PR Newswire

RADNOR, Pa., Aug. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- WGroup, a leading management consulting firm today announced that it was named to Inc. magazine's 37th annual Inc. 5000 list. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.

"The Inc. 5000 is where the greatest companies in the world got their starts. And we're truly honored to be sharing the same spotlight today. This is a significant milestone for us and a validation of our unique approach to digital transformation," said Jeff Vail, CEO of WGroup. "Our mission is to be the world's most insightful information technology (IT) advisors. We deliver on that vision with experienced practitioners, proven methodologies, solid economic analysis, and a DNA of collaboration. This accomplishment is a testament to our clients' recognition of our unique approach and value."

Digital transformation is the primary focus of WGroup. But unlike other firms who chase over-hyped, unproven technologies, WGroup recognizes that the real problem is with legacy IT—the accumulation of old technologies, skills, and processes that paralyze organizations.

"Many companies can't act on their digital strategies due to existing constraints within the organization such as a lack of funding, skills, and capacity," said Harry Wallaesa, Founder and Chairman of WGroup. "We call this gap the digital transformation chasm and it's every organization's biggest threat."

In May, WGroup released Crossing the Digital Transformation Chasm, a strategy brief aimed at helping business leaders improve the efficacy of their digital initiatives and solve the challenges preventing the organization from becoming a modern digital business.

"The risk of being 'Amazoned' or 'Ubered' has never been higher, and every large business is under increasing threat," said WGroup CEO Jeff Vail. "Business leaders need to act swiftly to cross the digital chasm or risk going out of business."
