Improving Client Performance,
Outcomes, and Impacts

Supporting Your Success and Social-Impact

Founded in 2006, Central IQ is a third-generation research, education, and consulting firm that helps social-benefit pioneers (1) improve their margins and missions, (2) become highly profitable market leaders, and (3) contribute to the greater good.

  • Our clients are purpose-driven innovators, entrepreneurs, and executives—unashamedly ethical trailblazers like you—with breakthroughs, best practices, and benchmarks that improve the well-being, productive capacity, and socioeconomic status of individuals, organizations, and communities.

Our specialized market, corporate, and product development services improve client revenues, operating efficiencies, and earnings growth—especially in tech-enabled segments of the healthcare, education, and social-service industries.

We protect and enhance client performance, outcomes, and impacts by providing analytical, strategic, and hands-on support services that reflect the timeless and digitally remastered principles and practices of Peter F. Drucker, W. Edwards Deming, and Will Durant.

  • We help social-benefit pioneers succeed by thinking and acting like applied social ecologists—with the mindsets, skillsets, and toolsets to create value for the right buyers toward a better-functioning society.

We view leadership as a moral endeavor; management as a liberal art; and knowledge workers as an infinitely expandable resource worthy of respect, responsibility, and reward.

  • Reflecting this inspired and pragmatic view, we help client teams develop professionally, morally, and intellectually.
  • As their beliefs and behaviors evolve; team members grow in self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-efficacy. They become more enlightened, empowered, and effective. They grow into their best selves, begin to think and act like equity holders, and learn how to deliver disproportionate value.
  • Client teams internalize the adage, “No margin, no mission.” They become more thoughtful, discerning, and committed. They create nestled missions, methods, and measures without prompting. They align the interests of individuals, organizations, and communities. They use scarce resources more and more wisely—and their results improve dramatically.

At Central IQ, we have developed a loyal following by quietly designing, developing, and disseminating the uncommon thinking, techniques, and tools of Deep Strategy on behalf of society’s net contributors.

  • Our meme-centered approach is unrivaled in strengthening good actors, dismantling Wicked Problems, and enabling positive social impact under the radar of misguided Special Interests and bad actors.

We apply subtle and radically effective Deep Strategy methods to ensure the world’s most beneficial products, services, and solutions—life-altering innovations like yours—take their rightful place at the forefront of the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.

  • Our research, education, and consulting services improve client culture, competencies, brand equity, revenues, operating efficiencies, earnings growth, risk mitigation, competitiveness, scalability, salability, speed to favorable liquidity events, and investor metrics.

We help clients like you become highly profitable market leaders by (1) doing the greatest good for the greatest number, (2) alleviating disproportionate suffering, and (3) empowering other net contributors while making society’s net detractors increasingly irrelevant.

We serve growth-minded and purpose-driven decision-makers who are concerned with both margin and mission.

We specialize in (1) enterprise-grade startups focused on initial revenue or scalability; (2) lead business units in multinational corporations (MNCs) ranked #3 in their markets and on their way up or down; and (3) drivers of economic vitality and social good.

Creating Footholds in “Convergence Markets” so You Can Lead the Field

Our specialty is helping our pioneering clients to capitalize on the lucrative and fast-growing revenue, earnings, and competitive opportunities where markets collide. 

These convergence markets are highly disruptive. They dramatically shift what end-users want. And they create a solid foothold from which our clients can preempt competitors and gain ground as market leaders.

With a deeper understanding of these points of convergence and how to benefit from them, our clients are able to leverage market trends and resources that competitors overlook or undervalue—ultimately changing the rules of the game.

Engaging Your Team Around Insights, Implications, and Imperatives

Our support is always results-driving, and it ranges from hands-on to analytical. 

For example, some decision-makers prefer on-site, hands-on working sessions, where we quickly:

  • Compile “tribal knowledge” from key opinion leaders and subject matter experts, 
  • Derive critical insight to support better decision-making, and
  • Get work teams rallied around the MUST DOs

Other decision-makers want more analytical help, such as executive-ready reports generated off-site, that help them:

  • Target and troubleshoot, 
  • Plan and forecast, or
  • Scale up and outperform.
