Living the Entrepreneurial Dream: Celebrating 15 Years in Business
  One of America’s finest defining characteristics is our longstanding history and tradition of entrepreneurship: Going out on your own. Hanging out a shingle. Taking the risk to start something new. That is exactly what we did, 15 years ago. With a clean slate and no clients, a few colleagues and I met at Miller’s Pub in Chicago. On a bunch of napkins, we sketched out our ideal consulting firm. The words on those napkins included respect for diverse experience and thought, practical innovation, and quality over growth. Not insignificantly, one of them was fun. Our business is hard work. But if we’re doing it with people we enjoy and respect, why shouldn’t it be fun? Those humble words, our values, continue to guide us every day, from how we consider future investments, to how we welcome new employees, to how we treat our clients – like we wouldn’t exist without them. Because we wouldn’t. While our values have always put our people first, we would not enjoy the success and reputation we do today without the trust and confidence of our clients.
IT HAS BEEN A PRIVILEGE to live the ultimate dream of an entrepreneur and continue our country’s distinctive legacy.

I could not be more motivated to get working on that future — one where our uncommon blend of business-minded technologists and technology-minded business people will become our next generation of leaders. To our clients: It has been a privilege to live the ultimate dream of an entrepreneur and continue our country’s distinctive legacy. Thank you for 15 years of opportunities to collaborate, innovate, make a real difference, and, yes, also have fun along the way.  
Innovation: Build it, borrow it, or buy it. Just don’t forget it.

Disruptive innovation is top of mind for business leaders these days, and with good reason. Disruption is finding its way into every business sector. And in this environment of fast-evolving technology, it can happen quickly, leaving an organization’s primary revenue stream ripe for the taking. (Remember what Netflix did to Blockbuster?) Some organizations are aiming to be the change...

The War for Talent is Heating Up  

As West Monroe’s CEO, one of my imperatives is to focus on issues that are top of mind for our clients. In my interactions, I see that while we run different businesses, we have a common challenge and priority: the war for talent. Yes, the competition to attract and retain the best people possible is back again—and it is perhaps bigger and more urgent than ever before.…
