My company hired Wave 3 on at least two separate occasions to evaluate certain strategic initiatives. In both cases, they were successful and made the progress we were looking for. Wave 3 explored and integrated complex sets of information, both internal and external to the company, before making a recommendation consistent with the company’s strategic goals, the company’s competencies, and the realities of the market. I recommend Wave 3 to organizations that need to apply strategic thinking to complex situations while accounting for the many human elements.
Ken Fisher – AVP Corporate Development, Pacific Life
Through a recommendation from a successful friend and mentor, I engaged Wave 3 to help me refine my vision for the business and ensure that we have the right processes and financial controls in place to support our growing operations. As a business owner, it was important for me to work with a firm that not only brings expertise but could also roll up their sleeves and execute alongside my team. Wave 3 conducted a comprehensive assessment of our business, developed a detailed list of recommendations, and partnered with me and my team to implement them. The team was also instrumental in helping us secure the capital needed to expand our operations. I highly recommend Wave 3 to other business owners looking for a trusted partner take their business to the next level.

I engaged Wave 3 to assess our current level of maturity across industry-specific capabilities and work with leadership to implement capabilities requiring prioritized focus. Wave 3 brought a broad external perspective and knowledge of best practices critical to the success of this transformational effort. Wave 3 invested the time to understand our company culture and develop a customized plan to accelerate our strategic transformation journey. I have worked with many consultants throughout my career so I found it refreshing to work with a firm so focused on delivering quality results tailored to the needs of my company, its culture and the reality of its early maturity in embracing a thoughtful and analytical approach to developing a strategic framework. Many consultants provide superficial, wonky, ‘one size fits all’ solutions that are not sustainable or applicable, but Wave 3 invested the time to understand the business environment and company culture, and help me to develop a customized plan to successfully surface areas for focus to maximize our limited resources in order to accelerate our strategic journey. I would recommend Wave 3 without reservation to those seeking quality and sustainable results.

Working with Olivier has been one of my most cherished experiences in the corporate world. An agile thinker who is always eager to embrace new challenges, Olivier can be counted upon to consistently provide wonderful strategic thought partnership and change management expertise. He has been a critical component in the leadership support and organizational championship of my nascent Strategy and Applied Analytics teams. Olivier not only brings his own expertise to any situation, but also has at the ready the breadth and depth of knowledge of his extensive and brilliant network. The combinatorial effect accelerates his impact as a consultant beyond any in my experience with larger firms.
