as mentioned on our Home Page is, indeed, a unique organization.
We are not a traditional
consulting firm . . . we do not operate in an advisory capacity only,
issue recommendations and white papers, and then stand aside. Rather,
we prefer to assume responsibility and risk as we serve our clients and
offer them whatever scope of executive management and planning is
needed. Our associates are highly mobile, generate very little
overhead and can provide, on short notice, a single senior executive or
a complete executive management team, all experienced in
challenge/problem situations. Further, these people have worked
together before and can be utilized in a cost-effective, as needed
basis, by a company that, for whatever reason, has been unable or does
not have the time to acquire this kind of talent.
The economies we offer are vested in
our ability to conduct our engagements in a knowledgeable, but efficient, manner.
On your direction, we will proceed as follows:
(1) Identify the
critical problems (not "symptoms") and submit a remedial plan.
(2) Assign those
Associates that are necessary to begin plan execution and designate at
least one to serve at risk and at the pleasure of your Board of
Directors or its designate.
(3) Manage the remedial
effort to completion. This includes the recruitment (if
necessary) and training of incumbent personnel to perpetuate the
renewed condition of the institution. Facilitating the prompt
withdrawal of our Associates' participation while leaving the business in
the hands of properly trained (and, comparatively, less expensive)
talent is a critical part of our business plan.
(4) Firm members' time
and expenses are incurred only as needed. Over-all fees for
services are tailored to the individual company and established in
