BUSINESS ARCHEOLOGISTS

The way in which we execute our work is of great interest to our clients, who often ask us to teach their organizations our methods for generating unique and deep business insight.

At the heart of this value lies a deep competence in state-of-the art research, and its application to custom frameworks, developed by our consulting team over decades of practice and implementation.


Methodical and driven by a need to penetrate the most opaque questions, we draw parallels between our growth strategy work and archaeology, an apt comparison for several reasons. Much like a dig site, our work surveys an often unbounded landscape and stakes out a figurative grid to help systematize, prioritize, and sequence the ensuing effort. Next, we carefully dig to varying depths, depending on the site's topography and our pre-existing knowledge of where we are most likely to find relevant information. We apply a variety of specialized tools which allow us to penetrate, sift, and comb through the data with both speed and finesse. Finally, once located and extracted, we assemble these fragments into a framework which allows an otherwise unintelligible picture to emerge.


These four elements – our systematic research process, varying depths, specialized tools, and structured frameworks – constitute our firm’s unique capability in unearthing critical insights.

“I tell people, if you want industry expertise, don’t call these guys. if you want a firm with processes And work ethic to get to the answers in any industry, call them. and they not only get you to the answers, they give you a pathway to execute on them. That’s what’s so valuable.”

Our repeat business is not by accident. It's a result of the approach to our work, which we refer to as Business Archaeology. It’s a combination of process, expertise, tools, and frameworks, and it has translated to billions in growth for our clients.
