 Inspirant Group, the award-winning, disruptive management consulting firm, has announced the introduction of a new practice area, Operational Agility, to address the increasing needs for organizational change and operations effectiveness. Saman (Sam) Pourkermani will serve as Practice Lead, moving into a newly established role. Previously, he was Director, Digital Transformation and Product Development at the Company.  

 “In working with Fortune 500 companies on large scale transformation initiatives, we observed an increasing need for organizations to maintain their competitive advantage while keeping up with the constantly changing demands of today’s global marketplace,” explains Meighan Newhouse, CEO and Co Founder, Inspirant Group. “As experts in Agile, our Operational Agility practice will address these issues to help clients to stay innovative and maximize efficiencies.”  

 “I’m thrilled to introduce Inspirant Group’s Operational Agility practice to assist our clients in staying innovative while advancing existing systems and broadening capabilities,” explains Sam Pourkermani, Practice Lead, Operational Agility, Inspirant Group. “As hands-on partners, our team will help clients to be more nimble and responsive when change is required while actualizing measurable, bottom-line results.”  

 The Operational Agility Practice works with Fortune 500 companies on large-scale ($105M+) transformation initiatives which optimize delivery performance by applying Lean and Agile principles. With a focus on four distinct areas: Operational Effectiveness Assessment, Enterprise Operational Model & Design, Team Operational Model & Design, and Strategic Project Selection, clients significantly enhance delivery speed, quality, employee engagement and productivity. Through deep collaboration, learning, and intentional listening, we uncover "what can be." This includes designing and applying strategies to build a more efficient and effective operating model, so they are faster, and responsive to rapid changes.  


Founded in 2017, Inspirant Group is the award-winning, remote-first management “UNconsulting” firm that takes companies from inspiration to transformation. By stripping away the bureaucracy and complexity associated with the traditional “big 4” and mid-tier consulting firms, Inspirant’s team of UNconsultants delivers high touch service and advises clients in three service lines: Strategy & Operational Agility, Talent & Organization, and Technology & Data. This mirrors the company’s approach to any engagement: optimize processes, ensure the right people are in the right seats, and make the tech and data work for the client (and not the other way around). Headquartered in Chicagoland, Illinois, Inspirant is Certified™ by Great Place to Work®, the employee experience award, and was honored with two 2022 Built In awards including Best Remote-First Places to Work in the US and 22 StartUps to Watch in Chicago.
