specialized in high-quality Board Support
involved in your decisions making
As ex-entrepreneurs and directors with years of executive management experience in larger companies we like to listen to you, understanding the dilemmas and challenges of your enterprise. We react quickly with a vision to discuss improvement, consequences involved and with a fresh approach for realizing change.
We call ourselves Business Negotiators, specialized in generalism and therefore go significantly further then traditional consultants. We do the negotiations for you both within and out of your organization. The focus is the realization of your assignment.
Business Negotiators are senior managers who have entrepreneurial skills and are used to deal with other people's money!
We are sure you CEO know WHAT you have to do, but are you DOING it and much more important is the way HOW you do it.
Strategium is different. We operate with common sense by experience. We have seen it all, we have done it; tremendous successes make us strong and we also know WHAT YOU DEFINITLY NOT SHOULD DO. This combination gives us confident and power, which qualities you can profite from (see Board Support).
We wrote and analized more then 200 Business Plans and Budgets and learned the best practice is to be achieved with a combination of top-down and bottum-up information flow break down.
Starting with the bottom, the people at the floor, the products or services that have to be delivered, sold and go up in the organization; ict, production, purchase, stock, logistics. Calculate cost prices, occupancy rates and purchase volumes. From here organizational improvements can be found.
After solving departmental issues we go top-down. What is the vision of the Board? What requirements do they have? Now and in the future? Are goals and objectives clear? What is the impact of the organizational change. Combine both approaches and you cetainly find new problem areas to be solved! Finalizing all with a consensus report with forcasts and budgets for each of the financial entities, finance, profits and balance structure.
Such reports take more time and costs more then you may expect, but it is certainly much more effective . In fact it is absolutely necessary.
