CORPorate experience


You may know some of our friends…

"What is not understood cannot be managed."

"What is not experienced cannot be appreciated."

We are a group of business and technology leaders, intrapreneurs, and life-long learners with extensive management, strategy, and execution experience from some of the top global corporations.

Traditional consultants are great when output can be precisely specified, complexity can be contained, the business requirements/expectations do not change often, and surprises during the project execution are low.

But what if your situation is more like the roles we performed during our corporate careers? Filled with opportunities, but hard to define exact specifics and no matter which consulting firm created hundreds of pages of presentation material what works finally is a combination of internal discussions, long hours of whiteboard sessions, in-depth analysis, several coffees a day, and  multiple rounds of discussions with critical stakeholders while being totally aware of organizational challenges and political undercurrents.

At Khyanafi, some of us have worked together for over a decade or have been business partners for many years. A few of us have been friends for decades and are now coming together to do what we love professionally. Some members of our team are consultants who we engaged for our work in corporate roles, and some are exceptional professional referrals we received from people we trust.

But whatever be our background and experiences, what unites us is our deep data and analytics leadership experience at several global corporations with a strong sense of situational reality and discerning practicality in our approach.

Driven by strategic innovation and continuous improvement, we are a team that never misses an opportunity to dive into complex and highly challenging problems.


If we are a good match for working together, we introduce you to one of our leaders who will partner with you to deliver on your aspirations. We assure you that we will not leave you to deal with junior-level, inexperienced people.



Your problems and opportunities are not isolated

Your strategy and solutions shouldn't be either

Experience is a great teacher. When you are in a position of seeing projects through from conception to implementation and continued use to support, it enables you to know why some projects work well while others fail to deliver on expectations.

We have our successes and failures we learned from. Based on that deep learning, we have defined the KHYANA5D model for Data, Analytics, and Digital programs. 

The basis for the model is our set of core beliefs:
  • All value-driving work within companies is interconnected
  • Isolated efforts seldom yield results
  • "Think global, act local" is very much real in this area
  • Align with the four pillars - people, process, data and technology
  • "If it ain't broke, don't improve it" does not work anymore
  • Organizational design is fluid and different problems, and programs need different approaches to talent and team set-up
  • Technology is only an enabler and will continuously change and evolve
  • Lean, six-sigma, continuous improvement, mistake-proofing, process improvement, and strategic process innovation are not just for manufacturing firms alone; every company can benefit from these transferable ideas
  • Governance and controls are not necessarily restrictive; when correctly set-up at optimal levels, they help prevent rework, avoid loss of goodwill, help improve productivity, and grow the business
one Goal:ONE TEAM


Your talent pool may be from different companies, vendors, or geographic regions.

What matters is that we work as a single team to deliver results.

Data leaders do not fail due to a lack of tools, technology, or infrastructure - enough is being invested in these.

When missteps occur, it is often a result of a combination of incorrect planning (assessment, prioritization, scoping, etc.), lack of right talent, absence of early wins, lower levels of executive or business user support, engagement, adoption, marketing, or a combination thereof.

This level of know-how is beyond technology or process knowledge. It is something that comes with direct experience dealing with situations like yours. 

Our outcome-focused 1-Team/1-Goal approach ensures we collaborate with your internal teams, vendors, and partners alike to achieve the goals set forth.

There is strength in diversity. When differences across the title, job function, employee, consultant, vendor, and geographic/location boundaries become unimportant, what remains is one team with a single goal.

This type of team can learn from each other, complement skills, bring varied experience, and move fast over hurdles that come up.

How do we know this process works?

We have used this many times during our corporate roles at varying levels of complexity, responsibility, authority, budget ownership, and span of influence.

This approach leverages the inherent need of every individual on the project, to contribute and learn for personal and team achievement.
