You don’t need a consultant who is going to tell you what you already know.
You need a consultant that will dig deep into your unique operation to identify gaps and emerging threats, find systemic weaknesses and key performance drivers to help you define, articulate and operationalize risk appetite and tolerance to execute your strategy and achieve vision.
Our clients range from start-ups to $1b global entities, for-profits, non-profits, and local government and tribal entities.
Our clients benefit from our balanced approach to purpose, growth, and survival, creating strategy design that is more robust because it is informed by mission-critical risk and resilience priorities.
We believe your organization will benefit from this too.
Our uniqueness is summed up in our ability to assess and identify the drivers of strategic performance risk wherever it exists within your organization.
You and your team know what your strategy needs to be – we will make it even better by assessing potential gaps in the design and execution of your plan.
Our promise to you...
We will NEVER try to fit your problem into a pre-determined solution, ask you to start over from scratch, create more complexity than you need, or sell you a service that doesn’t solve a problem.
We WILL bring greater visibility to what is slowing you down.
We WILL reveal how to improve goal execution success..
We WILL help you define and articulate risk appetite and tolerance.
We WILL show you how to strike a balance across purpose, growth, and survival.
We WILL teach you how to create actionable, sustainable process and programs.
“We worked with Black Fox Strategy in 2019 to gap assess an issue we had affecting client capture in one of our groups. From the start, we thought we knew what the problem was and that Erin would simply confirm our suspicions. We were enlightened when her analysis revealed that what we thought was an issue wasn’t one at all – we actually had a completely different problem. She then worked with our team to create an action plan to get the group back to an optimum level of performance. The results have been extremely successful – we couldn’t be happier! Erin’s ability to get at the root of a problem and then support a team in crafting the solution is exceptional.”

"Working with Black Fox Strategy was incredibly smooth. Erin is gifted at drawing out information from people in an easy and non-threatening manner. Black Fox Strategy is Socratic in its approach and provides clear direction. They were a delight to work with—the information they provided was thorough and mind-blowing. I myself was recommended to Black Fox Strategy by a friend who had a great experience working with them. I would highly recommend Black Fox Strategy. Their approach was professional, yet simultaneously easygoing and not forced."
