What's changing?

Consumer expectations are constantly changing, driven by the increased availability of data, social media and new multi-channel purchasing. This, combined with increasing competition, regulation and continuous pressure to reduce prices, is driving rapid change across these sectors. To be successful, organisations need to develop agile business models that combine effective delivery with increased innovation and a fit-for-purpose cost base.

How we can help

Where we've helped

We have helped organisations across these sectors put in place improved processes, such as new product development frameworks, new operating models, and programme and portfolio management structures. Our focus is on increasing delivery effectiveness. Our consultants have supported the successful delivery of some of our clients' most strategically important initiatives, including multi-billion pound integration programmes, cost transformation and wider business change.

Our work

Achieving Product Development and Launch Excellence

Developing and launching new products is the lifeblood of many businesses; we are all engaged in an innovation war to survive. The marketplace is increasingly dynamic and fiercely competitive due to new disruptors, pricing pressures, digital innovations and more demanding consumers. History is full of examples of companies that failed to innovate and maintain a competitive product portfolio.

Client testimonial

Moorhouse were excellent. They didn't follow the 'land and expand' model and they provided insightful advice that was in the 'real world' rather than from a textbook
