Consulting


 

High Impact Consulting 
Traditional consulting often views a project in terms of the consulting product (i.e., a report, a new system installation) instead of the benefit to be derived by the client. A 'big picture' comprehensive solution often emerges paying little heed to the client organization's ability to change in order to implement the new vision. This is a labour intensive and therefore costly approach to consulting, which frequently results in a division of responsibility between the client and the consultant rather than a partnership where each learns from the other to the benefit of the project.

The result of this is a performance shortfall, where the envisaged benefits do not fully materialize because, however willing, the client has neither the resources nor the structure to successfully implement the recommendations.

High impact consulting focuses on eliminating this performance shortfall by the following means:

  • The results of projects are defined in terms of specific performance goals. 
  • There is mutual commitment between client and consultant to achieve goals by working in partnership. 
  • Project benefits to the client are prioritized into individual, sequential, rapid cycle objectives and the attention of the project team is focused exclusively on achieving one measurable objective at a time. 

Performance Focus 
The benefit to the client of high impact consulting is not only a higher level of project achievement, but also a higher level of post-project sustained performance after the consulting team leaves due to the natural process of skill transfer that takes place in a goal-orientated team environment.

Cost and Financial Benefits
We tailor our compensation to the financial capabilities of the enterprise. Whether it be cash, shares or debt there is always a performance element of the engagement that allows the client to leverage consultant time and input, thus reducing costs. The consultant's own income is linked to the successful achievement of project objectives.
