Methodology

Our Approach

We obtain a 360° perspective of companies by systematizing information and simulating the strategic risks of our complex environment.

Our distinctive competency lies in our consultative approach: we combine traditional consulting methods with strategic simulation modelling tools to support decision-making processes. Our consulting services can be provided with or without dynamic simulation modelling. We identify specific problems, formulate strategic decisions, and predict their future outcomes in a zero-risk environment. This layered approach can help entrepreneurs deal with potential obstacles and uncertainties associated with their strategic plan.

Work Method

Our approach to projects involves clients from start to finish in each decision-making phase through a number of well-defined workshops.

Phase 1:

The first few workshops are in the form of meetings attended by representatives of the client company and field-specific managers. In this stage, our expert consultants act as mentors to help highlight problems, specific organizational characteristics, and business requirements that may be channeled to the simulation system for potential implementation.

Phase 2:

The information identified in the initial stages highlights the relationships between the variables (helping to define the objectives of the model), the relationship between its structural components, and the desired results, all while complying to the company’s business objectives. Our experts – once again in collaboration with our customer’s managers – use the subsequent workshops to gradually apply these components to the model. The progress is continuously shared and discussed with all participants.

Phase 3:

The workshops that follow define the components to be applied to the model, and present the simulator’s behavior by showing various levels of software prototypes, potential improvements, detailed research and refinements.

Phase 4:

The final workshop analyzes the results of the model, and validates the potential decisions. By also taking into consideration both the client’s initial requests and the suggestions of our consultants, a strategic plan is formulated.

Following Phase 4, our clients may hold further assessment and validation workshops independently from our consultants. In this context, the model released at the conclusion of the project is to be used in order to keep up-to-date with the most recent data, and obtain results that are aligned with potential changes that may be occurring. This approach allows for the application of the Control Tower methodology that follows Management’s decision process.
