LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Blue Skies, LLC, a management consulting firm based in Southern California, announced today that it has adopted a new service model in order to serve clients who must compete in an increasingly digital economy.
“Today our clients require initiatives to go from concept to results in six months or less,” said Blue Skies Managing Partner, John Hoff. “Change is happening so fast that the conventional approach to selecting and training a consulting firm is no longer viable.”
Blue Skies’ client base reflects its role as a global leader in the Life Sciences as well as the Media and Entertainment industries. Companies must reconcile the increasing complexity of their operations - driven by market forces, new technologies, data dependencies, regulatory requirements and global supply-chain integration – with the accelerating pace of innovation. The twin pressures of higher speed and greater complexity have increased the failure rate for business innovation, and require conventional consulting roles and models to be rethought.
Blue Skies has responded by dedicating team members to specific clients. Blue Skies invests the time needed to learn the unique attributes of the client’s business and organization and becomes fluent in the issues that others might miss while providing solutions in context specific to each client. And, by cutting out lengthy training and ramp-up time, Blue Skies can deliver successful results in a shortened timeframe. A beneficial by-product of this approach is that Blue Skies gains knowledge and becomes more valuable to clients with each successive engagement.
“DTS Inc. looks to Blue Skies for deep industry insight and leadership in mapping customer opportunities to people, systems, and processes to ensure that DTS continually remains focused on driving customer success,” said Jess McKinley, VP Business Technologies at DTS. “In the fast paced world of digital entertainment delivery, speed to market is a major differentiator. Blue Skies delivers expertise and business solutions that allow us to stay ahead.”
“Blue Skies assisted us with planning and executing the implementation of the new clinical trials system, the associated business process changes to harmonize and streamline our processes on a global basis and supported the change management effort required to drive maximum adoption and value out of our investment,” said Randall Chiu, Director of R&D Information Services at Allergan. “Blue Skies was a great partner in this business critical initiative and acted as a natural extension of our team.”
Central to Blue Skies’ approach is ensuring that all initiatives and tactical work stay true to the strategic vision and goals of the company. “While each of our clients is unique, they all are participants in the digital economy,” Hoff added. “We have designed our consulting model to adapt to the realities of this new era and to provide digital enterprise consulting services that provide our clients with the industry expertise, business processes, and technology capability they need to advance, compete and succeed.”
