The Toughest Business To Consult On

The toughest business to consult on is your own. It is too easy, as my mentor Alan Weiss says, “to breathe your own exhaust.” I know this for having been in business for over 20 years.

The business world has only gotten more complex.

  • How do you determine the right strategy?
  • How do you set the right priorities?
  • How do you deal with complex issues?
  • Are you addressing issues that matter to customers?
  • Is your business growing, flat-lined or in a state of decline?
  • Is your team excited or feeling pretty blazé?
  • Who do you turn to get confidential advice or to brainstorm ideas?

We offer a trusted advisor program to help leaders deal with these issues and more.

Client Testimonial:

“We needed to reduce the cycle time for a critical portion of our order acceptance process. Dave managed our re-engineering effort which resulted in fully defining our manufacturing capabilities and reducing our cycle time from 5 days to 1. This increased customer satisfaction and provided the foundation for our new configurator initiative.”

Bruce Crawford, Director, Customer Order Mgmt
