How long does a consulting engagement last?
There are two consulting paths:
(1) Done-For-You (ideal if you have interlocking issues that require an expert) ; and
(2) Done-With-You (ideal if you have one key issue you want to solve with guided support).
The support you require, its magnitude and the complexity of your organisation will the selected path. The first step of any engagement is to listen to the client. Our approach is a combination of content and process consulting. We will assess and evaluate elements within your organisation to understand the needs and identify your challenges. In partnership with you, we then develop strategies and steps targeted at tackling the root cause of the problem. We can support to execute, implement and/or initiatives to ensure they produce visible results.
