Progressive deregulation in the industry has revealed that there is little perceived product/brand differentiation in traditional utilities (water, electricity, gas, etc.). The customer, used to contracting utilities from government-designated suppliers, does not associate certain qualities with the supplying brand as it is the case in other industries. This has coincided with the emergence and consolidation of technological advances and mass data processing capabilities, as well as with a changing environment as a result of regulatory changes, a modified global energy map and a complex economic situation that affects energy consumption.
These circumstances pose many management challenges related not only to the effort of “defending” the current positioning and to diversification, but also with how to measure, support and effectively manage business while properly monitoring and controlling the various risks and opportunities associated with these activities, and ensuring best practices are implemented so as to comply with business obligations.
Also, corporations are facing a digital transformation challenge caused by both the macroeconomic situation and multiple merger and acquisitions as well as business segregation processes that require focusing on improving efficiency and creating value for clients and shareholders. In this respect, organizations are focusing their attention on innovative actions that maximize their potential.
At Management Solutions, we help to maximize each company’s core business and join the company in its diversification challenges by optimizing its potential and taking account of the structural impacts on its organization.
In order to achieve success, we help clients redesign their value chain in terms of operational excellence and technological innovation, as well as appropriate management of their cost structure and risks.
