There are times when you should absolutely own an initiative yourself or build the internal skills. There are also many circumstances when it makes more sense to hire an independent, expert Advisor. We can offer a level of expertise and business experience that you may not have internally and can’t justify hiring. Perhaps you’re testing the waters before scaling up, or need deep expertise for only a short period, or simply want to move quickly and lean on industry experience. An Advisor can offer unbiased, executive level perspective and hands-on business impact while you focus on other parts of your business.

Having worked on both sides of the consulting relationship, we have learned the value and the limitations of strategy. While it’s important to be pointed in the right direction, you won’t know if you are until you execute, evaluate, and learn. Working through this cycle quickly, applying LEAN techniques, and adjusting rapidly is essential for today’s business. Few of our clients need help figuring out the right strategy; the focus is always on getting to the market quickly, learning, and adapting.

It used to be that loyalty programs came in two sizes: paper punch cards for the local sandwich shop or the large-scale software/consulting implementation teams for national retailers or airlines. While these programs proved tremendously successful if done well, they don’t fit the needs of small restaurant or retail chains, or the shopping mall operator. Thankfully, a number of new solutions have emerged to fill this gap and can be implemented quickly and provide great returns. The challenge now is to pick the right one for you, and integrate it effectively into your business operations.

Many businesses need specific expertise or an experienced executive from time to time but do not need a full-time addition to the payroll. Our desire is to help you when and how you need it, and to help you build and scale your own capabilities over time. We are happy to structure relationships as project based, retainer based, or as an interim Business Development or Sales executive. Whatever fits the business situation and your needs.

As we jointly define your business needs, we will discuss and agree on financial arrangements that work for both of us. Longer engagements enable us to plan more effectively and therefore earn discounted rates. We are happy to include performance incentives and stock options as portions of the fees, if that fits the nature and impact of the work.
