who we are

You have a problem to solve or an opportunity to harness! WE’RE PACKED - we can have one or more consultants on your site usually in 24-72 hours. Almost all engagements can be done with a blend of onsite and virtual consultants to save you travel and other hassles. Initial face-to-face meetings are standard, then we apply the right blend of onsite and virtual (people using remote technology) on an hourly, daily, retainer, or deliverable fixed fee basis. We don't have a 'bench' so we can use the right, and only the right, people on your engagement.
