VALOR supports its clients in formulating and executing their strategies. Our approach to strategy is underpinned by the notion that every client situation is unique and therefore requires a tailor-made approach. We create value for our clients through rigorous analysis, accrued deep sector experience and functional knowledge, as well as pragmatic and action-oriented solutions – not through off-the shelf templates or generic frameworks.

We take pride in speaking our clients’ language, and our senior team members serve as sparring partners to our clients’ decision makers on all strategic questions – whether it is the long-term direction of the company or the implementation timeline for a specific initiative. Our support in strategy-related engagements can take the shape of process facilitation to full responsibility for the process, from data gathering and analysis to strategy formulation. Regardless of the role, our consultants always have their own viewpoint. 

For us, strategy processes are only a small share of our strategy advisory work. Market studies, competitor analysis and feasibility studies are typical assignments that support our clients in making better fact-based strategic choices. Go-to-market strategies, product strategies and pricing strategies are examples of more focused strategic assignments. Restructuring the organization and establishing new management processes are often essential components of strategy delivery.
