Methodology & Qualifications (Service Delivery)

Our Methodology: Project-based

Typically, Companies may be described overall in the following manner from a Business Management standpoint:

Even if we are excellent researchers and speakers, we are not "armchair" advisors - instead, we go together with our clients in their transformation journeys with a collaborative, facilitative yet rigorous work style, so that the solutions and designs are brought into their real, day-to-day practice.

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 extensible as needed, 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:

  • Internal data sources and documents
  • External information, databases and benchmarks
  • Interviews and workshops

  • Quantitative / financial / statistical
  • Qualitative / written / verbal
  • Other studies
  • Facts, findings and diagnostics

  • Overall Solutions’ Architecture / Recommendations
  • Quick wins / prototypes / minimum viable products
  • Design of full Solutions
  • Action Plans
  • New processes, procedures and responsibilities
  • IT configuration and adoption
  • New documents and forms
  • Communication, Training, Change Management
  • Possible Co-Investment

  • Measurement of success
  • Verification of day-to-day use
  • Support in internal and external audits
  • Identification of future improvements

We deliver these Project Phases and our services in general with nimblead-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 allied specialists, are the ones from our five different Service linesManagement & Digital AdvisoryInvestments & Business PlansReward, Board Affairs and Executive RemunerationOrganizational Design & ProcessesPeople Skills, Agile Leadership & Change, and Other Professional Services.

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 :

  • Rigorous external / internal research, analysis and presentation of insights.
  • Running of structured Visioning and Facilitation workshops, or direct recommendation of a solution by ourselves.
  • Co-creation with the client of a full, specific Action Plan to actually create and/or implement such solution - or direct Action Plan generation by us.

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. :

  • We set up the right internal/external Solution Design and/or Solution Implementation specialist or operational teams for you, with or without adding resources of our own.
  • We effectively lead / help co-lead those teams during the allocated Project period.
  • We ensure the specialists achieve the adequate milestones and results within expected quality, time and budget, and that the business / organizational improvement happens to everyone's satisfaction.

Specific examples of our Projects and interventions can be seen in our Client Stories.
