CKM Advisors is a recognized leader in leveraging advanced data analytics (a.k.a. 'Big Data') for performance improvement. Our approach utilizes direct digital empirical measurements to assess employee productivity, resource utilization, process efficiency and the root causes of bottlenecks. Our assessments are quickly translated into targeted and highly successful improvement initiatives.
Our teams are a hybrid of traditionally trained strategy consultants and cutting edge data scientists - most holding PhDs. Relative to traditional management consultancies, we deploy small and highly agile teams.
We set ourselves apart from other major players in the 'Big Data' space by being strictly technology agnostic. Our primary objective is solving business problems, not selling a pre-packaged software solution or squeezing a client problem into a black box. Achieving meaningful performance improvement with 'Big Data' requires extensive experience dealing with all the nitty-gritty details in identifying, gathering, wrangling, normalizing and managing unwieldy datasets—this is where we thrive. Pre-packed solutions can provide tools to assist in that effort, but such tools on their own rarely provide meaningful value to senior management.
Our innovative ideas are backed by a solid track record of results with the leading players in the sectors and markets we serve. While there is currently a lot of excitement around experimenting with the use of large datasets, we understand that the bottom line is ultimately what matters to senior management.
From our bases in New York and San Francisco, we serve clients throughout the United States and around the world.
