Business Planning and Modeling

Business Planning

Coleago’s business planning process focuses on achieving competitive advantage and enhancing shareholder value. We ensure that our client’s vision, mission and goals are achieved through an integrated approach to strategy, marketing, operational and financial planning. Coleago develops analytically robust yet practical business plans that clients can implement with confidence. Our business planning expertise is enhanced by our demand analysis, forecasting and business modelling skills. Well researched and structured methodology instils confidence in decision makers and stands up to scrutiny from investors and lenders alike.

Our business planning services can support fund raising, privatisations, licence applications, developing MVNO business plans or indeed any new business.

Business Modeling

Coleago is a market leader in developing Excel business models for clients in the telecommunications sector. Our Mobile Business Planning Model has been licensed to over 20 operators around the world and we have developed bespoke models for clients in the mobile, cable, fixed wireless and traditional fixed sectors. Clients have asked us to develop everything from user-friendly budgeting tools for voice and advanced data services to sophisticated forecasting tools.

Coleago has also developed MVNO financial models and cable and television channel models using our MAPPED business modelling methodology.

Our expertise in both business planning and modelling is reflected in The Economist’s ‘Guide to Business Planning’ and ‘Guide to Business Modelling’ – authored by Graham Friend and Stefan Zehle, the founders of Coleago Consulting.
