Performance gap analysis

The situation

A diversified real estate developer with the largest single-segment operating property portfolio in its country was looking to chart its next growth phase that would see it rival leading international peers in terms of GLA size.

The client was looking to measure its existing performance and capabilities against best practices and local competitors and identify key gaps.

How we helped

Strategy& conducted the strategic diagnostic on two main fronts:

  • A business performance assessment covering portfolio and asset class exposure, financial performance, financial sustainability and capital structure, and operational performance
  • A capability assessment covering all core functions across the value chain and identifying gaps along organization, governance and decision-making, skills and people, tools, and processes

Results

The findings were consolidated into a performance gap report and approved by the board; this subsequently constituted the blueprint for the firm’s growth strategy.
