Strategic & financial planning
At critical moments in a company’s existence, we support the Executive Committee to align on ambitions, objectives, implementation roadmaps and financial trajectories. We assess opportunities, benchmark competition, evaluate business potential and help leadership project their company into the future. The company’s strategy can be crystallized into a Value Creation Plan which aligns business priorities with shareholders’ objectives.

We also support sell-side and fundraising processes with vendor due diligence. We supplement due diligence core teams with independent talents from Operandi.Talents’ network to provide specific sector and topic expertise.
