  • »Breaking the Cycle of Volatility and Supply Chain Performance Deterioration

  • »Disruption, Financial Services and the Buffalo Bills
    The year was 1996: Alanis Morissette and the Smashing Pumpkins dominated radio—we still listened to radio back then—while your Internet 1.0 experience began when your dial-up modem screeched for 20 seconds and then connected you to your AOL account. You had mail! It was in that year that Episode 7 of the fourth season of the popular SciFi drama The X-Files aired, during which a conspiracy was laid bare in a secret meeting by powerful men.
  • »It’s a Floorwax... It’s a Dessert Topping... Actually, it’s Both!
    There are few sure things in the world. One might cite death and taxes, but only slightly down the list is the inevitable answer a Big Four consultant provides to the question “What is your firm’s strength?” Everything, of course.
  • »Show Me The Money
    Management consulting is a cash business. Now salaries and bonuses within the consulting industry are certainly not at the stratospheric levels enjoyed by their kindred brethren in investment banking. But consultants generally do realize much-better-than-average wages relative to their counterparts in the corporate world.
  • »Will ‘Knowledge Workers’ (Consultants) Be Replaced by Machines? It’s Possible
    The management consulting industry to date has been largely unscathed by the wave of technological change. However, there are signs that digital technologies are now beginning to disrupt the management consulting industry as well, with potentially deep and far-reaching consequences.
  • »A Force in Consumer Banking
    Banks have been stepping up their customer satisfaction game in recent years against the typical market forces at play. The pace of change has been head-spinning for an industry not well known for its swift response to customers.

    »Out of Office: ACME Consulting’s David Kelleher
    From studying Biology at Duke University to U.S. Army Infantry Officer Basic School, Airborne School, Ranger School, and ultimately standing in the door of a C-130 Hercules aircraft ready to jump and lead his 40-member infantry platoon into hostile territory, ACME Consulting co-founder David Kelleher is no stranger to a challenge. But when his military career was sidelined by a Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis in 1996, he was facing the fight of his life. In the early days of the disease, while suffering through symptoms including temporary blindness and limb paralysis, Kelleher kept his diagnosis mostly to himself. After coming to terms with his new reality, he decided to engage with the MS community. Since then, he’s enlisted ACME employees to get active, organizing bike rides and walks that have raised more than $500,000 for MS research since 2006.
