Sharpening the competitive focus and edge – The concept of sustained competitive advantage is often elusive and still, the heart of business strategy consists of accurately determining which corporate battles to engage in and consistently developing the capabilities required to win.

Defining globalization models and priorities – Globalizing out of a unique home market is tricky. It necessitates outperforming local players with distinct local advantages as well as global giants who leverage global competitive assets and economies of scale. 

Directing non-organic growth – Companies often reach a ‘glass ceiling’ to their organic growth. The challenge is to direct non-organic growth initiatives to adjacent businesses in order to maximize the probability of success in non-organic growth.

Developing national public policy – Government policy-makers must optimize the impact of regulation on markets, develop public assets and ensure effective delivery of services while considering a variety of stakeholder concerns.

Crafting non-profit strategy – Third-sector organizations face a constant challenge: maximize the impact of limited resources in advancing their vision and goals, while competing for public attention and philanthropic and public funds.
