STRATEGY, PLANNING & EXECUTION
We work with our clients to design an integrated strategy to enable the transfer, treatment, toleration or termination of risks and to assist with the execution of the strategy. Our rigorous approach to strategy design is drawn from the established military methodology of campaign planning – combined with sector, regional and technical expertise – and widely accepted Balanced Scorecard methodology, to execute strategy and to measure its effectiveness.
We use wargaming and ‘red-teaming’ to stress-test and evaluate plans against different scenarios, to expose unidentified risks and potential opportunities.

“Strategia is different from other risk management companies because unlike the traditional - audit led - process, we link risk to strategy. We also believe that risk can't be addressed in ‘silos’ as too often it is the combination of risks that are the most toxic.”Co-Founder Iain PickardFormer COO at Marsh UK, Change Director for Aon UK and Head of Financial Services at RSM
