Be different from your Rivals | Strengthen your Market Position | International Strategy Consulting & Business Development
Today's markets are changing faster than ever before, and continued success in such environments demands the right business strategy. In order to

Every phase is defined, implemented and monitored by our experienced experts. We will work together with you to develop the optimum strategy for your business.
We help you to find the right track to turn your activity in a successful business.
Imagine you are a CEO. You are beginning to lose market share on your key product. Marketing urges you to increase advertising and reduce prices. R&D has high hopes on a new product and wants
more money. Finance is worried about your debt level. Human Resources does not find enough qualified people to support your development. And you have just been offered to buy (at a good price, of
course) one of your competitors.
What do you do? First, you'll have to make choices. Then, you'll have to ensure that these choices will give you the proverbial competitive advantage. Maybe you need to trim costs. Maybe you need to spend more to innovate. Maybe you need to expand to exploit economies of scale. But whatever you do, you will have to do it better than the competition.
Business strategy consulting is about facts and common sense much more than vision or dreams. Facts make decisions easier. Dreams without facts make them tougher.
Business strategy consulting is tailor-made thinking. What works for one company will not necessarily work for the other, even in the same industry. Strategists use tools, but tools don't make the strategist. Only the quality of the people matters in this business.
An obvious question: "Why don't organisations just take care of these questions themselves?"
Consultants are generally brought in on the important decisions that are vital to the future of the company, to make sure the every angle is considered. They can devote themselves entirely the the question at hand, while executives are normally busy with the actual running of the company. Consultants also offer deep expertise in a particular industry or subject, such as market positioning or restructuring.
There also occasions when consultants fulfill a legal purpose. During a merger, before the transaction is completed, it is illegal to share information between the two companies. Consultants can operate independently, sourcing information from both parties to have a strategy ready for the moment the last document is signed.
SMART cs helps clients in every industry to develop and deliver winning strategies.
We enjoy our work ― and we have fun doing it.
