Did you say strategy consulting?
Strategy consulting consists of the intervention of one or more consultants to define the medium and long term objectives of the company, sometimes questioning the existing business model. It sets a new course.
What are the particularities of a strategy consulting mission?
Strategy consulting is generally aimed at senior management and corporate officers.
Like any consulting activity, strategy consulting aims to analyze an existing situation and then present a report with an action plan or various advice. In no ways does it implement this plan in an operational manner, unlike the interim management.
Thus the missions are relatively short. The difference between ‘management consulting’ and ‘strategy consulting’ lies in the duration, on average from 3 to 6 months for the first one, and from 6 to 9 months for the second one. Strategy consulting is also of a higher order as it is aimed at the CEO.
Most often, they concern expertise that the company lacks. For example, to challenge its business model, to digitalize the company, or to know how to define an industrial strategy.
Who is strategy consulting for?
Strategy consulting is aimed at all types of companies, from SMEs to large corporations. Strategy consulting firms are either generalists or specialized by sector of activity or by business area. For example, we find marketing strategy consulting firms, or consulting firms in services, hotel and tourism professions such as MKG Consulting.
