Magic Hat Consulting was formed with the purpose to help companies improve their ability to realize intended business results. The firm was founded by Jim Lyons (CEO), when after years of studying companies resulted in the identification of a troubling trend – too many companies consistently failed to realize intended results from the programs and projects they embarked upon.
Committed to correcting this trend, Magic Hat Consulting was launched in January, 2007 with the belief that by helping companies improve in three (3) key disciplines; Business Process Improvement (BPI), Requirements Management (RM) and Program & Project Management (P&PM), Magic Hat would improve company's ability to consistently realize intended results improving companies’ overall business performance.
Our approach effectively combines our proven delivery frameworks, our experience and passion along with known industry best practices, (such as; Lean Six Sigma, PMBOK, Agile, RUP, BABOK, etc.) to deliver optimal client solutions.
Today, Magic Hat is a regionally focused consultancy, serving the Mid-Atlantic providing strategic and tactical BPI, RM and P&PM solutions. Magic Hat has been recognized as an INC500 Winner and four (4) years running as one of the top 100 Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies in the Philadelphia Area. Magic Hat takes tremendous pride in the reputation it’s earned becoming the trusted advisor for many companies in our areas of specialty and a “destination company” for talented consulting professionals.
Magic Hat attributes our success in large part to the culture we have established within our firm. When you are part of a team comprised of talented people with a particular set of niche skills and you combine that with a genuine passion to continuously improve the way people and organizations function, you find yourself in the midst of a powerful, highly valuable delivery machine – that’s Magic Hat Consulting.
