At FPL Associates, our Management Consulting practice helps companies in the real estate and related operating and financial services industries address critical challenges, answer key questions, and pursue exciting opportunities.
We do this by utilizing a combination of skills and beliefs that is unique in the management consulting industry:
We offer superior industry knowledge. We understand the unique characteristics of the real estate and related industries, and as a result are able to provide insight pertinent to the particular challenges of companies in this space. This also makes us more cost- and time-efficient; our clients don’t have to pay us to learn their sector. This knowledge comes not only from our experience working in the industry, but also from our own custom research that explores key topics of interest to our clients and of importance to specific engagements.Typical Engagement Types
We take a highly individualized approach to every assignment. Experience has shown us that no two clients, challenges, or situations are alike. Rather than rely on a defined “toolkit,” we bring a fresh perspective and a unique methodology to each new challenge. At the same time, we have deep expertise in the consulting world, so we start each engagement with a broad set of experiences from which to draw.
We partner with client teams to reach the right answers. Working closely with our clients on each project not only makes us more efficient, allowing our services to be more cost effective, it enables us to gather all relevant facts and reach consensus faster within client organizations.
Our projects are highly customized and the specific scopes vary widely, but we generally find that engagements fall into one or more of the following categories:
Companies facing critical strategic questions turn to us for the best possible information, analysis, and counsel, so that they can make better decisions and enhance their immediate returns and long-term potential.
Strategic Planning. We lead clients through a process of setting both short- and long-term strategic goals and writing the roadmap to achieve those goals.
Globalization Strategy. We help leaders work through issues associated with globalization, including how it may fit into their strategy and the strategic and organizational implications of expanding internationally.
Specialized Research. We conduct unique, custom designed qualitative and quantitative research efforts designed to provide key answers to critical strategic and operational questions.
Whether growing organically or through acquisition, expanding operations overseas, or shrinking the organization to respond to changing market demands, our clients rely on us to help them analyze and rethink their structures to make sure they meet both current and anticipated needs with aplomb.
Organizational Assessments. We evaluate company and divisional organizations to see if structure and staffing are appropriate and to identify opportunities to enhance efficiency and effectiveness.
