We Ask The Tough Question First
We ask the tough question first: Why do you need a consultant in the first place?
We want to understand what event transpired or changed that is now motivating your firm to reach out for help. Getting a solid understanding of your goals and requirements is critical to making the engagement a success.
You may be even more surprised when we propose only a limited engagement, or perhaps that there may even be a better option than using our services. We'll be the first to admit that sales are not our strongpoint! But we sleep well at night knowing the engagements we enter into add real, sustainable value to our clients and are personally fulfilling for us. If the adage is true that ”the proof is in the pudding," then our pudding is our testimonials.
We appreciate and are happy to acknowledge that most of our clients typically don’t need a consultant!
Our clients are well-managed, solid firms, who don’t pass on potential new business. At some point the natural effect of running a tight ship is that when an unexpected opportunity arises, the best of the best still run out of one of the three magic ingredients: Time, Money and Resources.
- Time is a precious commodity. You have other important goals and commitments that are already scheduled.
- Money is usually a consideration. You simply don't have the budget (or desire!) to hire a full-time senior manager.
- Resources are constantly stretched. A firm that runs well does not have senior, experienced staff with plenty of excess time.
You need a highly qualified firm that has the skills, experience, contacts and background to fit your needs. Just as importantly, you need a resource you can trust, who can come up to par quickly.
