  • Financial analysis
  • Performance assessment
  • Performance targeting
  • Facility and equipment reviews and development
  • Benchmarking of processes and practices

Effective strategic planning requires an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the industry and the company or organisation concerned.  We have extensive experience in strategic planning for shipyards and equipment manufacturers and have developed innovative techniques for matching the technical aspects of the business to its market.
