  • quotation marksMcGrigor Group are intelligent and creative strategic thinkers. They can find flexible and innovative solutions to growth and differentiation challenges. When we tasked them with several big questions they supplied recommendations based on factual detail unsourceable by the larger generalist consultancies. Then in management discussions they were able to hone these answers into executable and realistic strategies. They are trustworthy in terms of deliverables, data security, timetables and pricing. Quotation Marks

    Brian Barwick, IM Global

Many clients despite being experts in their industries, struggle to determine the right future course, the strategy, because of a range of constraints. An independent view and a set of methods to overcome these constraints can help to unlock their potential vision.

McGrigor Consulting's primary skill is fulfilling this role of the vision-creator or strategist.

We employ a variety of creative methods, learned from years of experience doing this, such that we can be used on one-off or a programme of sessions. We are particularly useful when we can apply our specialist sector knowledge in healthcare and insurance. We try very hard to bring fresh ideas as well as challenges, through homework and ensuring groups of different personalities gel to best effect.

Typically we force ourselves to go further towards finding solutions than most strategists. A client once described our approach as follows: “Most will say the answer is ‘New York’, but McGrigor Group will say its ‘5th Avenue and 34th Street’ in New York”.

While much of our consulting is set or per diem day rate based, in all our divisions we are usually more happy to share in the success we create.
