Managing strategy execution through PMO and SDO development
We take a very hands-on and practical role in our engagements, working on-site with clients to help them move beyond strategy development to strategy execution – an integral part of which is performance management oversight by the Strategy Delivery Office (SDO) and project management of strategic initiatives and growth/diversification projects by the Project Management Office (PMO).
Our approach to SDO and PMO development results in measurable value creation across key metrics in human resources, process improvements, production/productivity yields, finance, sales and marketing. The objective is to guide clients not just in planning their business venture, but also in implementing the project in full.
Specialised offering adapted to varying needs of the client
With the overall goal of achieving lasting and beneficial change for your organisation, we aim to help you execute your strategy and realise where improvements can be made at a strategic level in planned investments, as well as at operational level with existing operations through value chain mapping and optimisation. We understand that a smart organisation structure is key to enabling a strategy, delving deep into how functions are carried out in your organisation and how they relate to and complement each other. This avoids the “silo” phenomenon which, in our experience, is all too pervasive among many agricultural companies and multilateral agencies’ programmes and is a key failure point in strategy execution.
We base organisation chart development on function importance and impact, ensuring a smart lean organisation structure for enabling your strategy. Our proven ability to provide expert services in project evaluation and Project Management Consultancy (PMC) across the F&B value chain distinguishes us from the rest as we advise and support at every point along the strategy execution journey.
The African agribusiness sector, dubbed the ‘new oil’ of the continent according to the AfDB, is forecast to be worth over $1 trillion by 2030. However, there is a way to go before this ambitious projection is achieved. Lack of knowledge surrounding agricultural best practices and difficulties relating to access to capital is hindering progress. Through collaborative project implementation, our team of highly experienced industry experts can bridge this gap – ensuring local farmers and food & agriculture stakeholders are given the best opportunity for long-term success.
