How Strategy Should Work For You?
(May Fountain) -- Corporations are both the drivers and beneficiaries of commercial reality. For independent corporate governance, investment, M&A or contractual engagement purposes, the real test of strategy is its applicability.
Whether strategy is perceived as a choice of some kind; or as one that is shaped by certain forces -- strategy itself can have minimal impact if it does not pass this apparently simple yet extremely real and practical test of the sensible business world: Does strategy work profitably (as chosen or as shaped)?
And so, where strategy comes from may be good to know, but it is only the effect of strategy that is important as it goes down to the root of any corporation itself. Perhaps except only whatever aspirations that corporations may have, the most critical end-aim is profitability (without profit it would be hard to sustain any aspirations anyway).
In our M&A advisory services, when it comes to strategy, May Fountain's signature style of approach has been proven particularly helpful for clients: In any specific situation, we maintain an objective perspective to focus primarily on scrutinizing only the most critical issues -- to concisely 'read' the relevant situation -- by deploying a series of smart questions to elicit or stimulate smart answers, with profound emphasis on: Why do it (this deal, this transaction, and so forth)? How can it be profitably integrated into the relevant corporation's overall sustainable growth map?
We are confident that true strategy (however chosen or shaped) must have the kind of specific effect capable of being materialized into tangible results. Only with that can corporations make any real sense of their very existence in this highly competitive and disruptive business world.
