Our management consulting team are focused on delivering superior value to clients. We provide the agility, consistency and personal attention of a local partner while providing the reach and knowledge assets of an international organisation.
We have replaced the typical traditional consulting hierarchy with a flat organisational structure with partnerships across a network of complementary businesses. Our consultants provide clients with thought leadership, while maintaining the ability to roll up their sleeves and drive pragmatic solutions for critical initiatives.
Companies today face an ever-changing landscape of macroeconomic realities, industry trends and internal challenges. They are forced to fundamentally rethink their corporate, business unit and growth strategies as well as their operating models in order to better align with the changing world and capitalise on value-generating opportunities.
Betapoint assists clients with their corporate strategy by collaboratively developing the overall scope and direction of their company, and the way in which its various business operations should work together to achieve the company goals. Together, using dynamic tools and methodologies, we help clients create pragmatic strategic plans that are focused on bottom-line results.
Business unit strategy entails knowing what business you are in, understanding the current and future sources of competitive advantage in that business, and then defining a plan to capture and sustain an unassailable relative advantage over competitors. Several questions are central to the development of a business unit strategy:
- How well are we positioned in relation to competitors?
- What can we do to enhance our relative advantage?
- What can we learn from customers today to better compete tomorrow?
- What specific moves will position us for greater success?
- Can our current business model take us into the future?
At Betapoint we help clients to steer their business to full economic potential, be it through an annual planning process, a transformation effort or full turnaround. Together with your team, we can help create a proprietary set of actions that will enable you to serve your customers better than your competition.
Our operating model strategy focuses on articulating and defining the way that a business goes to market. We gather input from stakeholders and ensure executive alignment on strategic priorities. The outcome is a pragmatic roadmap for achieving strategic business objectives.
Our operating model restructuring services help clients to realign organisational capabilities - related to people, processes and technology - to an enterprise-wide strategic vision, thus transforming operational performance. Our collaborative approach helps you to anticipate industry trends and to create business models that:
- overcome internal tensions
- are resilient to competitive pressure
- are responsive to market opportunities.
Many traditional performance management systems fall short of advancing strategy or driving value creation. At Betapoint we take an integrated approach to performance management. We help organisations improve their ability to analyse a wide range of financial, operational, competitive and marketplace information. This analysis enables clients to take informed decisions and actions to improve overall business performance. Services include:
- Financial and performance analysis and improvement
- Investment and business case development
- Business process redesign
We scrutinise operations to determine delivery options that best serve the business strategy and help our clients achieve world-class operations. Blending strategic thinking with hands-on practicality, we work to develop and implement operational strategies that solve our clients' most critical problems. We optimise organisations’ overhead functions such as finance, accounting, and human resources through detailed root-cause analyses. We then translate these insights into actions, developing a clear roadmap to transform the support functions.
Capability sourcing began as a cost-cutting measure, but companies that create real, sustained value routinely use it for far more strategic ends–to gain capabilities that they don't have in-house, or to strengthen capabilities they do have, for everything from developing world-class talent to bringing new products to market faster and enabling business model innovation.
Capability sourcing improves a company's competitive position by ensuring that processes and functions are obtained from the right source at the right cost. As sourcing matures, companies can leverage outsourcing and offshoring for more processes, in more countries, and to achieve a broader set of objectives, be it improved costs, quality, service levels or capabilities.
We help companies achieve sourcing excellence through a range of services including:
- Outsourcing partner selection and transition
- Strategic offshoring implementation and support
- Value delivery
We help clients transform their operations to and beyond their expectations, while achieving business goals related to cost and profitability. Working closely with clients at all levels in an organisation is the only way to lay the foundation for continuous improvement. We go beyond physical system design to address management infrastructure and intrinsic factors such as employees’ attitudes and behaviour, thereby ensuring the client’s ability to lead change independently.
Risk and Business Continuity
Risk has always been a part of business. To compete, grow and capture benefit, organisations must accept risk.
However, today, risk is larger, less predictable, more varied and more ubiquitous. And the nature of risk is different. Nowadays, risk is magnified by supply chain complexities, shorter product life cycles, tumultuous financial markets, sudden demand shifts, emerging competitors, global collaborations, expanding regulations and technology advances.
Risk also has many more faces: cash flow crises, supply disruptions, quality failures, cyber intrusions, financial fraud and technology breakdowns.We work with clients to create and implement integrated risk management capabilities focused on generating higher economic returns, improving shareholder value and increasing stakeholder confidence. We assist by aligning strategy, systems and processes to identify, track and manage risk proactively, enabling our clients to prepare for the unexpected. This includes assisting with:
- Business Continuity Planning
- Enterprise Risk Management
- Business Continuity Management
- Strategic Due Diligence
