Turning vision into action:

Long Range Planning (LRP)

Creating a Long-Range Plan for your business is a strategic step in transforming your organization's long-term vision into a tangible roadmap. This ensures the alignment of all actions and resources towards achieving your objectives.

 

By implementing a LRP, you ensure that every aspect of your company is unified in working towards a shared goal over the next three to five years. This approach fosters sustainable growth, motivation and resilience amidst the challenges of a competitive and ever-changing business landscape.

 

The LRP serves as a comprehensive framework that connects all your departments, such as Business Operations, Sales, Human Resources, Marketing, Finance, and IT, ensuring a coherent resource management to execute the organization’s strategy.

A long-range plan addresses questions like:

  • How to increase competitiveness and market share?

It will bring you:

We will set up the appropriate long-term and intermediary Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to track progress towards the long-term objectives. We will implement project management tools to monitor the plan's execution. Lastly, we will develop financial analysis and reporting tools to ensure effective execution and follow-up.

What we don't do

Our unique approach to Long Range Planning means:
  • Not telling what you know already. You know your market and your business, we won’t add 50 slides to re-explain it just to re-explain it but in a beautiful way. Our plan is focused on pragmatic and added-value, giving you the right information. We start from what you already have an don’t reinvent the wheel.

  • No theoretical exercise: we will not provide you with a plan destined to fail because unapplicable. The LRP provided is following a strategic and rigorous methodology, but is always oriented towards operational feasibility. We make sure that every recommendation or proposed scenario is practically applicable to the business, taking into account the operational environment, resources and company culture.

  • No random team: no juniors for CFO-level tasks and no overqualified consultants for simpler tasks. We set up the perfectly curated team of analysts, led and supervised by one of our partners with CFO experience and familiar with the exercise. When needed, external resources will be hired for their sector knowledge.

  • No exercise in isolation: we don’t just take your figures and take it from there. Our approach is fundamentally built on continuous interaction with our clients throughout the entire process. We place a high value on this engagement and proximity, ensuring that we work closely and transparently with our clients. The process is interactive and includes regular feedback rounds to make sure that the end-results answers the right needs and aspirations.
