We are a collection of bright and creative students from the UBC Sauder School of Business. The team is obsessed, intrigued and passionate about solving problems. We offer management consulting services to Start-up to Medium-sized businesses in the lower mainland.
You present us with a challenge your team is facing and we work with you to drill down on the core issues at play, arriving at a tangible hypothesis.
Our principals are working professionals and part-time MBA students. They have extensive experience working for successful recognized firms across multiple sectors.
We focus on providing solutions that are rooted in deep data analysis or distilled down from multiple yet disjointed insights.
Businesses are asked to donate for our consulting services. The donations are put towards speaking events such that Sauder students can connect with the professional consulting community at large.
We stay within our sphere of confidence and provide definitive next steps and recommendations. In some cases we can't solve the problem that needs to be addressed and in those cases we provide recommendations on which specialized firm could support your business.
We focus on specific industry types and business sizes such that we are in a position to provide a meaningful impact to the companies chosen
Local firms that focus on mobile apps, platforms, enterprise solutions, or content creation.
Small to medium-sized businesses that have been established for a number of years that are contemplating reinvestment or growth.
Firms that design and manufacture hardware or technology products locally.

An engagement with Sauder Consulting is a hyper focused deep dive into your firm, its assets and its activities. It requires just as much if not more input from your side. We spend a considerable amount of time before the 2 hour session ensuring you have the data on hand to get the most from your 2 hour session. We meet you at your location for an intensive, collaborative and creative session that focuses on sparking insight in your team and allowing us to further distil down on our hypothesis. Two weeks later we are back to deliver our thoroughly researched findings inspired by cutting edge management thinking. Just like that you have gained insights straight from one of the consistently top ranked business programs in Canada
The actual meet up with a select group of 5 from our team takes place at this point. The facilitator leads the discussion between both parties. He is an outside observer that keeps discussion on point but allows for creative insight to flourish. So in that regard, this meeting's goal is to treat the discussion like a back and forth exchange of ideas, allowing us to tap into your industry experience, preferences, risk appetite all without coloring it with our inherent biases.
We will ask many probing questions and the data you have had to collect will be insightful and allow us to keep the momentum of the discussion going. The more half-answers, as we call it, we can provide then on a high level this can spark deeper discussions. For the most part this is where your team will generates numerous potential solutions to the original question and our group expands, builds upon, sorts then crops and refines those solutions.
The process is slightly different for each industry type or question type but the overall framework is what will allow us to provide maximum value in the 2 hour consult
At this stage we present the one recommendation or course of action. If there is a deliverable that was agreed upon in step 2 and further refined in step 3 then this deliverable will be provided with the recommendation. We close up with providing the next steps that can be accomplished within the firm. We also provide steps that should be handled outside of the firm by others.
As we do not do implementation or concentrated studies, we will provide a list of recommended firms that can support with those recommendations we lay out.
