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

This combination of diverse experience, underpinned by our rigorous military methodology, enables us to work with clients in the most complex environments, understanding, managing and treating risks, which may not always be apparent to the boardroom.”Co-Founder General Sir Richard ShirreffNATO’s Ex-Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe
“Strategia is different from other risk management companies because unlike the traditional - audit led - ‘left to right’ process, we think ‘right to left’; linking 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
