Virtuous Resources: Strategy Consulting

At Virtuous Resources we advise organizations on high-level decisions in an unbiased fashion, using deep industry knowledge to deliver the best results. These are advises which are cut-above the Management Consulting & CXO Advisory, which generally implies advising at the highest-level of a company.

Virtuous Resources work across every industry, with private and public sector bodies on a wide range of issues.

For example, a company is looking to save money in a shrinking market, so it decides to close one of it's manufacturing plants or lease it. They want to know if its feasible to earn a lease rent or decide to close a plant, which of their plants should be closed, how much money it will save them, how much it will cost them, and how they should restructure their supply chain to manage this loss of production - this is where a strategic consultant comes in.

Why do organisations use Virtuous Resources?

Virtuous Resources is brought in on the important decisions that are vital to the future of the company, to make sure every angle is considered and more importantly no blindspots in decision making. They can devote themselves entirely to the question at hand, while executives are normally busy with the actual running of the company. Consultants also offer deep expertise in a particular industry or subject, such as market positioning or restructuring.

There also occasions when consultants fulfil a legal purpose. During a merger, before the transaction is completed, it is illegal to share information between the two companies. Consultants can operate independently, sourcing information from both parties to have a strategy ready for the moment the last document is signed.

What skills do Virtuous Resources add to you ?

Apart from the situational knowledge and problem solving skills, there are a few general skills that are essentially offered:

  • Analytical skills: The ability to collect and analyse large amounts of data, to assess problems and structure solutions and to present information at a range of levels. These skills are assessed in the famous case study interview, used in almost all consulting applications.
  • People skills: Consulting is a client-focused industry and a lot of your time will be spent dealing with management in order to better understand the issues they’re facing. You need to be able to build relationships, be persuasive when necessary and know when to defer.
  • Time management: Strategy consultants work to tight deadlines and missing them is not an option.
  • Flexibity: Even once you’re an expert, there will be plenty more for you to learn. You need to always be aware of your own performance, finding ways to improve.
  • Unbiasedness: Remaining fully focused on your problems / goals yet remaining totally detached allows us to offer truly unbiased advice, in your best interest. Objectivity is what we promote while advising.
