Strategy & Digital

I help the General and Operational Departments to define their their Master Plans, to perform their Strategic Planning and to manage their Digital Initiatives. My approach is based on 20 years of experience, on active listening and on the search for actions rather than principles

Why I can help you define your strategic and digital objectives


Over the past 20 years, many Strategic Planning and Master Plan definition missions, in start-ups, MidCaps or Large Groups. Definition of Corporate, Product/Business or IT strategies


A strategy is only relevant if it allows a solution to a real problem. Listening to Managers, but also to the Market, Customers and Partners, is the key to start on a solid basis


The quality of a strategy is not measured by the number of slides, but by how actionable it is. I always translate the strategic axes into action plans and check that they are useful, realistic and achievable
