Business Talent Group brings the best independent Talent to suit a Client’s needs at a fraction of the cost of traditional firms. It may be an individual to do a competitive analysis or cost reduction plan, or it could be a custom-built team of experienced consultants to prepare a new market strategy or a pricing study. Our teams often include industry talent with deep expertise and a proclivity towards execution. Projects generally fall into two categories, the “Consulting Classic” and the “Consulting Hybrid.TM”
The Consulting Classic
We bring individuals or custom-built teams of skilled management consultants trained at the best firms, such as McKinsey, Bain, or Accenture, that provide our Clients:
The experience and configuration of Talent to deliver the results that our Clients need.
Deployable at any pace and intensity over time, particularly appropriate for projects that are too small or too fast for major consulting firms. Clients have complete control; there is no time wasted on anything other than the analyses they most need.
Cost Effective Solution:
No need to pay for the overhead or oversized teams of traditional consulting approaches, so costs will be significantly less.

The Consulting HybridTM
Business Talent Group has pioneered the “Consulting HybridTM”, a custom-built team or individual that combines the best of both worlds: industry experience and management consulting know-how in strategy development, project management, and problem solving. The Consulting HybridTM is ideal for providing top-tier consulting services coupled with real-world know-how and a heavy focus on implementation. As one client says, “BTG’s blend of consultants and experienced industry talent is better than what the top consulting firms can deliver—for a fraction of the price.”
Laser Focus on Implementation:
Most of our Consulting Talent bring industry experience, so they know what it takes to really execute and drive a critical project to successful completion.
Infuse deep, pragmatic industry knowledge into a project to shortcut the learning curve, build credibility with the Client’s team or customers, and improve a project’s chances of success.
Clients say our Hybrid Consulting teams deliver distinctive value at a fraction of the price of traditional firms.
