Our Approach

Beacon’s philosophy is that the best strategic and tactical business decisions are made from informed and well-reasoned positions. We employ a fact-based model that leverages both internal Beacon frameworks as well as generally accepted assessment models to generate a series of strategies and tactics for our clients to consider.

These analytical tools and strategic frameworks are populated by data collected through Beacon’s original primary research. This means our clients benefit from real-time thought and opinion from current market participants across customer, supplier, and competitor source communities.

Additionally, we created the firm on the belief that a passion for our work, our clients, and our clients’ industries drives world-class output. Our growth-focused staff and delivery model reflect this commitment.


We believe our value proposition is a unique combination of expertise, delivery model, focus, and effectiveness that drives the 80% of our business that is from repeat customers.

Beacon provides a timely recommended course of action based upon sound data and rigorous analysis. For each consulting engagement, we combine:

  • Structured analytical growth frameworks
  • Highly prescriptive recommendations
  • Unparalleled competency in market research and competitive intelligence
  • Price points our clients can afford
  • Complete ownership of work product by our client
  • A guarantee on our work to ensure client satisfaction and alignment of incentives

Prior to beginning an engagement, Beacon works collaboratively with our clients to ensure that the project scope we design aligns with their expectations. Each engagement is specifically tailored and customized for our clients. We do not re-use, re-publish, or otherwise re-package generic strategies.

Our team works systematically and efficiently to rapidly deliver high-quality recommendations that accommodate our clients’ time restraints. Beacon deliverables are prepared in weeks – not months. Because roughly 50% of our engagements are international, our project teams work around the clock to conduct research in different time zones to ensure promptness of delivery. The lights never go out at Beacon.
