Methodology & Qualifications (Service Delivery)
Our Methodology: Project-based
Typically, Companies may be described overall in the following manner from a Business Management standpoint:
Consistently with our Values and in order to tackle the above, in full or in its respective parts, our methodology is based on top quality Project Management and Execution and related Generation of Deliverables for our clients, with a "closed" price or Fees specific to each Project, by which we realize the solutions our clients need in a tangible, results-oriented way.
We can adopt both Agile / Scrum approaches, or more classic Project management ones; sometimes we also work on a rate per hour or per day, on a more "ongoing" basis or on speaking/mentoring assignments.
Emphasis on one specific Project Phase (ie more on Analysis/Diagnosis vs. more on Solution design, Implementation or Deployment, for example), or comprehensively on all Project Phases, depends on the client need:
We deliver these Project Phases and our services in general with nimble, ad-hoc teams created for the specific Client requirements, able to swiftly react and adjust under changing priorities.
Content areas of our work, Deliverables, and pricing of our services
Content areas or types of Projects we deal with, directly or with our exclusive network of specialists, are the ones from our five different Service lines: Management & Digital Advisory, Investments & Business Plans, Reward, Board Affairs and Equity-based Pay, Organizational Design & Processes, People Skills, Agile Leadership & Change, and Other Professional Services.

Workshops facilitated / Projects successfully finished
Teams integrated and working differently
We normally work under a pre-agreed "closed" specific Project price (Fees); sometimes we are asked to cooperate on a more 'ongoing' basis or on speaking/mentoring assignments, charging a specific rate per hour or day, or more rarely, even via a fair percentage / return on a deal or transaction.
Our lean internal structure allows us to operate with efficient fees / revenues for our interventions, usually with Project / Retainer fees, but also with other ‘win-win’ propositions, reasonable cost per hour / day, etc. In this regard, as opposed to other consultants, we never overcharge our clients unfairly or make them bear our own structural/"heavy team" costs or expenses.
How it works in practice
If the need essentially requires to find a previously undefined solution to a business, technology or organizational challenge, this may imply on our part :
Or, if the challenge is to make a pre-defined decision, plan or change effective, be it implementing a business unit strategy, a transformation of a salesforce process, an app development or roll-out, a technology integration of an acquired company, a new work dynamics of a team, etc. :
Specific examples of our Projects and interventions can be seen in our Client Stories.
