Unlocking value in africa
How do we unlock value?
We do this in many ways. For instance, we do it when we figure out the mobile entry strategy for a bank operating in a fast-growing market. When we provide a litigation-proof analytical foundation for a regulator wishing to reduce mobile-phone termination rates, saving low-income consumers hundreds of millions of dollars a year. We unlock value when we devise a horticulture strategy for a large East African country that can create 100 000 jobs. We unlock value when our analysis prompts the restructuring of a water scheme to serve thousands more households in more needy areas. These are just four examples drawn from our large archive of case studies.
