Whether helping to design, build and implement a new data warehouse, using adaptive predictive modeling to project future trends, or mentoring executives on managing peak-performing teams, RAW Consulting engages with organizations to leverage their big data, reengineer their processes, and position their leaders for success.
Every business is an elaborate system, with people, processes, data, technology, and regulations all interacting in real time, in complex, interdependent relationships. No matter the discipline, all areas require access to quality information. Research At Work Consulting provides this expertise, helping leaders understand and use data to run organizations more effectively. RAW uses data to develop state-of-the-art solutions in five practice areas:
Data-management Advisory Services
From strategic planning, like evaluating processes or devising an engineering roadmap, to tactical solutions, like building and managing a data warehouse or bringing data governance policies into compliance, RAW works with companies to manage change, motivate teams, and transform the enterprise. Wherever the information resides, RAW can capture it, bring it into clearer view, and manage it.
Process Consulting, Training, and Implementation
As a company expands, its processes can become byzantine. That’s why RAW works with corporate leaders to reimagine operations from the ground up. This may mean reengineering systems, introducing Agile methods, or facilitating as individuals work together to accomplish shared goals. Applying specialized knowledge of human behavior, team dynamics, and economic-based incentives, RAW leads firms out of inertia and toward new growth.
General Management Consulting
RAW helps business leaders grasp and deploy information holistically – especially as it relates to sudden, disruptive changes like an acquisition, or a major new technology program. It uses predictive analytics to identify and diagnose trends, deploys data to help competing groups work together, and unlocks information to enhance the user experience. RAW also provides instructional design to support corporate learning and development.
Mentoring an enterprise toward growth often starts at the top. RAW provides executive coaching that promotes accountability using metrics, better decision-making via data-driven tools, and more effective incentives with behavioral economics. RAW consultants understand that fostering data-driven leaders means empowering them with the information they need to become more confident, more empathetic human beings.
Interim CxO Services
Bringing in an outsider sometimes helps leaders view intractable challenges in new ways. When organizations seek a catalyst or a temporary executive who’s divorced from company politics, they turn to RAW Consulting. Years of management experience in a variety of industries allows RAW consultants to step into a short-term leadership role deftly, look across an enterprise horizontally, and make informed, strategic decisions about the future.
Regardless of practice area, RAW helps organizations use their information to function efficiently, grow profitably, and operate independently.
