Since our founding, we’ve had big goals. It has never been about just building another consulting firm. It’s about making a meaningful difference in the world.

Our Mission

Ineffective and inefficient government operations cost taxpayers billions of dollars every year, and result in unmet citizen needs. We help public sector leaders drive sustained operational excellence within their organizations – deploying effective and efficient management and operational practices, so they can better deliver on their public and social goals.

Our Values

Our vision has always been “to have meaningful positive impact on the well-being of our clients, our people, and society.” Ultimately, that means building a role model firm that always does the right thing; a place where people can realize their true potential and really enjoy their work; a firm that delivers tangible results and meaningful change to issues that matter.

True to our vision, we are proud to say we’ve created a values-based culture that is being recognized for the camaraderie among our people and the passion they have for making a difference. Our people, who are not only brilliant but also down-to-earth, work tirelessly with our clients to solve big problems and drive change. Similarly, our clients are forward thinkers who are willing to challenge the status quo so they can deliver better results and positive impact for citizens and their stakeholders. Together, it all adds up to better results and a better world for all of us.

Results Focused

Helping our clients solve problems is our number one priority. We take on challenging work that ultimately leads to results and positive change.

Entrepreneurial

We empower each other to take ownership and to make positive contributions. We challenge the status quo and believe there is always room for improvement.

Collaborative

We team with our clients, each other, and our partners to produce differentiated results. We value diverse opinions and ideas to generate unique and customized solutions.

Transparent

Our default is to share. We don’t shy away from tough conversations, and believe information must flow in both directions – top down and bottom up.

Flexible & Balanced

We strive to provide each other with an environment that offers challenging opportunities but also a sustainable lifestyle. We value having flexibility in the way we work.

Our Awards

Having a positive impact on society is core to our vision and something that motivates us everyday. Our veteran team of experts, drawn from the top schools and with significant public & private sector expertise from top consulting firms, knows how to navigate the intricate government and nonprofit landscapes and make execution a reality by winning allies at all levels of an organization. Our proven approach and tools, used by dozens of clients including nearly every Federal government agency, across hundreds of engagements, have delivered 5-15X ROI to our clients to date. Our passion wins awards, and we have been recognized as a small firm producing significant results for organizations and employees alike.
