The case studies provide a sampling of our client work

Companies struggling with tough issues like eroding earnings or dwindling market share take on strategic transformations in order to survive. But an organization at the top of its game, like Mediaset, has reason to keep doing what it’s been doing.
Quest Diagnostics is the leading provider of diagnostic laboratory testing, information, and services in the U.S. And Strategy&’s relationship dates back to 1992, when we worked on a business process reengineering program for Corning Incorporated, the company that would eventually spin off its clinical labs unit into Quest Diagnostics in 1997.
Wolters Kluwer, a renowned firm based in Amsterdam, was founded in the early 1800s, and had always operated as a classic Dutch holding company. Over the last 200 years, Wolters Kluwer has evolved into a leading information provider for the professional market.
