Blackswan Strategy

blackswan Strategy provides competitive first-mover advantage in the external marketplace.
blackswan Strategy enables businesses to leverage and utilise their resources to meet the known / unknown needs of the marketplace to improve their balance sheet performance.

Is your strategy transformational? Are your competitors talking about you? Have you got the right GPS to the ideal final result? Does your strategy match the VOC (Voice of the Customer) with the VOS (Voice of the System)? Does your strategy guide how you allocate resources?

How does your business benefit:

At blackswan, we see strategy as much more than a plan. We work with companies in every industry to develop strategies that address the following five challenges:

  1. Increasing shareholder, market and balance sheet value,
  2. Making the whole of the enterprise greater than the sum of the parts,
  3. Identifying market opportunities, and wiring the organisation for new growth,
  4. Managing socio-political and regulatory issues for business advantage,
  5. Transforming the Business DNA with innovative effectiveness challenges.
