    CONTROL QUESTION: How do fees affect program utilization by surety companies, agents, and small businesses?

    Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) for 10 years from now:

    The ultimate goal for Utilization Trends in 10 years is to completely transform the way fees are perceived and utilized in the surety industry. We aim to have a system in place that maximizes program utilization for both surety companies, agents, and small businesses by eliminating unnecessary fees and streamlining the process.

    Our vision is to create a transparent and fair fee structure that benefits all parties involved. This will involve extensive research, data analysis, and collaboration with industry experts and stakeholders to determine the most effective approach.

    In 10 years, our goal is to have established a standard fee model that is widely adopted by surety companies and agents, with full support from small businesses. This fee structure will be based on a value-driven approach, taking into account the specific needs and challenges of each party involved.

    We also envision a digital platform that allows for real-time tracking and reporting of fees, providing complete transparency and accountability for all transactions. This will not only improve efficiency but also reduce potential disputes and noncompliance.

    With our efforts, we aim to increase program utilization for small businesses, which will ultimately drive economic growth and create jobs. This will also lead to a healthier and more competitive surety industry as a whole.

    Our big hairy audacious goal is nothing short of revolutionizing the fee structure in the surety industry and making it a model for other industries to follow. We believe that by achieving this goal, we can have a significant impact on the success of businesses and the overall economy.

    Utilization Trends Case Study/Use Case example – How to use:


    A leading insurance company, ABC Insurance, was facing a decline in program utilization by surety companies, agents, and small businesses. The client wanted to understand the impact of fees on program utilization and determine potential strategies to increase utilization. As a consulting firm, our objective was to help the client by conducting a thorough analysis of utilization trends and providing recommendations to improve program utilization.

    Consulting Methodology:

    We adopted a three-phase approach to address the client′s problem. These phases included:

    1. Data Collection and Analysis: In this phase, we gathered data from various internal and external sources. Internal data sources included historical program utilization data, fee structure information, and customer feedback. External sources included industry reports, competitor analysis, and market trends.

    2. Utilization Trends Analysis: In this phase, we used statistical techniques to analyze the data collected in the first phase. We identified patterns and trends in program utilization, and conducted a regression analysis to determine the impact of fees on program utilization.

    3. Recommendation Development: Based on the findings from the previous phases, we developed recommendations for the client to improve program utilization. These recommendations were focused on adjusting fees, creating promotional offers, and implementing targeted marketing strategies.


    Our deliverables included a comprehensive report highlighting the key findings from our data analysis and recommendations to improve program utilization. The report also included a proposed implementation plan to execute the recommendations effectively.

    Implementation Challenges:

    During our analysis, we faced some challenges that affected the accuracy of our results. These challenges included inconsistencies in data collection methods, incomplete data, and limited availability of relevant data. To overcome these challenges, we collaborated with the client′s team and relied on expert opinions to validate our findings.


    To track the success of our recommendations, we identified the following key performance indicators (KPIs):

    1. Program Utilization Rate: This KPI measured the percentage of surety companies, agents, and small businesses utilizing the program before and after the implementation of our recommendations.

    2. Revenue Generated: This KPI tracked the increase in revenue generated from the program after implementing our recommendations.

    3. Customer Satisfaction: We measured customer satisfaction through surveys and feedback to determine if the recommended changes had a positive impact on their perception of the program.

    4. Market Share: This KPI indicated any significant changes in the client′s market share compared to its competitors, which would reflect the effectiveness of our strategy in increasing program utilization.

    Management Considerations:

    To ensure a successful implementation of the recommendations, we advised the client to consider the following management considerations:

    1. Budget Allocation: The client needed to allocate resources to fund the recommended changes, including adjusting fees and implementing marketing strategies.

    2. Monitoring and Evaluation: Continuous monitoring and evaluation of the KPIs were crucial in determining the success of the recommendations and identifying any areas that may require further improvement.

    3. Stakeholder Engagement: Since the recommended changes could impact different stakeholders, effective communication and collaboration with all stakeholders were essential for a successful implementation.


    1. In a whitepaper by Deloitte, ′Understanding Utilization Trends in Insurance Programs,′ it is suggested that changes in customer behavior, including their satisfaction with the program and fees, can significantly impact program utilization.

    2. A study published in the International Journal of Economics and Finance, ′The Impact of Fees on Program Participation among Small Businesses,′ found that high fees can be a barrier to program participation for small businesses.

    3. According to MarketResearch.com, one of the main factors affecting program utilization in the insurance industry is the changing fee structure and varying fees across competitors.


    After conducting a thorough analysis of utilization trends affecting the client′s program, we found that fees played a crucial role in program utilization. Our recommendations focused on adjusting fees and implementing targeted marketing strategies showed promising results. Upon implementing our recommendations, the client saw a 15% increase in program utilization and a steady growth in revenue. With continuous monitoring and evaluation of the KPIs, the client was able to maintain the increase in program utilization and improve customer satisfaction.
