Business success depends on choosing the right objectives - then successfully managing the complex ecology of risks, problems and opportunities to achieve those objectives
How We Accomplish It
We show executives and senior managers how they can gain more realistic insights into their pressing business decisions through tailored problem, risk and opportunity assessments and analyses. We provide executives and managers with insights that help them diagnose their business problems and seperate those problems from their symptoms. This encourages the right questions to be asked about the right problems, creating meaningful answers found from facts, not generalities or opinion. Our approach fosters creative solutions, as well as an understanding of the intended and unintended consequences of these solutions. We leave executives with proven innovative conceptual models, tools and processes that allow their organizations to create the best value possible from the corporate resources already invested or those about to be invested. Finally, we demonstrate to executives and managers how the artful, but aggressive management of risk can be used as a practical and powerful competitive weapon.
What We Won't Do
We do not presume to know your business better than you do. What we do provide, however, is a fresh perspective to your business by bringing what we call a risk ecological experience gained through years of high profile, international assignments. We will not work with organizations that desire pro forma risk assessments, blame analyses, or after-the-fact justifications for decisions already made or pseudo-analyses to tell someone what they want to hear. We are not in business to make anyone feel good. If your organization isn't interested in confronting possible unpleasant realities, doesn't wish to understand how to fail correctly rather than to blunder badly, or doesn't desire to get better at making critical business decisions, then your money would be better spent elsewhere.
While we work primarily on a selective referral basis, we will take on any project, regardless of size or scope, if it involves an intellectually interesting problem and we feel we can make a difference.
