Business consulting

We speak of our core skills in strategic business consulting, and two words tell the tale: Informed foresight.

 

Our capabilities are not limited.

We are unbound to the place and time in which we work, because our values and approach are universal. The Seven Wise Men adapt to effectively reach Eastern or Western audiences.


Forget rigid business language, fancy words, and empty promises.

People come first in everything we do, because people make the real difference. Technologies and profits are essential, but the first becomes obsolete fast and the latter follows the laws of diminishing returns. 

In our experience, developing internal knowledge and resources has a more enduring power.

 

Ongoing, uplifting and restorative effects on your business. 

Our team knows how to advance macro-level profitability and technology while balancing the whole, with micro-level subtleties and needs of consusers, workforce, suppliers and the community.

To us, anything worth doing is worth doing right the first time.

OUR APPROACH TO STRATEGIC PLANNING.

We define where your company is today, where it wants to be, how to get there, and pitfalls to avoid. 

 

The Seven Wise Men have a firm grasp of the core principles that create an effective, sustainable and durable evolution in a company. Simply said, we follow this path:

 
  • Step1              We do market research and analysis
  • Step2              We audit and improve performances of each department apart
  • Step3              We integrate the workflow between a company’s different divisions
  • Step4              We rewire and repurpose a business to meet its shareholders’ requirements

The Seven Wise Men’s team views any project, investment or company from a 360-degree perspective first: we see how the part (or the short-term program) contributes to the broader (longer-term) picture.

 

Our advisors believe that “management-by-objectives” is one of the most efficient approaches to manage programmes and projects of any kind, in any sector. 

 

When people and organizations have an over-arching goal to reach, and individual tasks, needs and sub-goals are clearly assigned, aligned, integrated, supervised and adhered to.

 

The end-result becomes a natural progression and outcome of a well-orchestrated effort. 

 

Although we’re a data-driven company, our team isn’t single-minded by quantitative analyses. 

 

Hence, our team casts a wider net and keeps its eyes firmly set on the external and internal conditions, and the ever-changing variables and landscapes. To us, data is a means to an end and never an end of itself.

 

The Seven Wise Men’s strategic planners show impartiality, perseverance, support, and decisiveness: creating favourable environments with adding value and making money.

 

We take on board the critical aspects of diverse management styles and cultures and buying behaviours and incentives. 

 

In any environment, our strategic planners do not look only for immediate and material gains, ignoring the consequences of their recommendations and their far-reaching implications. Rather, we account for values that are universal, permanent, and relevant and engaging of your targeted buyers and to your workforce.

INVESTING IN STRATEGIC PLANNING IS WORTH IT.

- Tracking the smallest detail for weeks is worth it.

- Securing one more interview is worth it.

- Listening to the faintest whispers is worth it.

- Poring over thousands of documents is worth it.

- Investigating the subtlest gesture is worth it.

- Triple- checking sources is worth it.

- Validating conclusions from multiple angles is worth it.

 

 

STRATEGIC PLANNING OF CONSEQUENCE TAKES INNOVATION. DETERMINATION. AND YOU.

It'd only take you to answer 2 simple questions to start off:

- What’s your single most important goal for the next twelve months?

- What’s the key obstacle preventing you from reaching that goal?
