Strategy and Building Value
“You only need two things in life, to know where you are going, and to know that you can park your car when you get there!”
Douglas Adams.

It is vital to formulate and deliver a Company’s business strategy, because if a Company has not defined its business strategy it will not know when it has delivered it!

At Agora Bay we are very keen to work with High Growth Start-Ups, and Growing SMEs to help them define and deliver their business strategy.

We will do this by engaging with the top team to:

  • Deliver a Strategic Requirements exercise- agreeing where the company is now and where it wants to get to. In other words, what would be the perfect outcome?

  • We will agree the Key Strategic Factors that the growth company needs to consider to achieve its perfect outcome.

  • We will define the key Strategic Milestones in order that Strategic success can be targeted and achieved.

  • We will focus intensely on the Key Initial Strategic Steps to ensure that the Company’s strategy delivery journey is started effectively.

  • Where applicable, we will also define a Company’s key business valuation drivers to ensure that the maximum business valuation is achieved at partial or total business exit.
