Philosophy

Since 2003 FHC acts as Trusted Advisor für corporate leaders, yet also leads the implementation – often embedded in the client’s team.
FHC covers a broad spectrum of General Management issues: From Corporate Strategy, Digital Transformation, Restructuring, Sales/Marketing Activation to M&A Guidance. Handling “emergency missions to fix business issues” is another area where FHC is called in.

Competences

Strategy Re-alignment

  • Step 1 and crucial success factor needs to be the definition of a sound strategy – based on thorough analysis.
  • Facing tough challenges, today’s business Leaders should expect more than pseudo-academic Powerpoint charts.
  • The resulting strategic choices need to lead to an implementation plan that is effective and executable.
  • This approach applies to all areas of business

From Strategy to Customer Journey

  • Following the defined corporate Strategy, we need to lay out a conceptual framework that guides all individual solutions.
  • Analysis of Target segments will lead to specific issues and benefit barriers and guide the definition of a core benefit – as platform for Campaign and content development.
  • Identifying and optimizing the specific customer journey will be key before engaging into executional development.

Digital Activation/Operational Excellence

  • We develop a synchronized system based on the defined Customer Journey.
  • Yet CAUTION, please: Strategic Clarity/Benefit Focus remain way more important than the ever increasing tech optimization options.
  • So – Let’s make sure to properly define strategic choices first!
