Globalization, competition, recession, credit-crunch, new rules, digital world and high-tech frenzy, severe economic crises and high market volatility are the main features of today’s chaotic economic life. Globalization and Competition is increasing across all sectors. New technologies and responsive capital markets have led to an unsustainable growth exposing the limitations of corporate governance and financial controls. Strategies and structures based on analytical thinking need to be reinvented through a systemic approach and sustainability must be ensured at all organizational levels. Business problems are nowadays complex and they require a holistic approach with a solid theoretical background yet practicality, speed and realism.
Alex helps organizations, mostly operating in Retail (Stores, Hospitality, F&B, Banking, etc.) , through consulting, to improve their performance, through identifying existing organizational problems and the development of plans for improvement. Having completed with his firm STIRIXIS Group more than 400 different projects in Retail and from Scandinavia to the UAE, there is a vast experience and cross-functional expertise he possesses. But Alex has also passed through all the stages of Retail business development, from Strategy, Market Analysis and Trade area Analysis, to construction and operations. The Systems Thinking tools he has designed, help also to ensure long standing sustainability and growth. Alex and his team do not base their solutions on best practices like most Management Consulting Gurus and Firms do. In a complex environment, multi-parameter remedies are never repeatable or have the same results. Businesses are unique. Their organizations change not only minute by minute but depending on the view point the consultant has. Only if the whole system is optimized to produce the desired output and trained to sustain its performance, is consulting successful.
Alex also provides a wider range service scope with interim management solutions, turnaround management, restructuring and process-reengineering projects, organizational change management consulting, strategy development and operational improvement services. Through his own proprietary methodologies or frameworks Alex guides the identification of problems, and forms the basis for recommendations for more effective or efficient ways of performing work tasks.
