Why do most start-ups, product launches, mergers, growth initiatives and exits fail?

Typically, failure is due to ill-conceived strategies and haphazard approaches. To their detriment, companies frequently devise strategies without appropriate information and without consideration to consequences. Few are knowledgeable about a wide variety of methods used to successfully
accomplish similar goals. Even fewer know how to select and modify approaches to effectively
implement them. This results in wasting time, effort and capital wandering down wrong paths.
Most people cannot relinquish their biases and preferences, so they are overly optimistic about their products’ desireability, services’ quality and the price others will pay to purchase their products, service and business. This impairs their judgment and decision-making when defining goals, identifying needs
and developing strategies.
These challenges pose a likelihood of failure that is compounded by entrenched workers being reluctant
to devise and adopt new strategies out of fear or conflicts of interest.

How well are your strategies enabling you to achieve your goals?

Most organizations can significantly benefit from independent critique and guidance when devising strategies to launch, grow, reposition or exit providing products and services to customers near and far. Successful strategy development and execution often requires a highly-qualified outside advisor to provide unbiased situation analysis; guide goal setting; propose strategies and solutions; provide insights about what will work considering the client’s specific needs and desires as well as anticipated actions by competitors and other stakeholders; facilitate decision-making; and cultivate enthusiasm within workforce to adopt and implement the stategy.
Due to her extensive experience successfully positioning clients for growth and exit, clients often request our Corporate Development practice leader Jillian Alexander advise on or lead their Strategy Development initiatives, including:

Conduit Consulting professionals collaborate wtih clients to define, prioritize and achieve their individual, business unit and company-wide goals. We devise strategies and implementation roadmaps that improve clients ability to evolve their organizations and successfully compete. As ours is a fact-based approach, we conduct research and perform analysis as needed. Frequently multiple strategies are devised to be deployed concurrently in an orchestrated fashion. When compiled, these comprise an organization’s game playbook often commonly known as its Strategic Plan. Without the complementary strategy being implemented, it is impossible for the first to achieve its full potential. Unlike many Strategy Consulting firms, Conduit Consulting goes beyond developing strategies; we prioritize and sequence implementation based on client organization’s situation and dynamics.
