A boutique consultancy with expansive reach.
Working With Promethean
Personal and professional integrity
Without trust, research and advice are worthless.
We work hard, often going above and beyond, to ensure we deliver valuable research and advice.
Clear candid communication
When decisions affecting the very core of your business are on the line, ambiguous communication is unacceptable.
It all starts here. We perform the most comprehensive research on the digital services industry in the world.
Our Digital Marketing Agency Industry Report is a good example of our work.
Insight across all levels
Our advice comes from our research on how digital firms succeed, all the way to what’s happening on the global stage. This breadth of scope lets us uncover things others can’t.
Our advice encompasses insights from:
- Curated secondary macro research
- Broad-based industry and sector research
- Proprietary industry research on the digital services, enterprise software, and martech industries
- Individual client firm research
- Individual stakeholder interviews
Complete understanding of goals
We begin every project by ensuring we understand what the key stakeholders want the company to do. This is critical for us to be able to prescribe the correct research or strategic direction.
Resource identification and discovery
We evaluate all the current and near-adjacent resources the firm has available. It’s important to know what you have to work with but sometimes we’re able to see easily obtainable resources current management hasn’t.
Simplify and derisk
Part of our initial onboarding is assessing the level of risk stakeholders are comfortable taking on. We then remove risk where we can and attempt to quantify the level of risk inherent in the strategy. This process almost always involves simplifying the business.
Are We a Fit?
Who we work with
Type of shop
We work with:
- Digital solution firms
- Digital marketing firms
- Software development shops
- Design shops
- Martech SaaS firms
We work best when our clients have between 10 and 150 employees.
While we’ve worked with clients across four continents and our research has covered shops in over 100 countries, our current focus areas, where we can provide the best advice, are in the United States and Canada.
Point of contact
For any project we accept, we work directly with the firm’s leadership.
While the exact goals may vary, we work best with teams interested in growing at a sustainable pace. Significant growth rates aren’t uncommon but they are often unreliable. We prefer to build reliable growth engines.
