Firm/ Client The Challenge What Acumen Did Impact
A Big 4 Consulting Firm

  • The Forensics Division had been growing at a fast rate but the team now believed that the growth rates would slow down since the business was plateauing due to the fact that the prospects for new business was diminishing
  • However, the Managing Partner of the Division believed that there was an opportunity for growth and it could take place if there was a buy-in from the team
  • The Managing Partner's objective was to get the team to make a plan for a 2x topline for growth

  • Conducted a 3-day planning exercise with the entire team
  • Facilitated the generation of a detailed plan that would ensure a topline of 2x

Tools Used

  • In-Depth Interviews, Brainstorming, Strategic Facilitation
The team who, at the start of the exercise, were doubtful of any growth prospects at all, created a plan of 2.9x and are now well on their way to achieving those numbers
