We deliver business strategy solutions for publishing, media and information companies, libraries and other media-related companies looking to leverage their unique market positions.
The companies we serve generally have specific business issues which require critical and impartial expertise and, in many cases, these issues form the basis for a strategic revision of their business strategy.
Are your assets fully utilized? Are your competitors faster to market? Are your competitors more innovative? Information Media Partners will help you define a workable strategic planning process as well as business opportunities for action. Our approach is progressive, starting with a clear understanding of your current environment including your products, competitive positioning, organization and financial situation.

Lastly, we build a strategy program designed to bridge the gap between your current position and your envisioned environment. There are clients who do not understand what they can achieve and we are often asked to develop a strategic vision for a product line or business unit that doesn’t have an obvious growth path. Solutions in these cases could include new capital investment, divestiture or acquisition (roll-ups) or even result in comparatively radical recommendations.
Information and publishing/media companies have long understood the value of 'content' since it defines the publishing and information industry. With divergent user expectations and multiple access points for content usage/engagement, media companies have to develop content management and creation strategies that allow them complete control and unlimited flexibility.
Information Media Partners can help publishers document existing content management strategies and recommend changes that will support their goals. Often, this process requires strategic thinking about how the publisher wants to engage their target market in the use of their content.
