Business Growth

Accelerate profitable growth over the next five years

Delivering annual business growth of 5% to 10% or faster than the market for the next three to five years can be a tough challenge. Whether riding a favorable market, exploiting innovation, leveraging competitive advantage, expanding in new geographies, or any other means – growth engines eventually run out of steam.

Are you experiencing these issues?

Lack of clarity of
where to compete

Absence of privileged
market insight

Scattered attempts
against imprecise
target opportunities

Not building on business
strengths or competitive

Non-bankable growth projections

Uncertainty, lack of commitment or
assigned resources

Any of these issues flag the need for a robust growth strategy based on actionable market intelligence and precise knowledge. Business growth takes one of two strategies.

Such exploitation can involve new technology, new products, cost leadership against competitors, a lock on the delivery system, control of the value chain, and many other forms of advantage. What is particularly important is to deploy this advantage in growing markets.

This strategy functions on investments above the level of what regular market growth requires, with the aim of strengthening market position. Investments fund activities such as new market entry, channel expansion, regional or global expansion, penetration of new customer segments, gain in share of customer spend, product development (next generation, complements, support services), expanding steps in the value chain, and increased marketing and sales.
