Organisations operate in an environment of constant change and the pace of change continues to escalate. Change creates opportunities that require investment and action to realize the value presented. Change creates uncertainty related to demand, financial markets, global competition, evolving regulation, emerging business models and disruptive technologies that an enterprise must respond to. In this environment organisations that adapt faster with more discipline than their competitors will unlock their potential for growth.
Within this environment of change Grant Thornton’s business transformation capabilities are designed to help dynamic organisations with great aspirations develop and execute growth strategies and become more efficient and effective in achieving their strategic goals. We can help identify opportunities, execute growth strategies, manage risk, improve performance and leverage technology.
Our solutions support the needs of organisations across the growth lifecycle, helping build a foundation for growth, overcome barriers and create, protect and restore value.
We provide expertise through real-world experience in many different industries and environments and offer effective tools to accelerate the success of your business. We will deliver practical, actionable advice to maximise opportunities within the realities of your business.
Our aim is to provide excellent, top-quality services that drive bottom line improvement. Our concept of consulting involves working with the client as a team, engaging in a creative search for the best solution, finding the energy necessary for overcoming obstacles, and turning proposals into practical and functioning solutions that offer you tangible benefits – lowered risk, increased turnover, and reduced costs.
Our project teams do not produce reams of paper, but logical and simple recommendations, presented hand-in-hand with the tools for their implementation. We consider a project to be complete only when the original task has been truly met and the area in question is functioning as it should.
