PwC is expanding its advisory activity in Poland and is launching Strategy&, PwC’s global strategy consulting business. The Strategy& Poland team, which already counts several dozen people, will be headed by Krzysztof Badowski.
Strategy& helps clients support their business from strategy development to implementation, combining the strategic expertise of Strategy&'s competence centres with the broad capabilities of PwC network. Strategy& is the only full-scale strategy firm within a professional services network worldwide. It comprises more than 3000 specialists working in international hubs who solve the most difficult strategic challenges and support companies in complex transformation projects.
"I am convinced that the Strategy& Poland team will be a valuable addition to our global network. Working together under the joint brand Strategy& brand is a clear step forward, as the Polish team has a strong strategic background and a well-established strategy house culture. Together we can optimally combine our strengths and support our clients in their most important transformational challenges, from sustainability to digitization to resilience"
"The strength of Strategy& is its international, global perspective, which means an in-depth understanding of complex contemporary world phenomena, rapid exchange of experience, and joint development of modern business support tools. Joining Strategy& will enable us to export our unique expertise beyond the CEE region. It is a chance for our team to continue dynamic growth and increase our capabilities through access to the best international practices and experiences, and also expand our strategic support in industries where our presence has been limited so far"
Krzysztof is one of the leading strategy consultants in Poland with over 20 years of experience. For the last eight years he has been building the Strategy & Operations team in PwC Polska, and before that he managed branches of international strategic consulting companies in Poland. The portfolio of the Polish branch of Strategy & Operations includes, among others, services related to:
➤ business strategy,
➤ revenue management,
➤ operational excellence
➤ customer loyalty
➤ digital adoption,
➤ transaction support.
"As we enter the Strategy& network, we first intend to leverage our unique expertise in areas related to Revenue Management (Retail Growth Toolkit - it's a platform that allows you to effectively manage promotions based on artificial intelligence and advanced data analytics) or Customer Loyalty, among others. There is a big demand for services of this type among global clients"
Wider access to knowledge, experience and references from Strategy&'s global network, together with greater access to global experts and projects, is also an opportunity for further business development in Poland.
"The reason for launching the Strategy& division is our clients' increasing demand for global expertise related to strategy consulting. Joining forces with Strategy& and PwC is a win-win for all stakeholders. We are certain that Polish consultants, being part of the global strategy consulting network, will gain new experience and further develop for the benefit of all the clients we serve in Poland and in the region"
"Our goal is to share vision, knowledge and inspiration, as well as people on projects, so that Krzysztof's team benefits from global collaboration and improves the quality of solutions delivered. Combining the strategy expertise with PwC's other advisory services allows us to support clients with their business strategy, as well as their technology usage needs and operational and regulatory services"
In addition to Krzysztof Badowski, Maciej Kroenke is a partner in the Strategy& team. Maciej has many years of experience in managing strategic, operational and organizational projects in the Retail & Consumer sector in Central & Eastern Europe. The team also includes individuals with experience gained in a number of global strategy consultancies.
