About Yithro


Yithro was founded and is run by Leif Knutsen.

Leif has been in the management consulting industry for over 20 years and worked in diverse organizations (McKinsey, Accenture, Viant, m.a.partners, Detica, among others) and in a variety of roles (associate, manager, relationship manager, practice leader, internal manager, sole practitioner, and as a pinch hitter for sales). Although his focus in the last few years has been for financial institutions, he has also done significant work within life sciences, media/entertainment, transportation, chemicals, food services, and law firms. Leif's functional focus has been on helping clients deal effectively with disruptive change, and usually where technology has been an important enabler or inhibitor.

Throughout all this, he has been a student of the management consulting industry itself and has been struck by some of the more persistent problems in the industry. He has found management consulting to be an underutilized and (consequently) undervalued profession. This in spite of the fact that Leif's own experience with his colleagues are that they are nearly universally competent, principled professionals with a sincere passion for being helpful.

Yithro was founded with the goal of helping consulting and advisory professionals interact more effectively with their market.
