Litmus Group (Litmus) is a management consultancy firm specialising in the creation of tangible value through the realisation of strategy. We partner with clients and their teams to translate their strategic intent into the outcomes they had envisaged.
We are an employee-owned firm with a committed and talented team that is driven by the strategic value we can add to our clients’ businesses. We have offices across Australia and in Singapore.
Litmus has access to international expertise through its global membership of Highland Worldwide, an international partnership of locally focused consulting companies with common values. Through this partnership, we offer our clients the global knowledge and cross-industry experience from more than 2500 consultants in 50 offices around the world.
In 1998, Litmus was born with a clear mandate: to partner with clients to realise their strategic goals. We were then, and we remain today, a new breed of management consulting firm that is driven by value.
Our values are the cornerstone of our beliefs, defining who we are and how we do things. We are authentic in everything we do:
Integrity: We are open and honest in our dealings with others.
Enthusiasm: We are motivated by what we do and aim to exceed the expectation of our clients.
Respect: We have a respectful attitude to our clients and colleagues.
We are ambitious, intelligent and driven by values.
Our unique culture encourages open and honest communication and collaboration in everything we do. At Litmus, everyone has a right to be heard and an obligation to listen. Although we have different experiences and different roles in our organisation, we are ultimately all on the same team working towards the same outcomes.
Promoting work/life balance, Litmus has established a range of programs and policies to support the changing needs of our people.
Our health and wellbeing scheme, called Fitmus, aims to promote excellence in the health of the Litmus team and focuses on celebrating and improving the quality of life for all employees.
Litmus caters for part-time employment for mothers returning to the workforce and provides 10 weeks of paid maternity leave, as well as two weeks of paid paternity leave.
Litmus is committed to being a socially responsible organisation. We maintain this commitment by embracing environmental sustainability and providing back to our community as a values-based business.
We are proud to have been recognised as a BRW Best Place to Work in 2009 and 2010, a survey that formally recognises the value we place on our dynamic workforce and the investment we make in our people.
The Litmus Oxfam team 2011
Litmus was founded in Brisbane in May, 1998, by Don Blair, a 25-year veteran at Ernst and Young, 12 of them as a Partner in its management consulting division.
Litmus grew from Don’s first-hand experience of how many organisations were willing to invest in strategic planning, but how few committed the resources or had the skills needed to implement these new directions.
We work with many of Australia’s top and mid-tier companies, statutory authorities, government business enterprises and government departments. Current and previous clients include Rio Tinto Coal, Harvey Norman, QR, Australia Post, Sydney Water, AGL, Queensland Gas Corporation, Energex, Skilled Engineering, Department of Defence, National Australia Bank, Telstra, and many more.
Litmus is now headquartered in Melbourne, with offices in Brisbane, Sydney and Singapore. Managing Partner Brad Miller took over leadership of the firm in 2008 from Don Blair.
Our success has enabled us to continue to grow, expand our services and deepen our expertise. We are a tight-knit team of expert consultants and professional staff now numbering more than 90, and driven by the value we can add to your business.
