PRINCETON, NJ (February 21, 2013) –Kepner-Tregoe (KT), the global capability development and consulting company, today announced that its U.K. team has been named a finalist for the 2013 Management Consultancies Association (MCA) Best Strategy Project Award for their work with the DAL Group on the development of an agricultural investment strategy. For the past 16 years, the MCA Awards have been the benchmark of quality within the consulting industry recognizing the best strategy project of the past year.

Kepner-Tregoe worked with the DAL Group, Sudan’s largest privately held commercial organization, to design their move into agriculture. KT took DAL’s leaders through a robust strategic decision making process to determine what their optimal strategy for agriculture should be. Initial results from this strategy suggest clear signs of success with the development of an export market for locally grown alfalfa, the modernization of dairy production and the development of programs to support ground-nut farming. 

“Having spent time on really understanding our organisation and what for them was a very new and unusual business environment, the KT consultants brought the right minds together, challenged our thinking and allowed us to arrive at well-informed and powerful strategic choices," stated DAL's Managing Director, Ihab Daoud Abdellatif. "The consensus built within our leadership team and KT’s structured and disciplined approach to implementation is helping our ambitious strategy for agriculture become a reality."

According to KT's Sam Bodley-Scott, principal and director of strategic consulting, "Kepner-Tregoe is honored to be nominated for Best Strategy Project with a great partner like the DAL Group. Many excellent consultants from our practise have worked diligently to bring outstanding results to this engagement."

KT will join fellow Strategy finalists Deloitte with Facebook, Elix-IRR with Standard Bank and PwC with Vodafone, Telefonica UK, Everything Everywhere at the MCA Awards ceremony and dinner on 18 April.
