For a successful operation of companies and state institutions, it is indispensable that executive decisions are made with due consideration of all significant circumstances and using historical data, forecasts and expert opinions. KPMG assists its private clients as well as those in the public sector with their executive decisions, providing help in managing strategic, regulatory, policy-related and market challenges.

Corporate strategy

KPMG’s global strategy methodology allows for the current strategic framework of companies to be broken down into their elements, followed by a structured analysis, and the successful redesign of their business activities. Our strategic support is provided with a unified approach and with the participation of KPMG’s experts in strategy, analysis, operations, client experience, organisational development, HR, IT, finance, risk management, industry, and if required, transaction or taxation experts. Strategic support can cover the following areas:

  • Formation and revision of corporate strategy,
  • Financial modelling (financial ambitions, financial plan),

  • Operational modelling (business processes, infrastructure, IT, organisational structure, governance model, controls, human resources and culture),
  • Measurement, feedback, incentives.

Government strategy, policy planning

KPMG’s Government Strategic Requirements Framework (GSRF) provides an environment for the future-oriented planning of government policies, strategies and concepts in alignment with the requirements of the government sector. Key areas of strategic support:

  • Implementation (system of tools, regulation, financing),
  • Back-testing (evaluation and monitoring).
