One Rexam – the holy grail.

Many people believe that success hinges on having the right strategy. Others swear it’s all in the execution. But others would say it’s a bit more elemental: It’s all about having the right conversations. But what does having the right strategic conversations mean?

Strategy Together Managing Partner Kit Jackson worked with the leadership team at global packaging manufacturer Rexam to get performance back on track and become fit for the future by spearheading a transformation of the organisation’s culture.

In just 3 years Rexam’s share price doubled, operating profit improved by 22% and ROCE increased from 9.5% to 15.5%.

The biggest win according to CEO Graham Chipchase was to see “the whole workforce pulling in the same direction. To get that level of understanding is the holy grail.”

Client Spotlights

Navigating confidently through turbulent times

Finance & Banking: Large Global Bank

We worked with the EVP of a large US bank to align their Global Relationship Management with the new corporate strategy, providing them with a framework to align the businesses to a common set of goals and a way to engage the whole organisation.

This led to a significant increase in internal customer engagement and satisfaction as well as a recognition by the bank of the increased ROI from the programme and gave the organisation and its leadership the confidence to navigate the uncertainty surrounding them.

Regionally aligned to deliver on our ambitions

FMCG: Global Brand Conglomerate

We worked with new regional president who had been challenged with aligning country, category and functional heads around a new regional strategy to  leverage the strengths of the region and deliver significantly increased value from new ways of working.

This led to a regional strategy that leveraged synergies, aligned and engaged leadership, increased the efficiency and effectiveness of cross-organisational governance and accelerated the implementation of new ways of working.
