In an Interview with Insights Success, Eyal Iffergan, President and CEO of Hyperion Global Partners shares his insightful journey with Hyperion Global Partners.

Below are the highlights of the interview between Eyal Iffergan and Insights Success.
How do you diversify your organization’s solutions that appeal to your target audience?
In founding Hyperion Global Partners, we set out to create a new model consulting practice that challenged all of the conventional wisdom of the industry. We innovated in who we hired, the services we offered, the way we delivered those services, and how we charged for them. In many ways, we became the ‘anti-consultancy.’
We are focused on transformation. While all the other consulting companies in our industry focus on very tactical work – to install a new technology or document processes, etc. – we provide a more holistic approach to operations and information management, leading our clients through broad-based transformation programs that serve to dramatically change the way they work and the results they achieve.
Our philosophy is to always provide pragmatic, actionable and specific advice and counsel. When it comes to best practices, we’ve generally developed them. Our practices focus only on the things we do well, and we know them better than anyone else. We don’t come in to “help you figure it out.” In the areas we practice, we’ve done it before, and we’re here to help you do it, too. We know the market, we know the landscape, we know the technologies and their vendors, we know the pitfalls, and we know how to achieve the successes.
What is your approach towards the latest technological innovations? How is it changing your role?
Our innovation has borne many fruits. We not only challenged the status quo, but we have created an entirely new market in doing so – one we defined and lead. We are widely acclaimed in the marketplace for our innovative approach and have established a presence of immense influence: we advise and guide all stakeholders in the market – buyers, solution providers and investors – and are widely acknowledged as thought leaders in the legal solutions market.

Where does Hyperion Global Partners see itself in the near future and how do you plan to sustain its growth and leadership?
Our model is simple: we focus only on the areas that we know better than anyone else.
- We don’t charge by time. We believe that time is the least valuable way to measure the value we deliver. Our entire model is focused on harnessing the expertise of our team to deliver tangible, actionable, compelling solutions to our clients and to innovate in the way we deliver those solutions.
- We have assembled a team of the best and brightest in the industry to bring unparalleled expertise, with a healthy dose of pragmatism, to help our clients align and execute their strategic business objectives.
- We are not opportunists. We focus only on the areas we know better than anyone else, and our clients hire us precisely because we are the best at what we do.
- We radically changed the professional delivery model to challenge highly linear revenue model predicated on supplying people to perform tasks at an hourly rate. We pioneered the scalable professional service.
