PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) helps the world’s most progressive organisations, of all shapes and sizes, to continuously evolve and adapt in the face of a constantly changing and increasingly complex environment. We take the time to listen and have the courage to debate different points of view – based on independent and challenging insights, supported by facts and industry benchmarks. We deliver results by working with our clients. In particular we help to:
The most effective way to generate growth is to have a clear understanding of the relationship between what customers want and the economics of delivering it. We help clients understand customer needs and apply this insight across their organisations to identify and implement the change necessary to succeed.
People have a profound effect in any business, both in terms of cost and value. They represent one of the biggest financial expenses for most companies and are the most valuable asset of any organisation because it is they who plan, deliver, and sustain business strategy – not systems, processes, or financial assets. But the links between what people are doing at the front line and how this impacts business performance can be difficult to manage and hard to quantify. We help clients maximise human impact to deliver business success.
As organisations try simultaneously to grow revenue, reduce costs and improve control, the need to translate business strategies into actionable management information that can support fast operational and financial decisions has never been greater. We help clients establish performance management frameworks to operationalise business strategy and drive sustainable change in processes and behaviours. What shouldwe be doing? Are we doing it, and if so are we doing it efficiently? If not, what needs to be changed?
Accelerated rates of change, increased business complexity, stringent regulatory requirements and demands for transparency have created an avalanche of new requirements and risks for today’s global corporations. We believe that organisations that consistently evaluate risks when making decisions throughout the enterprise are better positioned to achieve their objectives and maximise business performance. We help clients define their risk appetite and integrate this appetite into business strategy top-down so that all facets of the business consistently apply the desired risk thresholds to decision making. Ultimately this leads to agile, informed risk taking that drives business success and shareholder value.
The pace of regulatory change is not slowing, and while many organisations blame over-regulation for increasing costs and reduced efficiencies, we believe the true culprit is the lack of an integrated, consistent and standardised response. We help clients understand how regulation affects their business and how to manage it sensibly. Our approach allows clients to prevent or recover from regulatory crises; proactively select and implement appropriate processes and technology; and effectively use resources without distracting from revenue generating activities.
