Our seven values are the very foundation upon which we are built. How we choose to live these values shapes our brand in the marketplace, determines how well our clients are served each day and informs all aspects of our culture and working environment.

CLIENT

We are passionate about our clients and proud of the impact we make together.

Our professionals choose to work as consultants because they love the variety and challenges associated with solving difficult problems in different industries. To be successful as a firm we believe that our professionals should:

  1. Describe their own work passionately in terms of benefits to client.
  2. Before, during, and following engagements, focus on outcomes most important to client.
  3. Describe every project situation and decision through the client’s eyes.

INSIGHT

We uncover and address the most challenging problems in ways that impel action.

Developing elegant solutions to difficult client problems is only helpful if they can be implemented in the context of the client organization and have real impact. Therefore, we expect our professionals to:

  1. Persevere to increase understanding and clarity through objective, data-driven problem-solving and analysis.
  2. Help clients see business issues differently and more usefully.
  3. Work with clients in ways that create urgency about the problem and excitement about the path forward.

COLLABORATION

Together we achieve more - by bringing the full power of the firm to everything we do.

Our people bring a vast array of experiences and backgrounds together to make us the firm we are today. In order for us to achieve our goals and to deliver on client expectations we believe that everyone in the firm should:

  1. Acknowledge and makes use of the differing perspectives of others.
  2. Proactively contribute to the shared methods, tools, knowledge and approaches of the Firm.
  3. Act to improve the performance of the team.

OPENNESS

We encourage forthright dialogue and constructive conflict.

Constructive conflict is productive and essential to our culture and critical to ensure that we deliver results for our clients. So we encourage our professionals to:

  1. Communicate confidence vs. arrogance with both clients and colleagues.
  2. When in conflict with others, respectfully engage vs. fight or flee.
  3. Raise important issues with colleagues and clients directly and in a timely manner with the intent of working toward successful resolution.

BALANCE

We balance the interests of our clients, our firm, and ourselves - in that order.

Achieving the right balance between competing priorities will always be a challenge in any business but especially in our industry. However, to succeed as a firm, we believe our professionals must:

  1. Demonstrate responsibility for their own unique life and career priorities, needs and emotional and physical health.
  2. Consider the implications for the client, the firm and self before taking action.
  3. Seeks creative solutions where conflict occurs, focusing on long-term success for our clients, our firm and ourselves.

GROWTH

We learn, teach, and develop capability, courage, and wisdom.

Continuous learning and development is essential for each of us individually and without it we cannot be successful. We ask our professionals to:

  1. Adopt new and better ways of doing things, even if they disrupt conventional methods.
  2. Formally and informally provide useful teaching to help clients and colleagues grow.
  3. Strive to be better by seeking out and acting on feedback.

BOLDNESS

We push our clients and ourselves to think differently and face and act on hard truths.

Sometimes the truth can be hard to accept, but it is important that we deliver tough, relevant messages effectively so that they can be acted upon. So we ask our professionals to:

  1. Have the courage to say and do what is right for the client and firm.
  2. Help clients and colleagues see and seize opportunities.
  3. Take risks to help the firm and our clients succeed together.
