he foundation and the sustained growth of Estin & Co stem from three core beliefs:
Strategy consulting is a high growth segment of the consulting industry.
The corporations best fit for long term profitable growth are those which get on top of the business cycle and understand their industry's long-term dynamics better than their competitors. Two companies in the same industry have to use different levers of action and different business models or one will win and one will lose. As resources are scarce, their allocation between those levers is critical. Strategic choices are always the key factor in companies' growth, profits and value.
It requires a total specialization with specific talents, approach and expertise.
Estin & Co specializes in strategy consulting and does not offer any other services in order to avoid dilution of competence. The firm's strategy is to grow internationally by keeping its focus on this activity at the potential expense of its size.
In order to bring value to clients it has to rely upon two intertwined capabilities:
The ability to use strong and creative analytical approaches, in order to help clients to differentiate from the average industry dynamics and to do better than their competitors; and the ability to integrate priorities and solutions for action from a senior management perspective, in order to transform insights and advice into action and results.
Our firm's distinctiveness lies in its analytical and factual approach and in the fact that our senior partners focus all their time on direct assistance to clients and not in the internal management of a large and complex consulting organization.
We see everyday that this focus allows us to successfully help our clients improve their results and value. This in turn is the source of our firm's strong growth. Even in recent years, when most other consulting firms were scaling back, Estin & Co's business grew by 20% per year.
This growth requires and allows us to attract and develop numerous talents in a strong and stimulating environment. We believe that our small size, our specialization and our growth are highly attractive for candidates who have the ambition, capabilities and energy to make an impact on business and people.
