Operating Strategy & Cost

Operating Strategy & Cost

Helping clients align their operating model to their financial targets, strategic objectives and efficiency imperatives.

Aligning operating models with execution

KPMG’s Operating Strategy & Cost services supports member firm clients to identify, quantify, prioritise and deliver the changes required to align their operating model to their financial targets and strategic objectives, delivering rapid improvement in performance and value.

With ever-increasing customer expectations, rapid market & technological change, disruptions from new entrants, increasing levels of regulation & reputational risk, along-side ever greater shareholder scrutiny on performance, business leaders are being forced to continually re-evaluate their operational strategy and ask themselves the key question as to whether they are organised in the optimal way to deliver their business strategy and maximise shareholder value.

The Operating Strategy & Cost proposition supports clients address this challenge through a structured approach to identify, prioritize and implement changes to their operating model and refinements of their strategy and targets.

There are a number of triggers which often cause businesses to re-assess their operating model including:

  • Significant changes in market, competitive dynamics, and/or business strategy
  • Performance and funding gaps
  • Complex and inefficient operating model structures
  • Technologically or regulatory driven change

KPMG firms support clients to increase value through successfully aligning their operating model to the business strategy and financial targets through:

  • Identifying the changes required to align the operating model to the business strategy and financial targets, including challenging strategic decisions that are potentially value diluting
  • Developing and testing a range of alternative operating model options to identify the optimal solution for their business, balancing opportunity and risk
  • Identifying, quantifying and prioritising efficiency opportunities, to drive cost reduction and/or free up funds for investment
  • Streamlining and aligning processes, organizational structures, management information, decision rights and incentives
  • Designing and sequencing a change program to successfully deliver the required changes
