Develop yourself as you help deliver change.
It starts with your own innate ability to challenge conventional assumptions – to spark thoughtful debate with colleagues and clients. With Strategy&, you won’t use ‘off the shelf’ strategies. We create bespoke solutions based on the true capabilities of the client.
Our unique approach builds from the premise that, within each organization, a few differentiating capabilities drive identity and success. Working as part of a team to frame a problem, you’ll then go on to test your hypotheses with deep dives into data and analyses. Finally, you’ll work out how strategy can become a reality. We measure success by our ability to make a lasting impact that creates sustainable value over time.
To us, strategy is not so much about where to go or how to grow, it’s about who you are. And we take the same approach with you and your development.
Strategy That Works
What do Apple, Danaher, Natura, Haier, and IKEA have in common? They have succeeded by breaking the rules.
In all too many businesses there is a significant and unnecessary gap between strategy and execution: a lack of connection between where the enterprise aims to go and what it can accomplish. In our new book, Strategy That Works, published by Harvard Business Review Press, we studied 14 iconic companies to learn what they do to close the strategy-to-execution gap – how they create value for customers, what few capabilities allow them to do so in a way that others cannot, and what products and services thrive in their unique capabilities system.
What did we discover? Leaders of these companies excel at 5 unconventional acts — management practices that contradict conventional wisdom

They are moving into a new world in which R&D is shifting more and more to developing the software that enables and enhances the performance of their products, and on developing services they can sell along with the products, which provide customers with additional features and improved usability.
