About Slalom Consulting

Founded in Seattle in 2001, Slalom Consulting is a management and strategy IT implementation firm that places a strong emphasis on work-life balance; much of the firm's site is dedicated to this aspect of its approach to doing business, and it is regularly cited on lists of "Best Places to Work" as a result.

Alpine Slalom

While Slalom's early work was dedicated exclusively to management consulting, over half of its business now comes from its tech operations, and its has been a Microsoft Certified Gold Partner since 2005.  Not only does this sought-after denotation add prestige to the Slalom name, but it also sees Microsoft regularly recommend Slalom consultants for implementation of its technology.

The firm has four main service areas: business management, technology enablement, organization effectiveness and information management, with business management and organization effectiveness encompassing much of the territory traditionally dominated by strategy consulting firms.  Slalom's technology enablement sector covers all the appropriate bases; the firm is fully capable of designing, configuring and maintaining a corporate technology infrastructure from scratch.  Likewise, Slalom's information management sector turns around client data in easy-to-access, easy-to-analyze formats.
