We call our operating model ‘borderless consulting’ - which means each project team is staffed from across our global office network, bringing international experience and streamlined collaboration to meet the needs of our global clients. An EDC consulting engagement typically includes four destinct project phases:
We start with a short and intensive discovery phase to spend time with you and learn about your business challenges. We quickly identity data required to test and validate emerging hypotheses. In our experience, building a strong data foundation is vital to build confidence and ensure project success.Connect with us
Next, we like to let the facts do the talking. We spend time to examine and analyse the numbers. We use a variety of analytical tools and research methods. Often, we conduct additional primary research such as surveys and qualitative interviews to further inform our emerging recommendations.Connect with us
Based on the insights and data analysis, we will build out our recommendations, identifying and prioritising opportunities, creating and defining strategies, and developing detailed implementation roadmaps. We work closely with you with weekly project update calls, and more in-depth workshops at key milestones. The meeting cadence is designed to ensure full alignment with you throughout the duration of the project.
We provide support at every level of the client organisation, from advising senior management to training to upskill operational staff on key capabilities. We will work collaboratively with you to achieve success. We prioritise low hanging fruit to deliver quick wins which in turn builds confidence and commitment needed to achieve sustainable change and success in the long-term.Connect with us
