Our flexible staffing model and access to top talent ensures that every project can deliver great results at a cost mid-market companies can afford.
All Maven consultants have a minimum of 2 years of consulting experience with either Bain, BCG or McKinsey. In addition, most also have several years of experience in executive leadership roles in Fortune 1000 companies. A blend of expert problem solving and industry experience is a powerful resource.
With Maven you will experience a passion and dedication to delivering results, not just reports. Our approach will be thoughtful, analytic and pragmatic. We will have a bias toward action. We are relentless about creating results.
With companies both large and small, we always find opportunities to improve profitability. We start with a comprehensive diagnostic of the business to identify a long list of areas for increased efficiency, lower costs or higher prices. Then we focus our efforts on the most promising areas and build a detailed roadmap for capturing the value. We typically find opportunities to lower overall costs 5%-15%.
We work with companies on their strategy when the path forward for them is not clear. Some have too many opportunities and need help on where to focus. Others are looking for new ideas. Whether you need help clarifying your overall company strategy or just a strategy for part of the business, Maven can help bring analytics and structure to those strategic choices.
Most mid-market companies struggle to execute on major company initiatives. Working on the business is so much more challenging than working in the business. Maven offers an annual program to provide the training, coaching, tools, structure, coordination, discipline & accountability needed to get all those projects done. When was the last time your company got 90% of the projects for the year done?
Whether your company has been doing annual planning for years or if you are new to the process, Maven Associates can help you have a productive kick-off to your year. We facilitate customized annual planning sessions designed to meet the unique objectives of the company’s leaders. Having a 3rd party facilitate your planning meeting allows everyone on the management team to participate equally.
Maven consultants are experts across a wide range of industries and have a full toolkit of capabilities.
