Business School Academics
Strategy Consulting Group (SCG) was formed in 1995 by a small group of business school academics teaching at the MBA, Executive MBA, and doctoral levels. The purpose was to offer consultancy services in the broad areas of Strategy Development, Execution, and Strategic Leadership. We are still a small group of experts with terminal degrees and professional experience in the field of Business Policy and Strategic Management. Lately, we have added Information Sciences (Artificial Intelligence) to our capabilities.
Our services broadly include helping clients develop sound business and corporate strategies, organizational mechanisms, performance assessment criteria, and leadership skills for effective strategy execution. Services in these areas are primarily through executive seminars and management reports following a strategic audit of client operations. For small entrepreneurial ventures, we prepare business plans and guides for plan implementation.
