CEO Advisory Service

Your trusted advisor and
confident on strategic matters

Running a business is tough, no matter what the industry, the composition of your product line-up or the maturity of your firm… From a bottom-up perspective, being a CEO entails being ultimately responsible for all day-to-day management decisions and for implementing the company’s long- and short-term plans. From a top-down perspective, however, the CEO acts as a direct liaison between the Board and management of the company and communicates to the Board on behalf of management.

At DataToCapital, bringing value by becoming the thinking partner and advisor to CEOs on their strategic issues and challenges has become second nature to us. We can do this thanks to our experience working with/for small and large organizations in Israel and abroad at a C-level.

We are the secret weapon for CEOs against the constant uncertainty and ambiguity, and the inevitable degree of isolation and loneliness they face.

Why would a CEO
seek external advice ?

Here is what we believe are the answers, based on
actual input received from our CEO clients:

Get a new perspective

Knowing the business inside out has its “other side of the coin” effect. When being deep in the day-to-day operations or always surrounded by the same group of people, the CEO will most likely not see innovative opportunities. They will tend to repeat their suboptimal approach to solving specific problems encountered in the past. Bringing someone in that could have a fresh look at the known issues and offer a new perspective on how to tackle a given problem could definitively be a true boost, and even re-energize an initiative.

Work With Someone Not Involved In The Day-To-Day Politics Of The Organization

It could take some time to reach the right level of trust while working with a consultant, but for a CEO to be able to tell the Truth (with a capital “T”) with no frictions or unnecessary storytelling, no matter how ugly, is not only orgasmic (no less), but also key to truly mapping all existing alternatives present in the solution space. Being able to isolate and formulate a specific problem and all its implications to someone you trust and know will not judge you is half the problem solved. Furthermore, in some cases where the CEO needs to deal with sensitive topics, such as succession, major re-org, project reshuffling, or energizing the senior team, it would be almost impossible to involve their directs or even some of their directs for obvious reasons. We are, in this case, a natural choice. Many times, we are also asked to provide a second opinion on strategic matters as an external neutral party.

Work with a talented person you don't have to manage

Working with a clever and results oriented consultant on a specific area in the long run could be fun; you focus on one thing only: getting the value you need… you don’t have to care about career development, incentive schemes, formal performance reviews, or personal conflicts with peers… and the icing on the cake is you don’t have to go through the heavy bureaucratic processes to get him/her on board or to terminate the collaboration.

A pretext to stop the day-to-day, and think strategically

Sometimes the external advisor is only a necessary pretext to get out of the office, clear your mind, and focus all your brainpower on a given task so you can reach a decision. In this case, we are leveraged to perform the initial data collection and for facilitating the decision-making process. For instance, a general manager we have been working for has insisted on having our weekly sessions in our Tel Aviv offices, despite the fact he had to drive 40 minutes.

Leverage external capabilities for a predetermined period

In some cases, the CEO and his/her management team don’t have the expertise to address a specific issue. No worries… no-one knows it all… This is also a common practice to reduce execution risk for first timers or unusual corporate events.

Handle unpleasant
processes faster

Remember the last time you had to deal with a staff reduction event? Most of the time the external advisor is not emotionally involved in the process and can help you look yourself in the mirror and make the agonizing decisions promptly. As well in terms of execution, in the case of a re-org or a staff reduction process, acting fast is a decisive factor in making the process less painful for the firm.

Being told you are on the wrong path

Due to groupthink and their personal agenda, your direct subordinates will tend not to fight too much. You can trust us. We will not believe “clients are always right”, we will tell you when/if we think you are wrong despite the fact you are paying us. Many times we have told our executive clients what we believed was in their best personal interest despite their originally expressed views. In such cases, our approach is always to show you the data that backs up our point, so you can review, take the best possible decision, and optimally save a tremendous amount of money, time and energy.

Working with us
is so easy

• Committed to deliver exceptional value:

We are a small team of senior consultants that comes from industry with a super practical mindset, and not from a pure management consulting background. (If you need a theoretical doctorate to be written on why you should not follow a given decision, we are not the address). We have served as CEOs, General Managers or Directors in other Tier-1 companies and Start-ups. We know your challenges and how to fast track resolutions.

• We know a thing or two about Digital Transformation:

We are one of the only Management Consulting & Strategy companies in Israel that truly understands the transformative fusion of Business and Technology, and how it can benefit our clients. Most of us have been working for technology giants at key positions and have been involved in the integration of technological solutions in major businesses.

• We don’t play games with you:

Unlike pure management consulting firms, with us the analytical and assessment work is not performed by junior analysts (the "associates" as they like to call them) and then presented by senior partners. We are super lean. You will be assigned one senior consultant that will support you end-to-end and work with you in full transparency; no complex communication, no complex contracts, no differential pricing, no crap!

• Zero Risk & Full Control:

First of all, you take zero risks... you pay as you go, buying a certain amount of consulting hours as a package every time needed.

• Guaranteed Discretion:

We guarantee discretion and complete confidentiality. You have our word (and a signed NDA ;-).

• We value your time:

Depending on the nature of the problematic we work on, we do all the homework offline and we have weekly face-to-face or video sessions with you only when needed. We value the time of our CEO clients, we ALWAYS come super prepared to meetings.

The overall process is simple:
