At Carter Seven we are well positioned to help you achieve long-term sustainable success, which aligns with your capabilities, systems and value proposition.

  • A focus on long-term viability and stability
  • An approach to growth that is holistic, intentional and strategic
  • Aligning growth initiatives with existing capabilities

Some companies adopt a scattered approach, attempting to pursue growth in multiple areas simultaneously, involving entering different markets, launching various products and implementing diverse growth strategies. The consequences are that growth strategies often lead to a dispersion of resources allocated across a broad spectrum.

Our approach encourages the importance of strategic focus carefully selecting and prioritizing growth strategies that, align with a company’s strengths, delivers a clear customer value proposition and seeks out market opportunities.

Operations & Organizational Transformation

Alignment of a business’s strategy and operating model is crucial to ensure a business is tailored to serve its objectives optimally.

Key challenges to overcome:

  • Business units and functions often may prioritize their own goals over the broader objectives
  • Resources may not be efficiently utilised or tracked
  • Implementation of strategic goals may be a struggle
  • A culture of dismissive accountability

An operating model is a foundational element that shapes behaviour, process workflow, IT decisions and investment choices and as such its design and alignment are critical to avoid an extremely challenging bridge between Strategy and execution.

Coordination and concentration of resources is of paramount importance, so we take an holistic approach, considering, people, culture, processes, governance structure and technology to create a cohesive framework that propels an organization towards its strategic objectives, ensuring an aligned and adaptable operating model. 

In addition, we can lead your end-to-end organizational transformation effort with a results orientated approach built on team collaboration and ongoing development.
