We work with top management to beat their competitors and generate substantial, lasting financial impact. At Aquifon we look at a business as an integrated, cohesive whole. Aquifon helps companies find where to make their money, make more of it faster, and sustain its growth longer. We help make the big decisions: on strategy, organization, operations, technology, and mergers & acquisitions.
Where appropriate, we work with clients to make it happen – which may mean fundamentally changing the company. Our work is most successful when we work closely with clients who are dissatisfied with the status quo. Our clients call us when they have something pressing on their minds—whether it is a major strategic or operational need or an organizational challenge. They look to us for honest, objective, thoughtful, and experienced advice.
Our clients talk to us when they find themselves under pressure to deliver results. They call us in uncertain times. They talk to us when information is difficult to get and insights are scarce. They call us when they need to make decisions that will have major consequences for their people, their organizations, and the countries in which they operate. They call us when they want a truly global perspective.
With our broad reach across industries, functions, and geographies, we speak our clients’ language. We live where they live. We will understand their business.
We help people and companies explore extraordinary opportunities, manage and sustain growth, and maximize revenue.
HOW WE DO IT
We do this using these core principles:
- Follow the top management approach
We find and solve the most critical and challenging problems. We take an overall, independent, and fact-based view of a client’s performance. We rely on facts because they provide clarity and align people. Facts are the global management language. We work with facts to provide credible recommendations. We work directly with leaders who can partner with us to develop and accept recommendations and have the ability to implement them.
- Use our global network to deliver the best of the firm to all clients
No one at Aquifon “owns” a client relationship. We rely on multiple people and not a single consultant, to provide leadership and our high standard of client service in each situation. We draw on our wide network of internal or external expertise to bring together the right minds for the right solutions.
- Bring innovations in management practice to clients
Our clients need new insight. We ask our people to bring their best thinking to our clients. We invest significant resources in building knowledge. We see it as our mission to bring this knowledge to our clients and where required we publish it for the benefit of business and government leaders worldwide and to force ourselves to think about what is next.
- Build client capabilities to sustain improvement
We work with our clients as we do with our colleagues. We build their capabilities and leadership skills at every level and every opportunity. We do this to help build internal support, get to real issues, and reach practical recommendations. We bring out the capabilities of clients to fully participate in the process and lead the work after we have left.
- Build enduring relationships based on trust
We earn our clients’ trust. We do this through our consistently superior service, our professional conduct, and our complete commitment. Each one of us is responsible for earning and keeping our clients’ trust with our individual behavior and the quality of our work. We care for our clients as people and organizations, even when we are not serving them.
