The Roland Berger Italy approach: to make Italian companies competitive in Europe, the new domestic market.
Italy plays a vitally important strategic role within Roland Berger’s global network. Roland Berger is unique among the world’s leading consultancy companies through having originated in Europe, and maintaining this European identity while also considering itself a global player.
The objective of the Roland Berger Italy approach is to aid Italian businesses in staying competitive within the new domestic market: Europe. No Italian company can now succeed if it concentrates too large a percentage of its business in the national market. The logic behind the consolidation that has been taking place across every industrial sector of late is this European outlook.
To achieve this step we strive to evolve beyond the traditonal methods of problem-solving, deriving an approach which we refer to as ‘management syndication’. By applying this approach, the consultant becomes a confidant for the business management’s concerns along the road towards success, and plays an active role throughout this journey.
Building a picture of complete competitiveness is relatively simple. What the upper management of a company really needs is someone who can endorse the strategies to be chosen: management syndication therefore means addressing the management’s concerns and helping to choose between the various strategy solutions.
The term syndication implies a specific assumption of responsibility with respect to the strategic behaviour of a company, namely the task of endorsing that the decisions taken have what it takes to prove sustainable, in the interests of both shareholders and the market.
