Corporate Strategy and Portfolio Management


Being a good operator is no longer enough—savvy management of the corporate portfolio is crucial to sustained superior value creation. Successful organizations regularly revisit their portfolios to understand the drivers of advantage and identify avenues for future growth. To remain on top in today’s environment, companies should focus on answering several important questions:

  • How can we manage our portfolio for long-term sustainable value creation?
  • Which businesses should be our growth platforms going forward? Which can be our "cash machines?"
  • How should we differentiate goals, metrics, and incentives across the portfolio?
  • What should we do with our non-core operations?
  • If someone else owned our businesses, could they create more value? Why?

We partner with our clients to create practical, "real-world" portfolio moves that deliver tangible value. We integrate multiple perspectives in our portfolio analysis:
