and do not bother the company's management with countless interviews, as it used to be done with the traditional approach. Our approach is unique. Its high structuredness provides determination and rapid assessment of 10–20 possible strategic options. Then, using accurately formulated strategic models, we choose the most promising ones from a long list of opportunities and develop them by applying more thorough testing.
At this stage, we conduct additional market research, assess the potential for value creation as well as associated risks, and the company's need for competencies and resources. As a result, unlike the traditional process, the implementation of Agile Strategy requires twice or thrice less time and offers a higher quality of the final strategic choice.

Digital Transformation
Digital Transformation does not intend to deal excessively with IT technologies, but rather with the direction of development – "how (alternatively) we will do our business tomorrow in order to become more competitive in this new rapidly growing digitizing world"
