It’s All About Management

If you’re trying to understand how a business works – its strategy, management structure, and operations – a career in management consultancy is what you’re looking for.

Management consultancy firms help enterprises boost their performance and grow by solving issues and innovating new and better ways of doing things. It’s not only in the private sectors either – several firms work with public sector organisations to expedite developments in their services and, when possible, reduce costs and make savings.

Management Consultancy firms offer services across all possible areas of business – from HR and marketing, to IT and finance or even media management. The wide range of consulting work makes it a lucrative career, offering a variety of projects, challenges and opportunities for self-development. This might involve working all globally with multinational clients, even if you don’t join one of the big firms.

Management consulting is the practice of helping organizations to drastically better their performance, operating mainly through the analysis of existing organizational bottlenecks and the development of plans for growth. Organizations may call upon the services of management consultancy firms for a number of reasons, which may include gaining external (and presumably objective) consultation and access to the consultants’ specialized expertise.

As a result of their exposure to, and relationships with a whole lot of organizations, consulting firms are typically aware of industry “best practices.” However, the exact nature of situations under consideration may limit the ability to transfer such practices from one organization to another.

Consultancies may also provide organizational modification management assistance, development of training skills, process analysis, technology implementation, strategy development, or operational improvement services. Management consultancy firms often bring their own proprietary techniques or frameworks to drive the identification of issues, and to serve as the basis for recommendations for more effective or efficient ways of performing work tasks.

A CLOSER LOOK INTO THE WORLD OF ETHNIC MARKETING

If you see the world around us, you would have noticed a lot has changed over the past few years. Technology has always been used to create a more connected world and has always been used to make sure that communication is easier and faster. With this growth in technology, the world has today truly become borderless. And many people have benefited from this, mainly marketing agencies. A borderless world gives companies a large market and this in turns leads to success in a business. However, to make sure a company markets to each area properly there is a need to practice Ethnic Marketing.

Ethnic marketing is the process of creating marketing campaigns that are specific to different ethnicities or audiences. Ethnic marketing has always been important and has taken precedence even more so over the past few years. An ethnic marketing campaign will have to take into the culture, perceptions, language, beliefs and motives of the marketing before creating a campaign to sell a product or service. An ethnic marketing plan usually has two levels. The first level will look at the historical culture of the place and how the local brands are working in it. The second will look at how much the market has been globalized and how it responds to the changes in the world. With both these aspects in mind, an ethnic marketing plan will be created.

Let’s take the example of Ethnic Marketing in Australia. Imagine that an Indian brand wants to expand their reach to Australia. They will first have to understand the internal culture and language of Australia and then create an umbrella plan that will meet the locals’ needs plus have a global feel.

With all this information in mind, if you or your firm is planning ethnic marketing in Australia or London, it is important to make sure your plan is smart & sensitive. Happy marketing!

Strategic Planning And How It Affects Success

With the amount of options we as humans get on a daily basis, there are many ways to approach a problem. Though there are many ways to reach this final solution, one path is usually the most effective – cost & implementation wise. How does one find that path? How does one use their resources in the best way to reach their final goal? This is where the strategic planning comes in. Strategic planning is the process through which an organization defines its strategy and goal and makes sure that all the future decisions they take are in line with this set strategy. Companies opt for strategic management firms when they are confused about what decision to make and need to get a clear outline for their planning process.

Your strategic management firm while creating your plan will complete these 2 broad steps – Formulation and Implementation. Formulation is the process in which your consultant comes up with the plan of action. They do this by assessing your resources and understanding the goals of your organization. The second process – Implementation is the process in which the plan takes a physical form and is actually carried out. The implementation process is an on-going process that always changes. If certain aspects of the plan are not working, the consultant can go and tweak it for better results. During the implementation process, the plan must always be reviewed to ensure success.

Strategic management services help many different types of businesses from financial corporations to advertising companies. While strategic planning, make sure you and your company answer the following 5 questions – Where am I? What is Important? What do I want to achieve? Who does that? How is it going?. These 5 questions allow you to create the broad outline within which you can incorporate more information. So the next time you’re wondering where to start your planning, follow this advice. A good plan is just a read away!
