EVEN SIMPLE ACTIONS REQUIRE A GOOD STRATEGY.

Making fact and assumption-based decisions matters. We use our business experience with data science and cutting-edge analytic tools to extend the value of your existing and new knowledge and data. Long story short, we use senior experience and (near) extraterrestrial technologies to give your business the nudge it needs.

YOU HAD ME AT "GOOD STRATEGY".

HELLO,

We’re a boutique strategic planning and analytics advisory firm with 45 staff based in offices in Geneva, London, New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco.

We start with your existing strategy and work with you to leverage and align your existing business capabilities. As a result you improve strategy implementation.

All of us are senior industry executives with extensive leadership experience who chose to become advisors. Consumer products, retail, banking, manufacturing/advanced technology, specialty chemicals or biotechnology? We’ve got it!

We implement lasting solutions for you on topics like strategy implementation, leading change, business portfolio management, growth and value creation, capability building, growing talent and shifting culture.

Nice to meet you. How can we help?

INDUSTRIES

B2B

Helping your customer create new sources of growth is complex enough. To shift from just being a supplier to understanding your customer’s value chain, as well as the customer of your customer, requires substantial skill and foresight.

Biotechnology & Speciality chemistry

Harnessing the power of nature is creating some amazing breakthroughs in science and technology. Almost everyindustry is affected by natural ingredients and new materials set to replace (petro-) chemicals and/or enable new treatments not in existence today.

Non-profit

“If we can start to understand what people really want, we can change communities and we can change whole nations.” – Melinda & Bill Gates, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Wealth Management & Fintech

In an industry under immense pressure from regulators, customers and shareholderes, many private banks are looking hard at cost and aum. However, keeping the customer in mind is key to rebuild trust and shared value. If not, different fintech players will continue to disintermediate banks from their customers.

Health

The health care industry is one of competing interests. Technological advancements in medical care, treatment techniques and prevention make much more possible. But exploding costs threaten advancement, affordability and eventually the industry’s health. How do you create more value at lower costs?

Travel

The internet has completely transformed the travel industry. Niche travel agents and the many travel related platforms are all competing for attention, driving prices down for the eventual travel provider. Creating value is a competitive necessity.

Manufacturing & Advanced Technology

Technology and the internet of things is changing the value chain faster than ever. Are you able to keep up?

Retail

Despite the massive investment in technology, retail seems to be either online or physical. Very few excel at both at the same time. The consumer of today doesn’t care and seems to be in control.

Consumer goods & luxury

Consumer taste, product trends and brand loyalty are in constant flux. Brands are scrutinized and consumers expect them to set an example and make a positive change.

Forestry & Agriculture

The effects of climate change, customer & consumer preferences, distribution intermediaries and commodity trading are all driving the price of natural assets.

Brain disruption is coming.

Is your company ready for it?

TESTIMONIAL

“… Of all the strategy processes I have been involved with in my career, this experience with StrategyPod was by far the best experience… The transparent and inclusive engagement with our senior leaders, working through strategic choices in detail and using scenario planning to decide on our strategic ambition and strategic plan, has given us an actionable long-term plan…

… the Strat Align process and technology centralizes all the knowldge we have acquired in the strategy process for ongoing use and documents our assumptions. This allows us to focus on sharply executing our strategic plan, building the capabilities we must develop, and aticipating “major changes” when comparing our actual performance with the short-, mid- and long-term milestones to be delivered. This is how we now monitor and manage our operational execution as well as our strategic progress.

This experience with StrategyPod has worked so much better than strategy exercises we did in the past and I already look forward to a future engagement with StrategyPod…”
