James M. Kerr

Partner at BlumShapiro


James M. Kerr is a management consultant and organizational behaviorist. He specializes in strategic planning, corporate transformation and project & program development. For more than 20 years, Jim has forged a different type of consulting practice – one that does its engagements “with” its clients, instead of “to” them.

Whether helping larger organizations, like The Home Depot re-imagine its store operations, or advising smaller firms, like specialty insurer Jewelers Mutual open up new markets, Jim has a reputation of making a difference.

A recognized thought leader, Jim continues to provide cutting edge solutions to his clients through a strong dedication to research and study. The Executive Checklist (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014) is Jim’s fourth business strategy book and is available in stores, now. It is a testament to his commitment to helping leaders improve the ways in which they guide and shape their organizations.
