  • How big is the potential prize from supply chain business transformation? How can we maximise it?
  • How can we ensure that the approach we choose really works, is implementable by our own people, and we can see signs of success early enough?
  • How can we assure the success of our business transformation effort without jeopardising our business-as-usual activity? How do I know we will get a report that is implementable?
  • Big consulting companies come promising big savings. Once the contracts are signed – promised savings never show up. In the end, sometimes, costs even go up. What can we do differently to get better results?
  • Why do big brand strategy consultants act as if they have mysterious powers and capabilities, when we already know what they are all about?
  • If our internal staff cannot do it all by themselves, and big consultants are going to get us sub-optimal results that look good only on paper, then what is the answer?
  • With big consulting firms, there is frequent drama with a lot of activity with junior consultants /fresh graduates. It appears like a lot of wastage of resources. Why are we paying such hefty rates, while we train recent graduates recruited by big-name consulting companies?

In this website you will find answers to these and many of your other questions.
