"Welcome, I'm a management consultant..."

I help clients to drive their business more precise strategically, to organize and manage it aptly and effectively, and to make the right and well-informed decisions, as well to tackle changes in order to strengthen competitive advantage and to support sustainable growth

Hello, I'm Vitaly Shershidsky, I help people run their businesses. I passionately love my job and I like the idea to make our world a little better place by improving a business of my clients. What I do is called management consulting or, as is more common in Russia, business consulting. In other words, I am a professional management consultant. This means that I have a university degree in economics, major in "Management", and some additional special training in operational and strategic management fields. In recent years, I have had extensive practice in the area of strategy and its execution.

More than 15 years my work has been helping to make business more efficient. In 2009 I established a small strategic consulting house Acumen Partners, I'm managing partner there. Since 2013 I am a partner at European allocate International as well.

I live in Moscow, Russian Federation. The geography of my work often extends beyond the Moscow Ring Road, the borders of Russia and the continent's shores. Wherever your business is located, I will be glad to help you to manage it more accurate and efficiently.

This is where you may find useful articles and tips, a description of my services and experience, and some details about my person.
