The “Avascent Advantage” derives from a core set of capabilities and values that set the context for all our client relationships. They reflect both what we bring to the table and who we are as a firm. Across all of our activities, we seek to build on these core values to deliver distinctly different and valuable services to our clients.
Sector Expertise & Experience
We pride ourselves on our extensive experience in assessing the unique business context of government-driven sectors, particularly in the defence and security environment. Through countless engagements, we have developed a keen understanding of the government-industry relationships around the globe, to a degree no generalist management consulting firm can match. We are recognized for our ability to discern and frame complex environments in ways that drive both understanding and decision-making for our clients.
Deep, Rich Client-Focused Work
At Avascent, we place tremendous emphasis on developing intellectually rigorous, fact-based analyses and recommendations that are tightly aligned with our clients’ individual needs and objectives. While our work benefits from our previous experience, we nevertheless place central importance on systematically collecting and analyzing the hard data needed to understand each client’s situation. We draw on a range of internal, proprietary databases as well as outside sources. More importantly, we conduct extensive, tailored primary source interviews with customers, suppliers, subject matter experts, and other industry participants to capture and assess trends most likely to shape our clients’ prospects for success. It is our conviction that an effective strategy cannot rely on off-the-shelf knowledge, but must be informed through an analytically intensive, “outside-in” process that applies broad knowledge to specific client questions.
Flexible, Collaborative Group of Professionals
Our approach to our client relationships is reflective of our own culture. Internally, we operate in a highly collaborative, team-oriented, and non-hierarchical manner that seeks to draw out the best ideas as we contend with our clients’ challenges. We recruit from industry as well as from top-tier schools, including Stanford, Harvard, Duke and Georgetown, to create a unique mix of experience and intellectual intensity. We then create an environment where this talent can flourish. This flexible, collegial and collaborative model is also reflected in how we interact with our clients. We are proud of our reputation for responsive client service and our long-term relationships with our clients, many of which date back a decade or more.
Trustworthy Member of the Community
We pride ourselves on the reputation we have developed over almost 30 years as an ethical, responsible, and highly respected firm. Named one of Consulting Magazine’s “Seven Small Jewels” in 2011, Avascent has long enjoyed a reputation as a firm fully engaged in the industries it serves as well as the communities within which it operates. Through our work, the white papers and presentations we deliver, involvement with leading research organizations, and the community service activities of our staff, we have built a strong reputation across our client base and beyond.
