When considering different management firms, client organizations may be tempted to jump to one of the familiar, renowned consulting brands. That might seem like the simplest and best choice initially, however, boutique options typically yield better results for much less expense.
While the big management companies may appear like a known quantity and draw from a large pool of resources, niche consulting firms such as MacKellar Golf Management offer unique benefits. In the modern era of operations management, a majority of owners are moving to smaller consulting firms for their requirements.... and here is why:
What do boutique management firms offer?

Are we right for you...maybe, maybe not - and thats ok?
Clients will ultimately decide whether to work with a large management firm or a niche provider such as MacKellar Golf Management. Here are a few questions that should be answered in advance:
a. Is the higher price for brand reputation of a large consulting firm always justified?
b. Am I willing to pay for services and overheads that I wont ever use?
c. What are the opportunities to increase the risk-adjusted value of the engagement?
d. What disadvantages are associated with choosing a smaller management firm?
e. Am I willing to work collaboratively with the MGM team to build success?
There's not one right answer to these questions.
We recognize there are projects for which a larger management firm is the best solution: If the brand, its international footprint and broad expertise are crucial to your venue.
However, in circumstances where clients seek to add value by partnering with experienced industry specialists and creative business professionals on a personal and engaging level.......then MacKellar Golf Management is the only solution!
