Strategy and Operations

Our Strategy and Operations practice sits at the heart of our most successful transformations. While our work covers a range of technological and customer issues, across industries as diverse as energy, fashion, financial services and FMCG, there is always a need to ensure that business strategy and change delivery are aligned.

We work closely with Senior Management in our clients to understand and articulate their strategy, and the practical implication of that strategy in terms of Customer and Digital Strategies, Target Operating Model design, Data Strategy and Supply-chain reinvention and whatever else is required to make sure it really works.

With our work, we aim to make sure every moving part of our clients’ business is aligned to deliver their strategy. We find, explain and fix potential conflict and help to build a long-term future for our clients that really sticks. Our appetite to join all the dots between strategy and Slalom’s phenomenal delivery capability drives results for our clients, and leads to repeat business for us time and again.
