Like a three-legged stool (the minimum number required for stability), our approach to performance consulting has three interrelated components.
This is critical to our approach because,no matter what the project, we will not be able to complete it successfully by ourselves. We will need your active involvement in analyzing the issues, designing effective solutions, and implementing those solution. Ultimately, you are going to have to live with the results … so you will need to take ownership of the solution.
As consultants, we have a unique set of knowledge, skills and tools, as well as the benefit of a certain distance from your organization that enhances our objectivity. Combining these with your experience and working together to look at the issues from our different perspectives will enable us to create alternatives that neither of us would have generated on our own.
This second component of our consulting approach involves looking at your organization as an open system. This unique perspective looks at how the different parts of your company interact with each other to determine its overall effectiveness in responding to your environment (competitive, market, political, labor, etc.), and meeting its objectives. It also gives us a unique way of looking at “cause and effect” when helping you to analyze the challenges and opportunities facing your business.
