"Sometimes youíre ready for a change and sometimes you arenít. Itís easy to delegate things you donít like to do or donít do well. Itís harder to stop doing things that you enjoy and that youíre good at because it is no longer the highest and best use of your time or is not the best thing for your business. Hardest of all is to change your way of being."

Executive Leader, 2008-2009

We Meet a Companyís Need for Consulting

In organizations, there are competing commitments and demands for output. Leaders seek to respond efficiently and to identify innovative ways to deliver on accelerated timelines. As consultants, we use our content expertise, strategic analysis or facilitated problem solving skills to support the work of organizations and teams. Firms seek us out for our ability to direct and lead the consulting effort. With our consulting, projects are completed early or on time, and our clients hit the mark with new product roll-outs the first time!

On a project basis, we work with organizations to execute on strategic business issues, such as:
  • Strategic planning
  • Market analysis
  • Product development strategies: concept testing, competitor analysis, marketing, placement
  • Evaluation: Customer & Alliance Partner relationship management
