First Cut Strategy

When Houghton Street Partners makes an investment into an investee company, the target company usually would not have an updated corporate strategy. Therefore, it would not be possible for Houghton Street Partners to use make functional improvements and align it to a current corporate strategy.


The First Cut Strategy methodology allows us to do a quick strategic review which is not thoroughly comprehensive but contains the critical components that would enable us to align and develop our 6 functional strategies, IT Strategy, Process Strategy, Accounting & Visualisation Strategy, Advertising & Branding Strategy, Innovation & Design Strategy and Digitisation Strategy that would enable us to make improvements to the company.
