What We Do:
Executives always have gaps and require growth in their skills and these needs change over time as the business or environment changes. Skills needed to start a business are very different from those needed to grow. We walk alongside leaders keen to learn and grow.
Creating a business from the ground up is both an art and a science and is always unique. We specialize in creating a framework that allows the entrepreneur to do what they are good at - taking products and solutions to market to solve problems - while we help bring order and structure that reduces risk and optimizes opportunity.
Growing and scaling an organization is a process with challenges and pitfalls. Critical steps that cannot be skipped without consequences. Through our proven methodology, VGS specializes in helping clients understand their current reality and the path ahead. VGS helps map out timing and phasing of critical changes, carefully balancing the pace of growth with capability and investment.
Whether growing or sliding back, identifying and implementing effective growth or turn-around strategies can be challenging. We bring first-hand experience of navigating major change and organization design in diverse settings in order to guide, encourage and equip the leadership.
More and more business owners are looking for an effective strategy to integrate profit-driven decisions with greater, global purpose. In turn, this has the effect of attracting investors,staff and enhancing the product proposition to their business clients.
VGS engages with innovative companies to embed social platforms within their core business model, guiding them to impact their communities beyond a traditional CSR approach.
How We Do It:
With our mantra of THINK BIG, START SMALL, SCALE FAST, we adapt and apply our unique methodologies to a range of contexts - start-up, scale-up and turn-around. We work closely with the Founder/CEO and core teams to assess their current reality, surface their key priorities and deliver tailored solutions for their specific journey stage.
For businesses operating in emerging markets, our methodologies would be tailored to include contextual risk analysis, community engagement strategies, business continuity strategies and operational support.
Where We Work:
VGS works with leaders and organizations focusing on world changing ideas regardless of where they are located. Based in Asia and the USA, to date our primary focus has been Africa and the USA but we have had a presence in over 10 countries.
