Our Values

Every business stands for something, or

To quote Les Brown    “If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.”

Every business is a reflection of the values of the people in the business, so we decided to set our standards for our behaviours and actions.

No one can give a guarantee and perception is subjective  but we do believe that this framework on how we want to work will make it easier for you to do business with us.

Today more than ever transparency, integrity, professionalism and competency matter.  We all understand the importance of commercially confidential information but it is important that for example we disclose any actual or perceived conflict of interest to our clients….. In many ways we are like company doctors and so just like a doctor patient relationship, we aim to set the code of conduct in good business.

We want our relationships to be warm, friendly, open, creative and fun.  Strong relationships allow frank discussions of problems and you can only deal with problems if discuss them. We want to be able to share problems and risks so that there are no surprises.

We value trust and loyalty with-in our teams, partners and customers.

Being part of a shared eco-system means we are all connected.

We believe that if you have high expectations, people will live up to them.  These expectations are mutual with our partners, clients and suppliers.

We think that life long learning, adaptability and innovation are the key to long term growth and success.

As part of these values we have set out the different ways we work and the way we bill/charge.

Our Revenue Model

1.  Retainer
These are typically 6-12 month assignments where we coach and assist clients in helping them formulate strategy, or provide executive coaching to the senior leadership team.  The duration and frequency can from weekly, forthnightly or monthly and can be between half a day and 1 day review sessions.  In addition we may run workshops ranging from 1-4 days to initiate a change programme or to formulate a company wide implementation and action plan.

2.  Projects
This is usual a complete piece of work and deliverable.  It may relate to a new activity or a change activity.  Projects can vary in duration from 2 weeks to several years.  Tem size can be small or large depending on the size and scale of the work required. Methodology may require formal project methodologies, or can work on a more flexible, open and agile development approach depending on the creativity, business challenge, degree of unknowns and risks involved.  We can work either in a lead role as the project manager or as part of a team.  Pricing can be fixed price, results based (ie % of revenue or cost saving) or on a day rate basis.

3.  Time and Materials
Where work stream and activities are clearly defined we can work on a time and materials basis where we charge for our time and expenses.

4.  Interim Management
Here we can act as a member of a clients team and work full or part time for durations ranging from 6 weeks to 1 year.

5.  Incubator
To develop new businesses/start ups we can work in a variety of roles ranging from business development, pilot, development, interim management.  So if you have the right idea and you and your team have what it takes, we are happy to work with you.
