Akeance Consulting , an advisory firm located in Europe (France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland) was founded on a common will shared by several former consultants : to offer consulting services in order to turn your strategy into operational actions. This strategic advisory offer is based on two ideas:
- be simple, meaning enable companies to generate the expected gains through the easiest way, or reach the assigned strategic targets;
- be fast, meaning emphasize action and implementation.
We also propose an advisory offer which is neutral and independent from any other services (IT, accounting, etc.). The latest evolutions have shown a nearly systematic integration of consulting activities within major groups. However, our consulting services specialized in operational strategy can find their right place, preserving their independence, alongside the large consulting players.
The projects carried out by our sixty consultants encompass upstream strategic studies (development plans, outsourcing decisions, business plans, process improvement, dashboard review, treasury forecasts, software selection), as well as downstream project management, aimed at the operational implementation (of a merger, a new organisation, a new management scheme, a new IT tool,…).
Who we are ?
Akeance Consulting was created in August 2004 by two former partners of KPMG Peat Marwich and has grown internally to become one of European’s leading independent advisory firm.
Our 75 consultants have all held either senior operational positions or have been former senior consultants in major international firms such as McKinsey, Ernst and Young, Cap Gemini Consulting, Deloitte, …
