Commercial Strategy

Understand your outset, make the right choices and outline the coherent set of actions to boost profitable, organic growth.

Take your commercial strategy to a whole new level of value creation

The environment in which your commercial organization operates is changing. Customer demands, technologies, and service models are rapidly developing, setting new standards and creating opportunities.

As a consequence, companies need to revisit their commercial strategy with high frequency and answer questions like:

  • Which markets do we focus on?
  • Which customers do we focus on?
  • What do we offer for these customers?
  • How do we win those customers most profitably?
  • How do we grow and retain our customers most effectively?

Commercial strategy development is the process and discipline of answering those questions and translating them into a coherent set of actions for operations and development.

The starting point towards greater value creation

Although the initial creation of a clear and coherent strategy report is a linear process with the commercial leadership team, subsequent strategizing happens in an iterative process as new knowledge is added and old assumptions are challenged.

While the outcome of the strategy process is a tangible document describing which opportunities and associated challenges sales and marketing leaders will focus operational & development resources towards, why and how it will be done, this is just the starting point towards greater value creation from better use of commercial resources and closer collaboration between sales & marketing.

It is the foundation for guiding operations and subsequent transformation initiatives but not the end destination

Case in point

A European leader in commercial technology for the pharmaceutical industry experienced declining growth rates and declining prices due to growing pressure from the competition and commoditization in their traditional core product.

The CEO needed to identify the strategy to counter these developments and move the company onto a new sustainable growth trajectory — the rest of the executives aligned around these decisions.

Over 3 months, the company partnered with Kvadrant Consulting to kickstart this process and crafted a joint strategy for the company with associated functional strategies to support their new winning ambition.
