Fit for Growth*

Strategy&’s approach to transforming your company’s performance and accelerating growth

In an uneven business climate, companies need to transform how they operate, while creating the capacity to invest in growth. Our Fit for Growth methodology for strategic cost management starts by articulating a clear and compelling cost agenda from the front line to the back office, continues with the building of lean and resilient processes, systems, operations, and organization structures, and culminates in the institutionalization of capabilities that keep resources flowing to "good" costs and away from "bad." The outcome is an adaptable, high-performance culture positioned on an accelerated path to sustained growth.

This will allow them to cut costs and grow stronger.
