Just over 14 years ago David Poirier started The Poirier Group after he worked for years in senior executive roles in retail companies, where he gained significant experience and exposure into the business challenges many companies face. He believed he could make a meaningful impact on organizations across many industries by creating value and implementing and integrating sustainable change successfully. Having worked with large consulting firms in the past who provided cookie-cutter solutions, David believed there could be a better approach to consulting, and thus, The Poirier Group was born.
The Poirier Group employs outstanding leadership, subject matter experts, technical and creative resources who together provide the specific industry perspective and skill sets required to solve your unique business needs. We bring a wealth of real-world experience in executive and operational roles, diagnosing and resolving any business problem that we encounter.
We differentiate on being operational experts, meaning we don’t just figure out what to do, but we help guide you through how to do it. Our core resources and operational leaders are hybrid specialists, applying advanced skills, while focusing on people, measurement and technology to ensure sustainability. Drawing from some of the best minds in business today, we apply cross functional principles to reduce cost, drive culture and re-align your organization to function at your best.
We act more as a (specialized) extension of your team than an external consulting firm, working with you to create tailored solutions with your unique business challenges in mind. Over the duration of each project, we work regularly with key stakeholders to ensure solutions are aligned with the future state and the project remains on track for success. This allows for adjustments to be made along the way.
We strive to form a mutually beneficial partnership between our team and our client, with open, honest and direct communication as cornerstones of our approach. This builds trust and allows us to achieve significantly better results, faster. When your company is aligned with the solutions and has a say in what is going on throughout the process, it drastically increases the likelihood of sustainability.
Rolling up our sleeves to deliver a hands-on approach has proven successful in driving a greater pace of change than other firms, with sustainable, better value. At the end of each project, we don’t just hand you a report and leave. The Poirier Group team carefully and methodically works to implement your recommendations and transform solutions into a reality!
As a result of this approach, for over 14 years every client has been a positive reference, with notable companies in Canada, US and internationally.
The Poirier Group develops and executes strategy, discovers opportunities for performance improvement and focuses on people by partnering with key stakeholders to lead great companies. We have found that regardless of industry, the following 6 scenarios cover the main areas that businesses typically need help with and are the areas where The Poirier Group excels.
Our services are what we do, but these 6 areas are typically how we initially engage with clients and how we execute projects. These areas are foundational to our business and are what inspired the 6 boxes in our logo.
For each engagement, we build a team who has the practical experience, education, and technical skills to best tackle your project.
It appears as if we can do everything for everybody – how can we do this? We draw from senior expertise from contracted professionals and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) for support in areas that we do not internally have that expertise. They can be a great addition to a project team.
In other words, we don’t hesitate to expand our project team to ensure your needs are met. That’s how we can cover as many industries as we do.
We do not claim “done” until the results we promised are achieved and sustainable, and we will work tirelessly to do whatever it takes to make sure our clients are completely satisfied. Our past clients return with new opportunities because they trust us to deliver true value, reliable outcomes and an exceptional working experience. Our re-engagement rate speaks volumes and reinforces that we are delivering on our reputation. We’ve come to expect at the end of each project, that our clients will say:
Meet the team of management consultants that will be dedicated to your success
We work and live by 4 main values that define our character and drive our culture
