Our Strategy Consulting Expertise

9BS Group capabilities have helped a lot of clients in every industry develop and deliver winning strategies.

Fundamentals of Growth

Only 1 in 9 companies succeeds in achieving sustained growth. We help companies grow by defining and focusing on their core.

Business Unit Strategy

Effective strategy for business units requires making proprietary decisions about where to play and how to win. The goal is to enable a business to reach its full economic potential.

Corporate Strategy

Corporate strategy involves a proprietary set of actions that enables a company to be worth more than just the sum of its parts. The most critical role of the center is to help business units achieve leadership positions.

Founder’s Mentality

To win in the long term, most companies need the cost advantages and scale of global incumbents. Yet, in achieving that scale, companies often lose what we call the Founder’s Mentality—the very core strengths and values that helped them succeed.

How can we help you?

Applying an outside-in perspective and helping clients achieve growth are fundamental to our approach at 9bs Group. With our team of global experts, 9bs Group brings depth of experience in the following areas:

  • Customer insights and segmentation

    We help clients understand customer needs and behaviors using our System approach and develop actionable segmentation from the resulting insights. We help clients define the target customer or “sweet spot”—the area of distinct advantage over competitors—to inform business decisions and investment allocation.

  • Product and category management

    We help firms break down barriers to innovation and improve ongoing customer-led product development so their value proposition is differentiated and meets customer needs.

  • Pricing

    We help resolve the pricing paradox—pricing is almost always the #1 profit lever, yet it remains under-developed in most companies—by building long-term pricing capabilities and capitalizing on in-year-revenue opportunities.

  • Sales and channel effectiveness

    We help companies identify quick, targeted, customized solutions as well as strategic and operational improvements to boost under-performing sales organizations.

  • Marketing and brand strategy

    We help companies align marketing and brand strategy with overarching business objectives; ensure marketing investments are generating highest returns and reinforcing the brand positioning; and build a loyal customer base through branding that cultivates a strong, trusted image.

  • Customer experience

    We work with companies to develop a series of positive interactions with the customer to earn their advocacy and inform consistent delivery of experiences to drive top-line growth.

  • Loyalty

    We help companies nurture promoters—loyal customers who are more profitable, and who are active proponents of your business in good times and bad.

  • Market strategy

    We help companies build powerful, integrated go-to-market systems that build a bridge between a company’s strategy and the exceptional customer experiences that are the ultimate driver of customer advocacy and loyalty.

Customer-centric businesses build a virtuous cycle we call the “customer wheel.” We help companies at every stage of growth, developing custom solutions and collaborating with all levels of the organization.

We help organizations make critical decisions related to sustainability strategy, the environmental and social impact of operations, stakeholder engagement, and sustainability-related growth and cost opportunities. We work to ensure that sustainability efforts are anchored in business fundamentals and demonstrate a clear return on investment—and that those efforts are then firmly embedded within our clients’ strategy and operations. Our teams specialize in a few key areas:
