vus Global Solutions has seen an
explosive growth in sales, revenue
and profitability between 2011 and
2015. Novus was designed ground
up by Founder and Managing Part-
ner Sushrut Shrotri to minimize the
firm’s carbon footprint by creating
a plastic free and paperless envi-
ronment. Consulting caught up with
Shrotri to discuss the firm’s explo-
sive 445 percent growth rate, good
enough to land the North Bruns-
wick, N.J. firm at No. 4 on this
year’s Fastest Growing Firms list.
Consulting: What were the
main factors that contributed
to your firm’s exceptional
Shrotri: Inspite of the global
economic challenges, Novus has
managed to keep its growth and
momentum for over six years. We
believe that our growth comes due
to the following factors: Novus
is the only paperless and plastic
free firm in the world; We have a
unique Agile model for our internal operations; Most people coach
Lean to other firms while having
a traditional operating cost model.
Novus has invented a new Lean delivery and operating model ground
up that focuses; Novus believes in
the P&L model and focuses on real
profits rather than perceived valuations; and, every employee of the
firm is focused on driving customer
success and believes in the Novus
model ‘OnSite consulting is lower
in TCO than any offshore model’
and delivers to success
Consulting: How is this year
shaping up for your firm?
Shrotri: We have managed to keep
our growth in revenues and profits
fairly constant to the previous year.
2016 marked a year of new ser-
vices, new markets and new indus-
try penetrations for Novus.
Consulting: How would you
describe your firm’s outlook
for 2017? Where do you see
the most opportunities?
Shrotri: Novus plans to expand its
portfolio of services as well as look
at acquisitions in 2017 to expand our
unique model of driving consulting
services onsite at a total cost lower
than offshore. We are actively looking
to acquire consulting firms in the U.S.
We are also seeing more and more
customers looking at ways to exit the
offshore model that is lethargic and
slows down their growth making their
firm more vulnerable to competition.
Consulting: What would you
say are your firm’s biggest
challenges in 2017?
Shrotri: Many large corporations
are moving their operations from
out of the country back into the US.
We see this as a positive sign for
our growth and expansion of our
unique consulting model.
Consulting: What does being
named one of Consulting’s
Fastest Growing Firms mean
to your firm, your employees
and your clients?
Shrotri: The award certainly
boosts the firm’s employee morale
as well as the firms brand image to
