Schawbel Group has access to highly experienced consultants, and a network of recently retired CEO’s, COO’s, CFO’s, Engineering VP’s, and Marketing/Sales VP’s in a wide range of product and services categories, including personal care, health care, housewares, hardware, etc. Schawbel also collaborates with over 15 Asian and European based factories with on-the-ground English-speaking engineers. The company has the ability to “plug and play” resources as an engagement evolves to reduce time to market.
Schawbel’s process can simultaneously deploy resources in various consumer related disciplines. Using its globally based pool of consultants, the company has been able to complete product market research, engineering reviews of products, and tactical sales and marketing interactively. This ability to reduce the timelines on the introduction and implementation of consumer products and services allows the client to achieve results at the accelerated pace required in today’s marketplace and at a much lower investment. Schawbel uses proven real-world concepts, allowing adaptation to each client’s situation. The firm builds from the bottom up, for each client based on their needs, timing, and available funding. As a result, clients benefit from the vast experience the company has accumulated in the complex consumer world in a customizable fashion.
Schawbel also utilizes a modular approach to their work structure, which allows a client to see actionable results in a limited period. Each module or phase is a standalone, allowing for client’s input and feedback before proceeding to the next phase.
Personalized project management techniques allow for various touch points during a phase of a project so that adjustments made are “real time” based on the work product results.
Schawbel’s client base ranges from start-up organizations to multi-national companies with global businesses. In many instances, these multi-national operations look to Schawbel to execute new growth plans while keeping existing management focused on core business activities. Schawbel also works with nonprofit organizations to create sustainable revenue sources by offering pro bono and fee based consulting services.
