We help businesses
take better decisions.


  • There is a unique path for every business.
    A path that leads to growth and consumer love.
    The role of strategy is to discover that path.
    A deep understanding of category, culture and consumer will reveal this path.

    Businesses today have unprecedented opportunities at a scale that has rarely, if ever, materialized before. Realizing this opportunity will involve navigating an ever-shifting landscape of consumer preferences, cultural phenomena, and competitive activity.

    The Strategy School was formed for this very task – to help businesses navigate from where they are to where they want to be. We conduct intense data-centric analysis of consumers, culture and category to reveal the unique path to success for our clients. And with a team that has a combined experience of over Fifty-five years working on some of India’s largest and most loved brands we have the tools and the experience to find answers to the questions that businesses are constantly faced with.


We believe in a simple, back-to-the-basics way of working because the simplest of questions often lead to the most revealing answers.
