Our Approach

Our approach is based on what we call ‘Coherence Premium’.

We know why strategies fail: They fail when companies don’t give sufficient attention and weight to their differentiating capabilities and how these capabilities should fit together to form a mutually reinforcing system. Because this blind spot is so common in corporate strategy, the rewards are all the more immense for companies that manage to align their key capabilities.

At MC&Co., we work with our clients to develop a coherent, capabilities-driven strategy that aligns at every level. Only a coherent company — one that pursues a clear strategic direction, builds a system of differentiating capabilities consistent with that direction, and sells products and services that thrive within that system — can reliably and sustainably outpace competitors.

Sustainable, superior returns accrue to organizations that focus on what they do best. The truth is that simple, and yet it’s incredibly hard to internalize. It is the rare company indeed that focuses on “what we do better than anyone” in making every operating decision across every business unit and product line. Rarer still is the organization that has aligned its differentiating internal capabilities with the right external market position. We call such companies “coherent.” We aim to help companies figure out what they’re really good at and then developing those capabilities (three to six at most) until they’re best-in-class and interlocking. From there, strategy becomes a matter of aligning that distinctive capabilities system with the right marketplace opportunities — and the market rewards them with outsize returns.

That is what we call the “coherence premium” — and at MC&Co., we help each client find it, measure it and boost it.
