Doers, Thinkers and Strategizers

Our Offerings

Areas of Practice

Our consultants have prior work experience in the following areas, and we’ve been working hard in and out of the classroom through pro gratis projects with real clients to enhance our knowledge and experience so we can provide you with following services:

 

Human Capital

With the importance of understanding the power of people and how they contribute to an organization, we can help to handle aspects of organizational structure and change, and recommend how best to utilize an institution’s most valuable asset – its people. With several consultants choosing to make this service area their area of specialty, we understand that building a strong HR strategy is key to an organization's success. Because of prior experience and a couple of smart MIPC participants who interned in the human capital field, we can assist you with analyzing talent strengths and needs, ensure that you're building a team and HR function that directly ties to business and growth strategies, or simply provide research.

 

Finance

The world of finance seems constantly in-flux, with regulations and requirements changing each year. Fortunately, we have a few consultants who love numbers, budgets, and balance sheets, which means we can help you research, analyze, and/or assess your organization’s financial challenges and opportunities so you can make the best decisions that lead your company to continued success. With backgrounds and internship experience in financial corporate strategy, along with prior years of experience in the finance field, we can help you examine corporate strategy, cash flow management, and capital markets, and can assist with creating a financial strategy that aligns with your business and growth plan.

 

Marketing

Demystifying the ever-changing and pervasive technology-driven art of marketing, we have experience that helps us tackle the complex nuances of marketing consulting in both private and public arenas. Several of our consultants have 3-5 years of marketing experience and many are working hard to tackle that covetable data analytics knowledge. Because of this, we understand that marketing is more than just creating unique ads; in fact, more than ever marketing is about really knowing your customer. By working with data and utilizing some really nifty analytics, we can provide research and recommendations you need to create a solid pricing strategy, positioning plan, or the most cost- effective way for you to add value to your consumer.

 

Digital Media & Technology

The internet, software, and technology are so pervasive that we can’t remember having ever lived without them. They make our lives simpler, but behind the curtain are fluctuating challenges in protection, monetization, and implementation; challenges we are studying within our MIPC program and we’ve seen in some of the hands-on project work we’ve done for our pro gratis clients. While we continue to work toward our Digital Media & Technology merit badges, we can help identify key digital and tech strategies if you're new to the game.

 

Strategy

Applicable across every sector, both public and private, Strategy Consulting encompasses all salient aspects of a business or organization. Developing an iron-clad business strategy is imperative to the health of a company, and we view ourselves as strategy surgeons in-training. With a group of consultants working in various strategy roles for the past year, we can help research and recommend the tools you need to stay healthy in the future. We're driven by our insatiable intellectual curiosity, and being a small part of a holistic strategy solution that delivers real results for companies big and small really piques our interest.

 

Economics

Economics is a lot more than supply and demand curves, and while we love price and quantity efficiency as much as the next person, we're more focused on how economics can impact your business. We are more than happy to look at a lot of data, do a lot of analysis, and then help pinpoint potential opportunities for your company to grow. Wondering what might happen if you decide to cut the price of your product by 25 percent or add a new line of goods? We are able to help you do the research to determine what that might mean for your bottom line.

 

 

Federal

Located in the heart of DC, we're surrounded by numerous federal and public organizations hard at work to make the country, and the world, a little bit better. We have several smart consultants who have been immersed in the federal space for more than a year, and can assist with the particularities of federal consulting across various sectors and institutions. Additionally, we are learning about the nuances of working in the public sector through various pro bono/pro gratis projects and how those nuances impact recommendations. Projects with IT strategy and implementation, human capital, finance and budgeting, and/or international development really get us out of bed in the morning.

 

Organizational Management

Resources are scarce, especially in a business environment. So how can you be sure that you're utilizing and allocating them across your organization in the most efficient ways possible while staying true your business strategy and objectives? It can be a tough question for anyone to answer. Because of our experience working with clients through pro gratis projects, we feel that we can provide you with the research and solutions you need to align everyone in your business under a single goal while examining your company's strengths and weaknesses - and then determine ways to turn those Achilles’ heels into powerful and robust advantages.

 

Start-Ups & Non-Profits

The startup and non-profit business marketplace is a fierce frontier that requires the implementation of appropriately designed strategies. Many of us have worked with start-ups and non-profits either through pro bono projects, summer internships, or in our prior pre-MBA lives. Because of this, we feel that we can offer unique perspectives to help you save money and make more of it in the long run. We love building and creating business, operational, and financial strategies that have clear execution and built-in problem-solving contingencies. MIPC has taught us to use a holistic approach to help tackle and keep pace with the unique challenges that start-ups and non-profits deal with, which is essential to any company looking to grow.
