Business (Segment) Strategy
In the context of business (segment) strategy, infrastructure companies face the particular challenge of remaining flexible enough to react to altered customer and environmental requirements as quickly as possible, despite extensive investment sums in the range of billions and long-term investment cycles of 30 to 50 years.
Against this background, the following primary objectives are pursued in the establishment of a business (segment) strategy:
- Orientation of the company to market requirements
- Increase of competitiveness, among other by way of process efficiency and the implementation of innovative technologies and safeguarding of a sustainable competitive advantage
- Resource-efficient achievement of the corporate objectives
- Maintaining short-term flexibility despite a long-term agenda
quattron establishes a business (segment) strategy in a comprehensible process. Thus, the initial task is a detailed examination of the position of the business segment. Subsequently, possible options for action are identified and assessed.
During the subsequent, actual strategy formulation and quantification, selected action options are honed further and partial strategies are derived. In addition, further strategic thrusts are derived for the business segment strategy from corporate objectives. The strategic visions and objectives are formulated upon this foundation and a suitable target organisation is developed, if required. The entire strategy formulation is accompanied by a quantitative verification with the aid of business cases. The business segment strategy is concluded with the implementation plan (on an organisational, personnel and contractual level).
A consolidation of the business (segment) strategy with respect to procurement, financing and migration planning and the support of the strategy implementation with organisational concepts and tender/supplier management as well as the monitoring of the strategy implementation with project and change management are possible, if required.
