1. I know my business best. Why should I hire you?
No doubt. It is a fact that we will never know your business or industry as well as you do. However, a change management consultant can help with tactical and strategic organizational change management issues that you don’t have the time or capacity to address. We work with a variety of clients across many industries and bring the best industry practices from several disciplines for your benefit. And let’s not forget that even the best performers leverage outside advice to continually improve.
2. How is a change consulting project organized and started?
Mostly everything can be tailored to your business needs and organizational goals. We will first start with a FREE consultation to discover your business goals and challenges. Once we establish that we can help your business, we will proceed with a proposal outlining the scope of work, deliverables, recommendations, pricing and timeline. After the project is complete, we will host an official closeout with lessons learned and steps to ensure everything is working as it should. Our goal is for you to sustain results over the long term.
3. How do you work with your clients?
People support what they help create. With this simple yet effective approach we work closely alongside our clients. Fancy presentations and fancy systems don’t produce RESULTS. Our clients are experts in what they do and we are experts in bringing out the best tools, ideas and approaches on how to handle the toughest business transformation challenges. Our entire process focusses on encouraging communication, change management initiatives and discovery of all your organizational knowledge. With this approach, you will have immediate skill transfer to help you build momentum and make sure your newly acquired skills stick.
4. How quickly will I see results?
Very quickly, certainly within the first 90 days. It is worth stating, though, that an organizational change consultant is only effective if you are committed to learning and implementing change and are open to being helped and taught how to improve your business. If you have been in business for a while, you will know that ‘quick fixes’ don’t work, and meaningful improvement takes time. It normally takes 12 months to effect significant change. You will, however, see small improvements in your business each month, which add up to significant overall improvement.
5. What differentiates your firm from other consulting firms?
We are seasoned Big 5 consulting professionals who combine the expertise and disciplined approach of a large firm; yet have the agility of a small boutique firm that delivers practical, NO cookie-cutter solutions. Unlike most traditional consulting firms, we are putting emphasis on understanding your organization and delivering value by tailoring our services to your business. Your challenges are unique; thus, we don’t believe in the usual “one-vanilla strategy” for every client engagement. Change is complicated, and the “one-size-fits-all” approach doesn’t work. Our size, agility and cost-effective solutions will help you build something that works well and will work well for a long time.
6. How can my company afford another consulting firm?
If you are here, that means something didn’t work out as planned, and you are still looking for help. The real question you should be asking is, how can you afford not to hire someone else to help you out with your organizational change issues? As we all know, business challenges only get worse, not better. More importantly, you need to partner with a consulting firm that can actually deliver ‘results’… not just any results, but results that will positively impact your business and breathe new life into your company. That’s why our initial consultation with a potential new client is a no-cost, no-risk meeting where we can determine if we can provide a viable, cost-effective solution to you, and more importantly, you can learn more about our firm and whether we would be a good fit for you and your company.
