Operandi Strategy


We set up tailored and agile strategy consulting teams to deliver effective support.

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.

Commercial due diligences

PE investors as well as Corporate M&A teams require investment support to assess targets’ relevance: such as market attractiveness, competitive environment, targets’ competitive advantage, specific risks. 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.

Transformation: organization, performance, integration, digital

Our consultants address transformational enablers for growth: organization and process re-design, operational performance (lean methodologies), implementation (in collaboration with work councils), and post-merger integration. Digital transformation is increasingly critical in company roadmaps: we help business leaders envision new business models, contemplate evolving competitive dynamics and changing success factors to ensure optimal digital investments.

Innovation: corporate venture, ‘intrapreneurship’, in/excubation

Inspired by our experience in the startup & tech ecosystem, we developed specific methodologies to support and foster innovation, from design to implementation. Innovation strategy (rationale and priorities), innovation portfolio (value analysis, lean testing, governance), innovation structures (labs, hubs, open innovation), Corporate Venture (investment thesis and scouting, deal support), Digital IT (digital factories, 2-speed IT, no-code prototyping), entrepreneurial growth (opportunity generation, assessment, incubation, excubation), culture shaping (management capability enhancement).
