Revel Launches the Revel Foundry, Supports the Next Generation of Knowledge Workers

Revel Consulting Is Redefining the Experience of Working for and With a Consulting Firm

KIRKLAND, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- Earlier this week, Revel Consulting introduced The Revel Foundry: a platform where people can come together to experiment, find inspiration and forge new solutions. The platform consists of spaces, experiences and information -- spanning the physical, digital or ethereal -- to better serve the emerging generation of consultants and distributed knowledge workers.

"We've been in internal beta for five months and exploring these concepts for much longer than that," said Michael Nguyen, Manager and change agent behind the Revel Foundry. "We're thrilled to finally engage the rest of the world!"

The Revel Foundry was born out of the convergence of several concepts and internal test-pilots. Some of those were around optimizing Revel associates' experience of working at the firm and working with their clients.

"I've spent the past several years soul searching on how a consulting firm can make the largest impact to the people and organizations it works with," said Revel CEO Vikas Kamran. "It really comes down to the concept of creating enough 'space' to support and accelerate the desires of our customers -- both clients and associates alike."

The Revel Foundry is for people who have the burning desire to accelerate achievements and take ownership over their development, personally and professionally. This is the ethereal space the Revel Foundry occupies; the intrinsic drive for growth, innovation and novelty.

"Most people in Fortune 500 companies don't consider themselves to be entrepreneurs," Kamran said. "But, in reality most of them are collaborating with a large team -- with potentially competing visions and political structures -- to deliver amazing products or services which create customer experiences. Our goal is to spark their fire and create a movement by imbuing them with 'intrepreneurialism' -- a deliberate purpose anyone can associate with."

The Revel Foundry creates a number of physical spaces. These most frequently take the form of workshops for divergent and convergent ideation. The goal of these workshops are to create an engaging experience by unleashing the creativity of each participant and making a pre-defined vision of success come to life.

"Peers and competitors increasingly have access to the same information, technologies and talent pools due to globalization, the Internet and social media," said Tim Bowman, Revel's Manager of Strategy & Insights. "The differentiator is no longer the information or the people, it's how those people come together to leverage those resources; it's not about what we do, it's about how we do it."

With that industry shift in mind, Revel is opening up its knowledge center to the public through the creation of RevelFoundry.com. It will host 4-types of freely-accessible content: Found -- Curated links from across the web on what we're reading to stay relevant and commentary on why it's important; Insights -- Consumable aggregation of capabilities, industry research and trends; Spaces -- Stories about workshops, events and other experiences; Tools -- Useful tools, templates and frameworks Revelers use often. The addition of tools will be coming soon.

"We're after something specific," said Kamran. "We want to bring together not just the problem solvers, but the problem seekers. Individuals who can look beyond symptoms and see an underlying cause. People who see problems as opportunities to affect change, whether that's optimizing how something is being done today or creating something new entirely."

The beta site of RevelFoundry.com is currently live and accessible with content published from a select group of contributors from the firm. More stories, insights, tools and curated links are posted regularly. Pending results of the beta site and model, Revel has future plans to open the platform to all of its associates and clients to contribute, collaborate and co-create this new paradigm of knowledge work.
