FlevyPro (a subscription service from our partner Flevy) offers a comprehensive library of consulting frameworks, presentations, and business templates. FlevyPro recently surveyed its subscribers and learned their biggest fans are essentially all independent consultants or owners of boutique consulting firms.
So, Why is this the case?
The reason is simple. A core competitive advantage of global consulting firms is they have access to an internal, proprietary database of consulting frameworks and past deliverables. This allows them to deploy inexperienced project teams to clients, because their teams are armed with well-researched and proven methodologies. FlevyPro now provides the smaller firms that same–if not greater–access to a library of consulting frameworks.
After the survey, Flevy has since increased efforts to produce more and more consulting frameworks. They are adding several frameworks every week. These frameworks cover a wide range of management consulting disciplines–e.g. Strategy/Transformation, Lean/OpEx/Process, Digital, Change, Organization, HR/Talent, IT, etc. They are all based on the research of those global consulting firms (including McKinsey, Accenture, and Deloitte) or renown business academics.
You can browse the full library of FlevyPro frameworks here.
