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.
We are not driven by process.
Our deep expertise will enhance your institutional knowledge to help you understand how well you are balanced across purpose, growth and survival.
We then help you craft a plan that meets those objectives and defines the mission critical path to performance excellence and strategy success.
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.

“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.”

What to Expect when you work with us.
We work with public and private organizations of all industries, sizes, and types, using a blend of your unique, internal expertise and our experience-based knowledge of guiding principles that apply across organizational boundaries to inform the consulting services you receive.
Think you need an industry expert to support your risk and strategy needs?
While our extensive experience takes us across more industries than most, we succeed in any environment because we focus on bringing new insight to the strategy-risk discussion in a way that adds significant value to your own process.
We get to know you so that we understand your concerns and challenges, what works and what doesn’t.
We dig deep to help you understand the root of the problem, not just the symptoms.
We work with you to find solutions that are achievable and sustainable based on what you already have in place – sometimes it's a baby-steps kind of conversation.
We do all of this on a scalable basis to fit your budget, your resources, and your timeline.
We leave you with a tactical, prioritized action plan to continue moving forward even after we are gone.
“Working with Erin Sedor of Black Fox Strategy for the past two years has been an amazing experience. During our strategic planning sessions in 2019 and 2020, Erin professionally guided our board and senior management staff through a series of visioning exercises to meet the ongoing challenges our organization faces, while at the same time helping us recognize our inherent strengths and tremendous progress. She is a skilled facilitator, who can synthesize varied sources of information and input in real-time. Erin produces strong visual and written products, which guides our organization in the form of our strategic plan. We value our partnership with Black Fox Strategy and look forward many more effective planning sessions.”
