Solve Your Problems

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 apply the right blend of onsite and people using remote technology on an hourly, daily, retainer, or deliverable basis.

We don't have a 'bench' so we can use the right, and only the right, people on your engagement.

Tips for a Smooth Consulting Engagement Start

  • We advise that you have at least a few deliverables in mind, and that you remain flexible in case our findings indicate changing those deliverables or point toward other work that should be done, or in case we jointly decide to go another way...
  • It is very frequent that the engagement morphs away from what was originally expected, due to our assessment and recommendations.
  • Change Management may be needed on your part for best results... We do not want to be in the majority of projects with mediocre results due to not following through to win the hearts and minds of your employees. Training frequently helps here.
  • Please calendar time as needed to participate in the engagement, weekly at least.
  • Assign a 'Handler' to assist the hiring executive to arrange for myriad questions and small things. 'Handler' should have access to people, files, and expediting authority to reduce processing time.
  • Arrange at least read access to business processes, templates, SharePoint, Google Drive, etc.
  • We follow WEDIAKPO2!TM Ask us about Write Everything Down In A Known Place Once, Online!TM
  1. If you want a conversation to remain confidential, be sure and point that out to ensure we understand.
  2. If you or a delegee to review documents before posting publicly, especially Risk Registers or Reports, please let us know to keep them confidential until reviewed.
  3. Please pre-arrange collaborative document area access in a shared document space where everyone involved in the engagement can edit.

Communication should be early and often, in person whenever practical, via screen share if not

  • Planning - is always recommended in appropriate measure
  • Change Management - will likely take significant resources and communication
  • Expectations - critical to understand what is possible and how to get there
