Strategic Studies

Utility Consultants can provide strategic advice in the following areas....

Organic growth opportunities

- Identification of growth opportunities by end-to-end value chain analysis.

- Revenue and cost modelling of growth opportunities.

Industry reshuffles

- Identification of acquistion opportunities as existing utilities divest or exit.

- Analysis of ownership options.

- Analysis of cost and regulatory impacts of industry reshuffles.

- Analysis of regulatory issues surrounding acquisition opportunities.

- Analysis of competitor activity.

Strategic planning

- Development of traditional strategic models and frameworks - SWOT, PEST etc.

- Application of generic strategy models - BCG matrix, McKinsey - GE matrix , AD Little matrix etc
