Roland Berger offers five strategies for ensuring flexibility and successful cycle management


  • Check your susceptibility to industry cycles — this is a strategic task.
  • Monitor external and internal indicators and keep an eye on what the competition is up to — this should form the basis for your early warning system and scenario planning.
  • Take appropriate action on costs and sales in order to strengthen your core competences and competitive position.
  • Ensure swift implementation and targeted action against the cycle — both in mergers and acquisitions and elsewhere.
  • Make flexibility a matter for top management.
  • Enhance Your Experience.
