Manufacturing & Industry
From smart sourcing and IoT to the emergence of new B2B and B2C aftermarkets, platform-enabled innovation is disrupting manufacturing industries.
While the traditional manufacturing value chain is likely to remain at the heart of business operations, disruption to any part can have far-reaching effects.
Platforms are now playing an increasingly important role. Optimised distribution, real time monitoring and more efficient sourcing of materials are some of the many growth opportunities.
We help manufacturing businesses need to develop platform capabilities to complement their existing business model.
HOW WE WORK
We have an immediate impact on your organisation. We quickly mobilise the best team for the project and identify key high impact problem areas. We aim to report back with our initial insights and findings within a week of starting the assignment. We are also able to iterate quickly and even work with product teams to prototype solutions and concepts in just a few days.
We know that very few strategic challenges are solved in silos. That's why we combine our economic, regulation, strategy, marketing and technology expertise to craft bespoke solutions for our clients. Operating at the nexus of these different fields allows us to identify and prioritise sustainable high impact strategies.
We are part of a vibrant and innovative ecosystem of investors, entrepreneurs, managers, academics, and policy makers who are shaping the digital revolution. We leverage these relationships for the benefit of our clients and ensure that relevant, actionable market intelligence and analysis is captured in our work.
We have witnessed first-hand the extent to which Internet-enabled firms have disrupted traditional markets. But the digital aspect of this transformation often overshadows what we believe is a deeper shift in value. Digital platforms like eBay, Google or Amazon are not simply recreating traditional business models online, they are creating new platform-powered ecosystems. Uber has no cars, Airbnb has no real estate, and yet by developing, leveraging and connecting communities, these firms are creating billions of economic value. That's why all our consultants have significant digital platform and e-commerce experience - to help you harness the power of platforms to create communities.
