Members of our team worked directly with the CEO over a two year period, developing a new strategic framework for the organization. The assignment involved undertaking a thorough review of the seaborne metallurgical coal and steel industries and developing a strengthened and more sustainable market positioning for Elk Valley Coal – becoming a critical mass supplier in this global industry. Members of our team then led a series of workshops with the Elk Valley EXCO team to refine the company vision, mission, goals and strategies to win. They also worked with the leadership team on process improvements needed for implementation of the strategy.
On the basis of this work, and the new more profitable future we identified, an acquisition was undertaken by one of the company’s minority shareholders. The company was eventually sold for US $14 billion, one of the largest M&A deals in Canadian mining history.
In this assignment members of our team worked with Teck’s Chief Operating Officer to plan and implement the company’s divisional restructuring into commodity-based business units (SBU’s). The assignment involved base-lining the organization, helping to design a new matrix structuring, and strategic framework for the operating units which integrated the SBU’s with the centralized Corporate Services.
Members of our team worked with a Senior VP devising a strategy for EPCOR. The company devolved into a publically traded power generation public company (Capital Power Inc.) and a more dedicated civic owned water and electrical distribution company, EPCOR. Working with colleagues we analyzed the market realities for each company and developed two separate strategic plans, one for each organization.
