Implementers, thought leaders

The firm's website stresses an "emphasis on implement-ability" in everything that Avalon does for clients. This, along with "out-of-the-box thinking," an "inclusive and collaborative approach," deep industry and strategic expertise, and a track record going back more than 20 years-serves as the key differentiator for the firm's approach.

That approach has won the firm some major clients over the years-featured clients include the likes of Tata Group, Murugappa Group, AV Birla Group, BASF, Dow Chemical, Ingersoll Rand, Atlas Copco, Altran, Asahi India, Blackstone, Carlyle, TarunTahiliani, Claris Group, Thomas Cook, Deepak Fertilisers, NatSteel and more.

In addition to its consulting work, meanwhile, Avalon likes its employees to demonstrate their though-leading capabilities through publication of insights and whitepapers, which it puts out on a regular basis.
