Dr. Lambert Montevecchi

Founder & Managing Director

Boost Consulting

Lambert has spent 24 years working for leading international management consulting firms focused on performance improvement, business transformation and cost reduction.

(Alexander Proudfoot, MCGplc, Hitachi Consulting, Renoir Group) In these companies, he held senior executive positions as business process analyst, head of auditing and assessment, business development VP and country manager.

The experience accumulated during those years conducting performance assessments and driving change management projects for more than 200 clients belonging to the world’s leading multinational corporations, government organizations, as well as to large and medium sized private companies in all types of industries and services in 36 countries, has provided Lambert with a truly global vision.

This business vision was further enhanced by spending 3 years working for the Exigen Group, a San Francisco based, multinational information technology corporation operating in the field of digital platforms for the telecommunication and financial services industry as well as offshore BPO (Business Process Outsourcing).

Lambert applied his business analysis skills to bridge information technology with operational needs and constraints and perfected his understanding of how to make them work best in the client’s interest. In 2007 Lambert decided to apply his change management expertise to the Healthcare sector by creating Boost Consulting.

Boost was founded with a mission to implement process, systems, organizational and behavioral changes in healthcare delivery, in order to improve the patient pathway; its quality and performance, whilst achieving measurable operational and financial gains.

Lambert and his team had observed that most management consultancy firms greatly underestimated the extreme complexity of healthcare and that none where offering integrated and tailor-made solutions to simultaneously address the four (processes, systems, organization, behavior) pillars of a change management program.

This insight spurred Boost to truly focus on the patient, not just in words but in action, and develop a unique approach to concurrently implement process, systems, organizational and behavioral improvements in healthcare institutions around the world.

Boost has carried out 25 projects for major hospitals in four continents and all are references. Lambert continues to act as an advisor and analyst for management consulting firms and is an “ambassador” for several hospitals.

Lambert is multicultural: French citizen, attending English, American, French schools and universities in Africa, Europe and the USA. Trilingual in English, French and Italian. Holds a PhD in political science and international relations. Lives near Milan, Italy
