Developing and implementing your company or organization’s major goals, objectives and activities, based on the reallocation of resources and set business plans. Driving changes through sustainable strategy development process.

 

Strategic management and planning

The development of a strategic management and planning process can be challenging. Organizations may encounter difficulties in conciliating daily operations with long term strategic goals, or allocating the necessary resources to implement these strategies.

Agavis Consulting helps clients strengthen their strategy development process, enhance their internal strategic competencies and improve implementation. Our strategy development model assists organizations and companies in building the foundation of their activities, increasing their future impact and identifying new development opportunities.

Activity strategy and resource allocation

Many organizations and companies evaluate their activities through their annual budget review, thereby missing the opportunity to assess different strategic options for the upcoming years.

Strategic options will be fully efficient only if organizations and companies can reallocate resources accordingly. Effective resource allocation requires both flexibility and time in a dynamic environment, and can be equally demanding, both at a managerial and operational level.

A different perspective on a client’s operations will offer the best strategic options, with adjusted resources. Agavis Consulting guides clients in developing not only their long term strategy, but also their internal implementation capabilities.

Governance planning

Governance planning can be challenging for organizations and companies, managing simultaneously the organization’s objectives, regulatory requirements, and social expectations.

Good governance development will help strengthen accountability processes and improve the channels of communication within the company. Well-balanced governance systems need to:

  • Identify organizational changes needed to optimize processes and outcomes.
  • Establish transparent controls and effective reporting process to manage risks and performance.
  • Define outcomes in terms of economic, social and environmental benefits.

Agavis Consulting will assist in governance planning, more specifically in:

  • Governance model development.
  • Integration of legal and regulatory requirements.
  • Codes of conduct development and assimilation of social responsibility.
Stakeholder management

A strategy is only successful when all stakeholders are well aligned and engaged. Strategic decisions rely on a thorough understanding of the stakeholders’ profile, expectations, including stakeholders’ culture.

Agavis Consulting offers integrated solutions to identify, organize and manage stakeholder relevant information, with the following outcomes:

  • Identification - An exhaustive organization catalogue of all internal and external actors.
  • Analysis and mapping - Identification of all the different needs, concerns and expectations of the various stakeholders.
  • Matrix - Distribution of the stakeholders across a strategic matrix to define adapted outcomes accordingly.
  • Communication – Effective messages and adapted communication channels to strengthen stakeholders’ engagement.

These different tools will shape and align an organization's activities with internal and external expectations, which is a crucial asset for growth and development.

Sustainability & Corporate responsibility

Experience and research show that sustainability & corporate responsibility must be integrated at the highest strategic level to ensure successful implementation and achieve the greatest impact.

Organizations and corporations need to prioritize sustainability issues given their specific activities. Essentially, sustainability and responsibility choices have to resonate with the core activities of the organization.

Agavis Consulting advises clients on how to integrate sustainability and corporate responsibility (two great assets that are usually overlooked or undervalued) into their business strategy, business models and operating processes.

Agavis Consulting helps clients plan and align their resource requirements in light of the organization’s vision, goals and objectives. Agavis offers an analytics-based approach to evaluate current performance and improve your organization’s systems.

 

Organization design

The structure of an organization defines its capacity to identify business development opportunities, execute strategy and adapt to change. Designing an efficient and competitive structure requires a translation of objectives into an organizational configuration, aligning accountabilities and developing sustainable principles within the organizational design.

Agavis Consulting offers diagnostics that can assess the strengths and weaknesses of your current organizational design. We make sure to align new structures with the organization’s strategy and operations, before proceeding on to the implementation phase.

Agavis’ expertise ensures accountability within the different levels of an organization, and adherence to its mission and objectives. A new organizational design is only truly implemented until performance can be measured.

Human Capital Development

Developing in-house capabilities and internal talent is crucial in an organization that wants to build a strong legacy and ensure long-term efficiency and competitiveness.

Agavis Consulting helps organizations evaluate their human capital development needs and translate them into a tailored full-fledged professional development program.

Agavis Consulting also offers training courses in the following specific areas:

  • Project and program management.
  • Change management and resource development.
  • Reporting level push-back.
  • Management across cultures.
  • Organizational development.

Agavis Consulting also offers business and executive coaching programs for professionals that need to develop their leadership skills, supervise multi-disciplinary, cross-function or cross-geography teams, or professionals who may be looking to transfer their skills to another industry.

Agavis Consulting helps clients reinforce their core capabilities by developing efficient internal operations (distribution of resources) and effective external operations (meet stakeholder requirements and market demand).

 

Business Development

Business development is the process of identifying and creating long-term value for an organization. Organizations remain competitive and relevant in their market through continuous innovation and product/service improvements. A well-designed business development process takes into account customer relationships, markets, products and services, to move organizations into new business horizons and deliver consistent and sustainable company growth.

Agavis Consulting helps clients identify these business development and growth opportunities, by assessing the external market/environment together with the organization’s DNA and values.

In order for successful implementation and maintenance of a proper business development process, Agavis Consulting provides external, objective and independent capabilities that allow our clients to overcome frequent challenges such as:

  • Time management and attention bogged-down by day-to-day operations.
  • Loss of fresh business perspective, hampered by years of status quo operation.
  • Insufficient resources.
  • Unfamiliarity with new targeted markets.
  • Lack of specific analysis capability.

Agavis Consulting supports established SME, and start-up organizations alike by providing tailored expertise and solutions. Our expertise for established/SME organizations relate to:

  • Company performance and market positioning analysis.
  • New-market or partnership potential evaluation.
  • New product/company market entry impact analysis.
  • Branding/marketing strategy development.
  • Staff training and coaching.

Our expertise for start-up organizations involve:

  • Business model development & analysis
  • Business plan development and investor presentation support.
  • Operational budget elaboration and stress testing.
  • Market entry and competitor reaction assessment.
  • New product/service launch and communication strategy.

Program & Project management

General program management and the design and implementation of one-off projects is an important activity in all organizations across any sector. A successful program and project development requires specific knowledge, know-how and operational skills to ensure optimal impact and results. Without these capabilities various risk factors (e.g., organizational, financial, operational) can jeopardize the success of a program or project within any organization.

Program and project management can be done in-house but requires clear methodologies as well as fully trained human resources. Using external resources to run program/project management yields the following advantages:

  • External resources are tied to the scope and duration of the project, HR costs are then flexible and limited.
  • External experts are fully focused and assigned to the project at hand, hence better enabled to deliver results and impact.
  • Use of external resources avoids day-to-day operation disruptions.
  • External experts bring deep and extensive functional know-how, acquired through similar experiences with organizations across different industries and geographies.

Agavis Consulting can help clients develop their own project management capabilities as well as provide project management support and capabilities to meet our clients’ needs:

  • Identification of the best suited methodology.
  • Planning, development and implementation support.
  • Complete program or project management.
  • Staff training.

Sustainable and ethical supply chain management

The constant changing market demands and competition in a global environment increase the complexity of managing a supply chain. When it fails to align with an organization’s strategy and sustainable values, supply chain management can have a sizeable and negative impact on companies and an organization’s operation. Effective and sustainable supply chain management can not only promote growth, but it also improves and consolidates the company’s image and competitive position.

Best practices have been developed by the UN Global Impact initiative, identifying 4 drivers for sustainable and ethical supply chain management:

  • Values & efficiencies
  • Stockholders expectations
  • Regulation
  • Global alignment

Agavis Consulting refers to this framework to help clients develop an efficient economical and sustainable supply chain. Assisting clients with:

  • Risk mitigation – Securing supply – Operational efficiency – Supplier selection and management – Reputational benefit analysis
  • Meeting stakeholders expectations – Verifying sustainable claims
  • Meeting and exceeding legal requirements
  • Standardizing processes – Securing natural resources

Agavis Consulting applies deep and distinctive operational and functional expertise to help clients surpass typical sustainable supply chain challenges. Our tailored solutions support your organization’s strategic objectives, minimize risks and facilitate operations.

Finance is usually seen as a mere support function, part of the end-of-year fiscal accounting cycle. However, financial planning should be part of the organization’s strategy cycle. A well-designed financial plan can help shape organization operations, and define medium/long-term milestones and objectives.

Management accounting

Management accounting is an important tool to support operations and the on-going decision-making process that happens between each strategy revision cycle. Unlike financial accounting, which produces annual reports mainly for external stakeholders, management accounting generates key information, mainly for internal audiences.

Agavis Consulting helps clients identify, track, analyze, and interpret the most relevant management information.

More precisely, we help clients:

  • Develop management accounting principles and policies.
  • Build management accounting models that underpin the day-to-day decision making process and feed into the strategy review cycle.
  • Define financial and non-financial key performance indicators.
  • Train staff on the use and development of management accounting tools.

Agavis Consulting helps clients reinforce their core capabilities by developing efficient operations internally (adapted distribution of resources) and effective operations externally (met stakeholders requirements).

 

Sustainability was traditionally regarded as an external constraint that was brought on by public opinion, and would force organizations to act, invest, or spend resources needlessly. By way of national & international regulation, sustainability then became, for many organizations, a legal constraint. Today, top organizations have incorporated sustainability into their business model, and even more visionary organizations have built new business models around sustainability concepts.

Agavis Consulting helps clients:

  • Analyze their current sustainability strategy with our Agavis AVP Framework.
  • Integrate sustainability goals & objectives into long-term strategic plans to boost organization performance and brand recognition.
  • Identify, develop & deploy corporate responsibility programs and projects.

Sustainability management

Sustainability is no longer an optional add-on to the core activities of any organization. Organizations today, are forced to (and should pro-actively) consider the social and environmental impacts of their operations, track their performance and report to their various stakeholders.

Sustainability management looks at the efficiency of an organization from different perspectives (e.g., programs, projects, processes, culture, values). It seeks to identify and leverage sustainable opportunities to create innovative business models, develop internal talent and offer your organization a competitive advantage.

We help companies to identify and implement lasting solutions in sustainable management. We support governments in including sustainability in their long-term plans, to protect their country’s natural environment and landscape, as well as increase their general population’s well-being.

Agavis Consulting helps clients:

  • Create the necessary sustainable values framework to change internal culture and shift the organization’s operations to a more sustainable and efficient model.
  • Identify and develop organizational capabilities to become a leader in sustainability.
  • Develop a competitive advantage and public recognition through sustainable products, services and processes.
  • Identify and develop measures to reduce the organization’s impact and enhance sustainable results.
  • Measure sustainable performance, evaluate internal results and develop a comprehensive sustainability reporting process.
  • Identify and establish partnerships with other key sustainability players in their industry/market/country.

NGOs and International Organizations, leaders in different sustainability sectors, are confronted with other challenges. Promoting best practices and sustainable values is essential to push sustainability forward, however, business needs/expectations can often seem opposing, thereby creating a need for a common language.

Agavis Consulting helps clients:

  • Develop new programs, and comprehensive communication tools & strategies to promote sustainability in the business environment.
  • Implement a strategic approach in developing sustainability partnerships with the business or for-profit sector.

Sustainable use of ecosystem & natural resources

All organizations will, directly or indirectly, make use of ecosystems and natural resources. The business, public and non-governmental sectors, all face natural resource challenges. Consequently, the management of these resources will generate long-term risks or opportunities and have an important economic, operational and reputational impact.

Using Agavis’ ecological impact matrix & assessment framework, we help our clients identify & understand these risks, and opportunities. This evaluation will assess the durability of each of our client’s activities, the impact these have on ecosystems & natural resources, as well as propose measures to minimize these impacts.

More importantly, our capabilities will help clients integrate a sustainable use of ecosystems and natural resources at all strategic and operational levels.

Agavis Consulting capabilities:

  • Natural resource strategy, scenario planning, risk & opportunity assessment.
  • Natural resource management, process development and implementation.
  • Ecosystem impact assessment, compensation programs/project development and implementation.

Ecosystem services is an objective & measurable evaluation of the services delivered by a particular ecosystem, such as:

  • Support services (e.g., nutriment or seed dispersal, primary production)
  • Provision services (e.g., food, raw material, water, energy, medicinal resources)
  • Regulation services (e.g., carbon sequestration, air & water purification)
  • Cultural services (e.g., recreational experiences, science & education)

The three major sectors of the economy can have their own subjective perspectives on ecosystem services: the private sector can see them as business resources, the public sector can see them as social/patrimonial resources, and the nonprofit sector can see them as natural treasures.

Despite the relevance these perspectives may have, they fail to be objective and are rarely complete. To avoid subjective/incomplete decisions, ecosystem & natural resources need to be objectively evaluated from a different outlook and with different tools:

Economic

  • Which economical services are provided?
  • What is the economical impact of the services? How to integrate these services into a balance sheet?
  • How to ensure economical services are sustainable?
  • What are the risks of ecosystem service degradation?

Social

  • What are the social services, values and benefits they provide?
  • What are the key indicators or ways to measure these social benefits?
  • What are the costs associated with the conservation of these services?

Ecologic

  • Which ecological services are provided, what are the benefits and key indicators of these services?
  • What are the ecological and degradation trends/risks associated?
  • What are the potential PES (Payments for Ecosystem Services), and the potential beneficiaries?

We help our clients make strategic & operational decisions on ecosystem services to capture the best sustainable opportunities and enhance their performance through a sustainable use of natural resources. Our tailored solutions will help you understand the benefits and growth potential that nature provides to your business or organization, as well as the necessary measures to maintain these services.
