We do things a bit differently, and that's the way we like it!
The firm employs both regular employees and free lance consultants (as 1099 Contractors), along with partners capable of performing projects for clients in all 50 States. The firm behaves as a Virtual Consulting Company that can bring the right and best resources in the just-in-time mode for the right projects and the right clients. Right projects are the ones that we have the skills and expertise in. We don’t accept projects that we can not bring to a successful and mutually beneficial conclusion. Right clients are the ones that are eager to change/transform, improve, learn, and grow.
We believe in the mantra of “Grow or Die”. We don’t work for clients that have the attitude of “Let the consultant do it”, or “We will continue what the consultants started after they leave”. Our best clients are the ones that want to work with us shoulder-to-shoulder so that we can solve problems together, set a new direction together, and make progress together. Great clients are hungry and thirsty for knowledge transfer and technology transfer. They want to take and leverage our ideas, views, guidance, tools, methodologies, education, training, and encouragement to take charge of their own destiny and own transformation.
