Who We Are
L.E.K. Consulting is a global management consulting firm that uses deep industry expertise and rigorous analysis to help business leaders achieve practical results with real impact. We are uncompromising in our approach to helping clients consistently make better decisions, deliver improved business performance and create greater shareholder returns.
Since 1983, consulting professionals have come to L.E.K. from all corners of the globe. Each brings a unique area of specialization, expertise and focus. Yet for all the diversity in our firm, every single one of our more than 1,600 professionals has something basic and fundamental in common: a goal of helping our clients maximize the potential of their business.
Today, we are proud to work with some of the most sophisticated, most innovative and most successful organizations in the world. It’s why we seek out the intellectually curious, confident and high-achiever types. It’s why we hire people who value analysis over assumption. It’s why our culture values evidence over opinion.
Whatever the scale, from our largest to our most focused engagement, we take nothing for granted. We consider each problem objectively based on rigorous and thorough research. And we follow the data relentlessly. We deliver not just the conventional wisdom but also deeper and sharper insights that are actionable and give our clients an information advantage. The culture we’ve built accepts nothing less.
What We Do
We help our clients achieve tangible, high-impact results.
At some point, virtually every company will face a situation where they have no clear solutions to their challenging strategic problems. We’ve spent decades helping clients look at these challenges in new ways to produce breakthrough insights and deliver new solutions.
Our ability to effectively address our clients’ most important business issues has paid off: More than 90% of our engagements come from repeat clients or referrals. Although every client and engagement is different, our focus is always on generating impact for our clients. The foundation of our approach is built on:
Deep, in-market expertise
Never before has our clients’ collective need been greater for a business partner that is at once versed in their industries and proficient in strategic insights. That means knowing the technologies, the business models and the ecosystems of every client’s market — a fundamental requirement of doing business in our global economy. And that is why our partners bring with them years — and very often, decades — of experience in the key sectors where our clients operate.
Building strategic partnerships
We take a hands-on, collaborative approach to all our engagements and focus on developing solutions alongside our clients. It all leads to strategic client partnerships that are focused on long-term success.
A philosophy of evidence, not opinion
We believe overcoming challenges demands nothing less than the most accurate portrayal of the truth.
It starts with every L.E.K. client’s being able to expect a candid and insightful assessment. Our proven methodologies apply a series of analytical lenses across a diverse range of clients’ challenges. Once we arrive at the heart of the problem, we’re able to discuss these solutions in clear, accurate terms with our clients. And we’re not afraid to challenge expected outcomes.
Our recommendations are based on rigorous analysis, in-depth research and an understanding of the market dynamics. We don’t allow anything to compromise this disciplined, objective approach. We value facts, not assumptions.
The know-how to turn insights to action
We create a bridge that addresses the capabilities, resourcing, coordination, and cultural and accountability barriers that often prevent the realization of a good strategy’s full potential. We help translate strategies into action that leads to desired results. Because a brilliant insight is only as good as its implementation.
