Strategic Advice

The main reason for obtaining a strategic advisor is to seek independent expertise outside of the organisation. Strategic advice should provide the organisation with knowledge, understanding and strategic thinking of the industry or management. The implementation of a strategic advisor allows their qualities to compliment the existing board of directors and not mask gaps in knowledge or skill in the main board. The strategic advisor strengthens the existing board, however does not interfere with the authorities of the existing board. They facilitate and focus to challenge research and intelligence work being done in the organisation, thus avoiding “groupthink” and giving direction on big picture issues.

CP-SIIG can either provide an individual strategic advisor, or collectively and uniquely, amalgamate a group of our providers who can easily function as an advisory board to offer assistance with anything from managing human resources to influencing the direction of regulators. Our accomplished experts are truly able to offer innovative advice and dynamic perspectives on strategic direction, guide quality improvement, and assess program effectiveness.

An advisory board selected from our service providers may be a more suitable solution to organisations who seek to access high-quality advice and networks in the industry. They can also act as an external group able to provide non-biased information and advice.

Services which we can provide include:

  • developing an understanding of the organisation, market and industry trends
  • provide “wise counsel” on issues raised by owners, directors and management
  • provide unbiased insights and ideas from a third point-of-view (not involved in the operation of the organisation)
  • encourage and support the exploration of new ideas
  • act as a resource for executives
  • provide social networking platform for directors and the company
  • encourage the development of a governance framework that enable sustainable growth of the company
  • monitor organisation performance
  • impose challenges to directors and management that could improve the organisation
