About Fulcrium

About Fulcrium.

Fulcrium is the engine room for powerful "transformation" benchmarking intelligence.

We specialise in data for transformational value identification to drive breakthrough performance improvement.

  • We exist for clients with high transformational value ambition. We don't do "average" or "incremental".
  • $8bn new value identified for a client on one transformation benchmarking data engagement alone. Verified. Achieved. Challenge us to show you the evidence.
  • Our approach is deliberately uncomplicated.
  • That is the Fulcrium difference.

Clients refer to Fulcrium as their “highly valuable secret intelligence resource.”

There was a great buzz in the room; VPs and EVPs really met their objective of identifying key value opportunities through the benchmarking and market intelligence; I only heard positive comments from colleagues afterwards.

So, I can’t thank Fulcrium enough for the ongoing commitment and hard work put in to the benchmarking you supply to us globally. It really wouldn’t be the same without you – great energy, amazing dedication and making a real difference to our bottom line. You should be very proud!

Our Unique Database.

Over almost two decades, Fulcrium has built a matchless database of transformation benchmarking and market intelligence from major companies across multiple sectors and in many geographies throughout Europe, the Americas, the Far East, Middle East, Asia Pacific and Africa.

Insights gained from this multi-sector and global coverage are at the heart of our genuinely transformative benchmarking and value-identification services, and are the envy of other benchmarking providers and consultancies.

The result? Our data consistently deliver evidence-backed exceptional-value opportunity-identification, and clients refer to us as their “highly valuable secret intelligence resource”.

Client Engagement.

  • We only work with ambitious clients who require transformation cost and process benchmarking for high priority, high-value opportunity-identification.
  • We are scrupulously honest and dependable in all our dealings.
  • We are single-minded about delivering on our promises.
  • We are always approachable and straightforward.
  • We value people and put them centre-stage in every engagement.
  • We want our clients to make money, and to know that our services will deliver quantifiable, substantial benefits.
  • We solve problems, not create them.
  • We get things done because we communicate and interconnect with our clients at all levels.
  • We love working with organisations where service is an essential part of the DNA – where relationships make the difference. It’s what we’re about too.

The result? Numerous long-term global relationships based on mutual trust and satisfaction.

Who We Assist.


Fulcrium only supports benchmarking requests from clients who have the budgets and mandates to:

  • Identify and unleash exceptional value.
  • Drive transformation and breakthrough performance improvement.


We do not support benchmarking data requests for:

  • Low-budget, assurance, or incremental continuous improvement.
  • Low-level, low impact "tinkering around the edges".
  • Exploratory or speculative purposes.

Over a period of some 6 months, we exceeded our value-realisation targets and the close collaboration with Fulcrium was instrumental in achieving this.

Given the requirement for specific and actionable “custom” benchmarks and market intelligence, I would engage Fulcrium again.
