OC&C's capabilities - ranging from transaction to strategy realization - are derived from the skills and dedication of our consultants and years of experience. In our projects, we focus on the issues that are crucial to our clients' future and performance.

OC&C help the board and senior management address complex issues in areas such as:

  • Corporate strategy - what investment and deployment of (usually scarce) resource will produce the greatest shareholder value?
  • Business unit strategy - what's our best route to rapid and profitable growth? A new proposition or being more effective with what we have? Brand extension or change of direction? National or overseas? Organic investment or acquisition?
  • Strategic realisation - how can we most rapidly and effectively achieve our strategic priorities and simultaneously outperform our competitors?
  • Transaction support - how do we make the right deal (acquisition or disposal) and what does it take to make it succeed?
  • Analytics - how can we help clients unlock the potential of big data, analytics and AI to address the most complex strategy questions?

We focus our efforts on the issues that are crucial to our clients' future and performance. 

Corporate strategy

We work with board-level company leaders to help them deliver the best possible return to shareholders. Together, we work on a range of issues from optimising resource allocation to new market entry and acquisitions of other companies, always doing so in a way that is clear, insightful and practical.

M&A and private equity

M&A is difficult. Deals often fail to deliver on expectations when buyer and seller are misaligned or fail to integrate effectively. We bring the experience and vision necessary to handle both of these key elements from initial target identification through to post-merger integration and performance improvement.
