RCI will partner with you to transform your vision into a clear intent and from this, develop actionable plans to deliver your vision. RCI is here to help you identify achievable business opportunities that are perfectly suited to your firm’s internal competencies in order to drive competitive advantage. We help you get the most out of your internal assets and capabilities, better recognizing potential opportunities while managing threats.
Here are some of the ways RCI can help you in choosing the right strategies:
Let RCI help you and your team explore strategic directions and help align your organization with the external business environment.
We help your leadership develop a vision and strategic intent and to define a business strategy to add value to stakeholders, customers and the broader community within which your organisation operates. We help determine appropriate structures, technologies, and systems to support the strategy and develop values, leadership styles, competencies and skills to engage your workforce in supporting the strategy. We help align the change agenda to the strategy, ensuring the human resource strategy and practices are linked through the change agenda to your organization’s strategies and goals.
RCI works with organizations to develop strategic intent and business strategy linked to long-term possibilities, customer analysis and through examining the critical impacts on performance. These then are used to create business output targets and key performance areas linked to team and individual performance indicators and accountabilities.
RCI helps organizations systematically analyse the business environment, combining your intuition of the business context with analytics and numerical analysis. We help analyse the business environment through the analysis of alternative scenarios of how your organization might evolve over time. We help you develop medium term and longer term scenarios which consider market and clients, technology, products and services, the workforce and workforce structure, your stakeholders, resources and competitors. Go beyond your short term business plan and resource constraints and imagine a new set of strategic parameters for your firm.
RCI works with organizations to understand customers better, learn what they think, what they need and what they want. Working with leadership teams, we help determine what customers might require in the future, collect and analyse this data and use this as input to the strategy process. The purpose here is to ensure the organization matches what the customer wants to what it can provide.
We help firms clarify understanding of the external and internal factors that could critically impact on business performance over the shorter term. We help your team identify the issues that impact on your ability to meet objectives over the short term and to analyse these as to impact and urgency.
Helping organizations with vision and strategic intent, RCI challenges teams to disregard current constraints and to focus on new and unrealized ambition. We call it ‘informed dreaming’. We help your team take output from the environmental scanning process to reinvent value in your markets. Along with the vision, we help your team develop purpose, principles and values to set expectations and aspirations for the organization.
RCI understands that strategic intent must be supported with well-planned operations strategy and business plan. We help you with customer service, financial allocation, investment policy, technology decisions and human resource strategies to effectively deliver your corporate vision. We help you to align operational capability with the strategic intent.
RCI helps teams establish stretching performance goals through benchmarking and comparison. We help define policy benchmarks, like profit ratios, productivity levels, spend ratios and customer service, as well as process benchmarks, such as operational efficiency and use of technology. We work with you to determine appropriate financial value, market reach, customer satisfaction and quality goals.
RCI works with leaders to develop processes of assigning accountability at the corporate, unit and individual levels, creating goal-setting systems and business performance planning systems for your organization. This way, there is a process of analysis and communication about how the strategy is translated to action, with measures of performance driving commitment and accountability at the group, team and individual levels.
