We meet our clients at the intersection of today's needs and tomorrow's challenges.

Consulting Redefined

We're not constrained by notions of the way things are always done. We prefer thinking in "boxes without borders." This gives us the option of picking and choosing from inside, and outside, the box. What we know for sure is that the border of the box is the place where new possibilities begin. 

Our unique combination of strategy and specialists is what we call Consulting Redefined. We're the firm you call when you need big organizational development problems solved or have nagging marketing and sales concerns that require "outside in" thinking. Our teams of professionals meet with you to discuss your current situation and desired outcomes and then design a solution that meets your budget and timeline.

We're also the firm you call when you have a role to fill for a few months. Maybe it's a project requiring a subject matter expert; or a position vacated by a team member for a defined period of time. The people you select need to fit in and function quickly and we have them with myriad combinations of experience, all with resumes full of results. And when you have the need for a full-time employee, our search professionals are the best at finding the perfect candidate. In fact, we'll make it hard for you to pick just one!

Your needs change, projects ebb and flow, and the future is unpredictable. Within our four practice areas you'll find consultants with unique and relevant combinations of experience and expertise to drive optimal organizational performance.

Business Transformation & Innovation Practice

We offer cutting-edge, forward leaning assistance in keeping your business competitive by preparing leaders to innovate rapidly. Executive leadership teams benefit from a series of facilitated discussions, working sessions and retreats, to define and clearly articulate their desired future state and set about achieving it.

Marketing & Customer Experience

We bring you seasoned teams of consultants in five areas critical to your marketplace success. The initiatives you undertake that define your brand, enhance your customers' experience with it, your products, services and employees, and drive the sales of your products or services require the perspective and focus that our diversely talented teams bring.

Professional Staffing Practice

If you’re looking for an experienced sole contributor to immediately add value to your team, or a game-changing subject matter expert to address a complex business problem, our professional staffing team will provide the right talent.

Executive Search Practice

We help you identify mid-to-senior level candidates for director to executive level positions. While the courtship period is longer than when finding talent for interim projects, the relationship required to make the perfect match is the same.

Call us. Our work builds your success.
