Dean & Company is a strategy consulting firm that helps management create significant bottom-line value improvements. Our consulting projects have realized over $20B in cumulative impact in added value and our investments have realized IRR in excess of 30%.
We view ourselves as value architects. A deep understanding of the sources and levers of enterprise value enables us to identify how value can be created and sustained and how competitive advantage can be managed. Broad experience of working with senior managers enables us to turn our insights into practical programs that operating managers can implement. Our bias towards quantification provides a sound basis for the development of performance metrics to track progress and measure value.
We serve two broad groups of consulting clients: large corporations (typically Fortune 500) and small, but high potential, businesses. For large, established businesses, we focus on business creation, ramp-up, and redirection situations that call for intense analytical focus in order to determine the shifting drivers of value. For early stage businesses, we identify and focus attention on the key strategic, marketing, and competitive business variables.
We are a focused organization actively seeking those situations where our unique approach and skills can provide significant economic leverage for our clients. We believe that the key measure of our success is our ability to deliver bottom-line value to clients.
