A key factor of our success is our integrated process approach to strategy development, strategy execution, organizational development tailored to the unique needs of each client. With more than three decades of experience, we have garnered significant insights into designing and implementing strategy development processes which yield actionable strategies that deliver results. Two thirds of our clients are repeat customers, demonstrating the value we provide. Additionally, our collaborative approach is designed to “infuse” your organization with improved capabilities to plan and execute long term strategy and tactical implementation long after we have exited.
We are a boutique consultancy, which means all client engagements are executed by a Principal. While we bring significant subject matter expertise within several of the sectors we serve, our approach is process based tailored to each client’s situation. We combine our collaborative strategy development process with the institutional knowledge that exists within your organization, augmented by subject matters experts from our Expert Network (when required) to address gaps in knowledge or expertise on the strategy team.
