  15. 15. 15 Helping you to capture new market opportunities, de-risk operations to enhance productivity. Consumer demand is expanding along with the middle class in developing markets, as is the competition and business climate. These factors make it critical to have precision when it comes to operating in this markets, from developing the right products and services, delivery and post sales support. At SSCG, we believe that understanding market constraints, creativity and innovation play an important role in establishing required operation plans for your organisation and allocation of resources to foster sustainable growth. The pressure to crack open markets in developing countries, particularly those at the middle and bottom of the pyramid, is driving a surge in business-model innovation. The economic slowdown in developed markets is forcing companies to modify their operation models or create new ones. In addition, the rise of new technology-based and low-cost rivals is threatening incumbents, reshaping industries, and redistributing profits. Indeed, the ways by which organisations create and capture value is undergoing radical transformation worldwide. At SSCG, we draw upon our global and local knowledge, market and industry insights to help organisations enhance their operation capabilities, manage risks, strengthen controls, grasp opportunities and achieve full potential particularly across multiple countries in Africa. We are highly integrated across the region, which is very significant for our clients and to ensure that we retain consistent and quality standards everywhere.
