methodologies and adapt them to their culture and the nature of their
business. Turning innovation into a process is the aim of our

How to get value out of data has
always been the challenge.
In the modern era of big data, the value gap turns out to be in the
past, with executives and managers who have never been trained
to take advantage of their new data assets (both people and technology).
Leveraging our vast capability in data analysis, strategy, and
innovation, the focus of our data expert’s practice is bridging the gap
between analysis and value.
BUILDING THE INFRASTRUCTURE

implemented with relative speed.
The benefits of Hoshin Planning are
derived from its highly collaborative
foundation that ensures
engagement, agreement, and
accountability, which are all critical
to successful strategy execution.
While true mastery of Hoshin
Planning can take years because of
the need to see the process through
more than once, results can be seen
in as little as weeks.
Our practice is dedicated to periodic
strategic renewal or, in some cases,
that once-in-a-generation creation of
an entirely new strategy.
It turns out that the challenge most companies face with strategy execution
has little to do with their ability to execute strategy. Instead, the problem most
often is the lack of a true strategy itself.
Creating strategy, however, is more complicated than ever. In today’s
increasingly complex world, competition can come from 8,000 miles away or
a disruptive startup next door. Under these circumstances, Under these
circumstances, the inability to execute on a strategy is generally exacerbated by a confusing – or completely absent – core or foundational strategy.
