Services - Strategy
Increasingly service is the key differentiator for high technology companies. Either through the need to drive an ever higher percentage of the profit through service, or the fact that in progressively commodity markets service is the differentiator.
Developing a successful services strategy requires the understanding of where your competitors are. It also helps to have good knowledge of other industries and high tech markets in order to develop the paradigm shift that will set you apart from the competition. However, it is most important to have a clear understanding of where your business is currently to enable you to practically deploy the strategy.
MGH is able to bring the facilitation skills and cross industry understanding, to help you create an industry leading strategy. We can also help you understand the gap between where you are and where you want to be and help you create sensible deployment programmes.
