How does The Corporate Executive Board differ from a traditional consulting firm?
The Corporate Executive Board is different from management consulting firms in terms of the relationships with our clients. Consulting firms focus primarily on solving specific problems for individual clients, approaching operational or strategic issues through the lens of that client’s self-interest. The work of The Corporate Executive Board focuses on understanding the most pressing challenges facing an entire corporate function, helping our members to think through broad trends in industry structure and direction. Our research focuses on cutting-edge strategy, operations, and general management issues; through this we identify the most innovative and effective management initiatives, processes, tools, and frameworks for our clients.
