We are a strategy and performance consulting firm built on a bedrock principle – that unlike career consultants, leaders who have had to operationalize a strategy within a company are best positioned to create actionable solutions that drive business results. Our leadership team has this management experience and bring it to every consulting engagement we complete.
We serve clients in healthcare, industrial products, high-tech, financial services, and a range of industries. We aim to be the partner of choice by adding tremendous value to these clients across our solution offerings, including Organic Growth, M&A, Cost Economics, Process Improvement, Complex Program Management, Core Systems Configuration, Product Development, Digital Transformation, Actuarial Informed Decision Making and more.
Strategies are best developed by internal leaders who have a deep understanding of their industry and their own organization's strengths and culture. Through unique know-how and accelerators, FQA empowers senior leaders to unlock the intellectual capital that lay dormant in their organizations.
In-house operational experience
We have been in your shoes, leading large organizations and executing complex projects in VP/Director roles across multiple business areas.
Our people have all been on both sides of the table – as consultants, and as business leaders buying consulting service.
Partner-led engagement delivery
Our senior-most professionals are actively involved in engagement delivery, bringing a depth of knowledge and experience.
Our methodology is grounded in belief-driven strategies (vs. desire-driven strategies) that engages your internal staff intimately in the design of the strategy.
Big 3 results,
2/3 the cost
We are NOT a multi-purpose consulting firm and are free from implicit biases towards the “follow-on project”.
We also do not compete on unit price. Our methodologies, tools and accelerators eliminate low-value ‘page-filler’ work, resulting in 20-30% lower client fees.
We know you. We were you.
Our leadership team began their careers in the top management consulting firms and subsequently held leadership roles in multi-billion dollar enterprises.
With more than two decades of experience in Healthcare, Retail, Consumer Products, High-tech, Logistics and Government industries, we have led some of the most ambitious and critical initiatives for our clients and within our companies.
FQA prides itself on being a minority-owned business comprised of a group of diverse practitioners / 49% Women Practitioner / 38% Women in Senior Leadership Roles / 12% Military Veterans / FQA India - All FQA Practitioners collaborate in the same capacity.
We seek top talent in the market regardless of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, or gender identity), national origin, age, disability, and genetic information.
We strive to create an environment where all FQA team members receive equal opportunities for professional growth.
We encourage inclusion of ideas during the decision-making process, seeking input from colleagues across the firm.
Board of Advisors

The consulting business was built on the consultants’ ability to bring diverse knowledge to a client. However, knowledge is now freely available and easily accessible.
FQA is a new type of consulting firm, one that is built on deep expertise and hands-on delivery as clients ourselves. We are not only helping clients transform their industry, we are transforming our own.
