Let 1Kelley Consulting help you thrive
1Kelley serves a small number of clients in order to provide a high level of quality and responsiveness. As a client, you will receive tailored, implementable solutions for your business.
1Kelley project teams are coached and mentored by an MBA student leader and receive regular feedback from faculty experts.
1Kelley teams can help businesses address:
- Business planning
- Entrepreneurial support
- Adaptation to change
- Organizational assessments
- Financial documentation and sustainability
- Market research
- Marketing materials and social media
- Operations and supply chain
1Kelley prioritizes clients who are women, under-represented minorities, or enterprises that serve them because these business owners often lack access and the support need to fully take advantage of the many resources offered to business owners in Bloomington and the surrounding area.
Actionable recommendations for positive impact
Student consultants will work you to scope the project, conduct research and analysis, develop recommendations, and create deliverables. The project focus may evolve as the team undergoes training and determines how to best serve your business in the time available. By the end of the project, you will receive business recommendations and tools tailored to fit your business. We don’t want to leave you a report that gathers dust on your shelf, instead we will work with you to integrate the recommendations and train you to utilize any new tools that have been developed for your business.
The service is free, however, we expect clients to communicate consistently with the project team, be committed to the consulting process and open-minded about adjustments in project scope, and share relevant information with the project team. Specific client responsibilities include:
Filling out a short 1Kelley application and working with the student leadership team and faculty on initial project scoping
One or two introductory meetings with your 1Kelley project team.
Weekly meetings with your project team via phone or video conference, plus regular email and/or social media communication.
Final presentations, reviewing the team’s final deliverables, and client training.
