Strategy Development

An ever-evolving market calls for excellent strategic thinking

There are many moving parts to a successful corporate strategy. Your senior team need to be united. You need to understand the competitive environment and have up to date market intelligence. You need to foster leadership capabilities throughout your organisation and ensure strategic and cultural fit between your business units.

We recognise that in order for your corporate strategy to be successful, it cannot be imposed. Therefore, we help get your senior team on the same page and encourage curiosity in discovering new market insights and potential directions. We then help collate and make sense of multiple data sets, enabling us to co-create powerful, intelligence-driven strategies that champion innovation and recognise your best route to implementation.

Mergers and Acquisitions

Industry expertise to boost your M&A trajectory

There are many things to consider in the veterinary and animal health industry when it comes to corporate or group M&A. Aside from triggering competition thresholds, critical analysis needs to be given to the strategic and cultural fit of a potential merger or acquisition. Pre-empting and managing the potential ramifications to staff and clients from a deal taking place is another key consideration.

We will help you identify a clear M&A strategy that complements your vision and values. We help you identify key acquisition targets and test your assumptions, to ensure strategic fit from the outset of every acquisition. Ensuring alignment of individuals, teams, and cultures to your overall strategic objectives, will create a smoother M&A process.

Organisational Culture Change

Deep insights into your cultural landscape and the levers for change

Culture and shared values are at the heart of an aligned strategy, and it is by your organisation’s culture that your strategy succeeds or fails. An organisation is unlikely to operate to its full potential unless its cultural behaviours echo its values and beliefs. As Peter Drucker famously said: “culture eats strategy for breakfast”.

We help you delve deeply and objectively into the foundations of your organisation’s culture, enabling you to paint a picture of your existing cultural landscape and identify the levers for change. We then use our expertise and knowledge to help you create a plan for positive change that will bring benefits such as smoother implementation of your strategy, better staff retention, and improved employee engagement.

People Strategy

Attract, develop, retain, and inspire your high performing individuals

A people strategy encompasses your approach to recruiting the right people, ensuring engagement, development, and retention of your staff, planning for the unexpected, and utilising employee exits to refine and improve your offering. Moreover, with recruitment within the veterinary industry at crisis point, it has never been more critical to get your people strategy right.

Whether your business strategy is set out for growth, acquisition, or integration, it requires the right people in the right places to make it happen. We work with you help develop a cohesive, robust, and well-defined people strategy that supports the mission and values of your practices or organisation as a whole. We help you make a clear statement about how your company values and treats its people, and the culture it wishes to foster.
