Key Person Hire Building A Digital Consulting Firm From Scratch
A well-known British company wanted to become a consulting powerhouse. And they weren’t doing anything by halves – they’d appointed a brand new board and brought in Mckinsey to mastermind their transformation. They tasked us with finding 30 of the industry’s best minds to form a brand new digital consulting business.
The Challenge The Challenge
Our client didn’t just want us to break out our phystech toolkit and extend their current working culture. They wanted to create a brand new culture. They needed ambitious outliers who could change the market’s perception of their brand. 30 fearless, ego-less experts – the kinds who can build an entire brand around them, but still write their own RFPs.
Oh and we only had 90 days to do it.
How We Tackled It How We Tackled It
We set about testing the DNA of the senior leadership and looking for the talent they’d need for each stage of their journey.
Digital consulting was still an emerging discipline, so we studied our client’s business model and worked with them on a vertical and horizontal service design.
Once we understood what sucess needed to look like, we grabbed our hefty phone book and scoured the international market for suitable talent.
We brought in leaders for each sector – from heads of financial services and insurance to heads of cloud and engineering. And we handpicked every member of each team.
We Stuck To An Ambitious But Manageable 90 Day Plan To
The Result The Result
We successfully established a brand new team of 30 experts, meticulously matched to the client’s business plan and working DNA. We did it well within the 90-day target, and the client got a decent chunk of their budget back in change.
