Tiburon believes that while many former industry-experienced executives claim to be consultants, the training that Tiburon's principals have received at leading management consulting firms makes it one of the few firms truly able to deliver strategic-level multi-disciplinary advice to CEOs and other senior executives. Tiburon's core strength is in assisting CEOs and other senior executives in developing business strategies for new, growing, or lagging businesses.

While having experience in marketing, sales, operations, technology, organizational, and human resources issues, Tiburon believes that corporate strategy must lead. The twin keys though, in Tiburon's opinion, are to build the right processes for developing strategy and for gaining executive acceptance.
Specifically, Tiburon projects almost always include a series of client steering committee meetings and a series of research modules necessary to turn written industry knowledge into specific business strategies.
