Our Approach to Management Consulting

It Begins With Trust, and Ends With Results

Unlocking your Potential Through Custom, Sustainable Solutions

Strategic Management Consultants
Years of Client Success

In 2005 David Poirier, CEO, founded The Poirier Group (TPG) to make a meaningful difference as a “values-based” boutique management consulting firm. 

Years of leading national and international organizations gave David exposure to the business challenges many companies face. He believed he could make a meaningful impact on organizations across industries by implementing and integrating sustainable change successfully.

David knew there was a better approach to management consulting than cookie-cutter solutions. Thus, The Poirier Group was born. 

Since then, TPG has grown to become one of the most trusted business management consulting firms in Toronto.

How We Engage With Clients

Common Business Scenarios

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. After all, the right strategy development and execution means everything for keeping your business ahead of the competition.

Our strategic management consulting 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.

Opportunity Discovery

When you recognize something is wrong, but do not know where to start or do not have the time or resources to fix it.
We work to understand how your organization operates and rapidly identify opportunities where performance improvement will increase your value

Initiative Specific Improvement

When you have identified a need for focused improvement in a particular area of business
We implement new and accelerate existing initiatives, working directly with you to drive better, faster results

Strategy Implementation

When broken processes, stalled strategies, and lagging revenues require an immediate fix, we bring your strategies to life
We offer a rigorous approach to both resolving short-term issues and enhancing long-term strategic direction. If you know what you want to do, we are excellent at figuring out how to do it

Transitional Management

When you are in need of interim leadership during periods of transition or restructuring
We advise senior executives working in leadership roles while assisting in the recruitment of permanent stakeholders during periods of transition and critical company activities.

Organizational Development

When core competencies at all levels of leadership need to be built or improved
We train key stakeholders and leaders to build competencies for organizations to sustain and improve their operations on their own.

Goal Driven Transformation

When your company is in need of broad changes to meet strategic, financial and operational goals
We develop enterprise-wide strategies and operating models, as well as re-engineer business processes that drive an organization’s growth. We have 30+ years of experience in transforming small to large organizations across many functional areas

Our Expertise

A talented team to solve your business challenges

For each engagement, we build a team which has the practical experience, education, and technical skills to best tackle your project and find the solutions you are looking for. This process allows us to tailor our management consultant services and create a custom strategy just for you – ensuring we achieve the best possible results for all our clients. Choosing right strategic management consultant firms can make all the difference. 

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, and their support allows TPG’s corporate strategy consulting to really reach its full potential as one of the top boutique consulting firms in Toronto. 

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. While other firms focus on one or two verticals, we’ve become one of the top boutique management consulting firms in Toronto by being willing to take on, and succeed in, multiple industries. 

How We Determine Success

When we can claim “Done”

We do not claim a project is “done” until the results we promised are achieved and sustainable. We will work tirelessly to do whatever it takes to make sure our clients are completely satisfied.

Meeting our clients’ goals is always the objective, and our work processes and client communications strategies reflect this; from the top to the bottom of our organization. 

With our malleable and individually tailored business consulting services strategies, our clients quickly learn that choosing TPG was the right choice.

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 as one of the industry-leading boutique Toronto management consulting firms. We’ve come to expect at the end of each project, that our clients will say:

  1. We are happy to refer you!
  2. You have exceeded our expectations
  3. You are not like other management consulting firms and corporate strategy firms we have worked with

“When organizations put their trust in us, its an enormous responsibility. Our values drive every business engagement we have, guaranteeing you success and creating authentic, meaningful relationships along the way”
