Dealing with the unexpected

Unprecedented events stifle growth. In business, the unexpected often undermines the best intended plans. When this occurs, a team of outsiders can give the situation perspective and suggest near term fixes, in addition to longer-term strategies. Often, the immediate remedies can be made with a combination of external observations and internal resources.

In Transition

Transition issues are normal. Have you just merged or acquired? Experienced rapid growth? Recently had a layoff? Hired new workers? These transition issues are more common than you might think and create unrest and uncertainty in your existing organization—whether on purpose or not. An outside group can bring fresh perspectives and proven methods that have worked in other industries.
