Business frameworks and methodologies are structured tools to approach complex, but common business challenges. They allow us to cut through noise, zero in on the key issues, and facilitate the development of insightful recommendations.

The importance and usefulness of business frameworks in the consulting world—especially among the global strategy firms—cannot be overstated. For consulting firms, these frameworks are part of the bread and butter that enable them to consistently deliver value to client organizations across industries and geographies.

Frameworks are helpful for several reasons:

  • They provide structured and detailed process for addressing the business challenge at hand.
  • They help ensure that the analysis is comprehensive and that critical aspects of a problem are thoroughly examined.
  • They accelerate the problem-solving process, as they allow consultants to apply proven methods and best practices, rather than reinventing the wheel each time or wasting time and effort pursuing dead ends.

Consulting firms with extensive resources pioneer their own consulting frameworks through a combination of research, years of accumulated project experience, as well as subject matter expertise gathered from working across different sectors and functional areas. This development process is iterative and ongoing, with frameworks being continuously refined and updated to reflect new business realities and emerging best practices. Each global consulting firm maintains an internal knowledge management library of consulting framework presentations.

At FlevyPro, our team of former McKinsey and Big 4 consultants with several decades of combined experience have developed the largest publicly available knowledge base of consulting framework presentations, known as the FlevyPro Library.  Each FlevyPro consulting framework presentation follows the standard “headline-body-bumper” design structure that is utilized by all the global strategy consulting firms.
