How often have you heard the Sir Francis Bacon quote, “Knowledge is Power"? From motivating us to read more as children, to becoming the "France is Bacon" meme, we have all seen this quote in one form or another.
As a management consultant in the professional advice business, having the knowledge is the reason for which we are hired. We take what we know, incorporate new information that we discover from our client, and generate new insight to help organizations identify new opportunities.
But what do we do when the information we discover only tells part of the story, or worse, the wrong story, and how do we ensure that we are not frivolous in our approach to gathering that information?
In a typical consulting engagement, firms put people on the ground, interview stakeholders, and request one-on-one time with leadership while approaching this process from a “more is more” point of view. It is to their benefit to require more time and money from the client but it’s not clear they are delivering increased value
At Aspirant we like to do things differently. We asked ourselves, 'How can we improve the traditional consulting model?' We sought to make it better, not only for ourselves, but more importantly, our clients. This is when we realized the need to innovate the discovery process, and Digital Discovery was born.
Accurately Pinpoint High-Value Insights with Digital Discovery
Digital Discovery is a proprietary AI tool capable of augmenting our consultant’s abilities to discover and process an entire organization’s worth of information. Do you have 10,000 sales associates? What about people spread across the continent? By leveraging advances in both natural language processing and machine learning, Aspirant consultants can perform virtual interviews with all stakeholders involved without the huge investment a consulting firm typically would require. This results in a better understanding overall and guides us to uncover deeper insights that would otherwise go unnoticed by the typical churn of one-on-one stakeholder interviews.
The process and benefits for Digital Discovery are as follows:
