THE BEIS BELIEF
Current approaches to decision-making seldom make optimal use of external knowledge sources and expertise. Due to traditional barriers to access and
engagement, decision makers pass up absolutely stellar opportunities for innovative intelligence and expert insights that
could consistently result in timely, informed and profitable investments.
THE ROLE OF EXTERNAL EXPERTISE AND INSIGHTS IN
STRATEGY CONSULTING, CORPORATE M&A, AND PRIVATE EQUITY PROCESSES
Variety is the spice of life ... and the key to sound decisions!
The challenge that many strategic decision makers face is “breathing too much of their own exhaust”. This is because much of the data, information, knowledge and insights needed to make critical decisions are typically developed by tapping into the most readily available sources. For example, in strategy consulting, most consultants have historically relied on their client’s data, the strategy firm’s own internal information, and the consultant’s own knowledge base. This is like making big, humongous, multi-billion dollar decisions by relying on an hour-glass – okay, perhaps a watch - when you have the data from the equivalents of GPS, Geo Trackers, RFID Tags, IoT Technology, GIS, and many other Positional and Directional technologies available to you just for the asking! Why in the world would you not leverage that?
