The term consulting is thrown around without thinking and generally has very little actual meaning in today’s buzzword filled business landscape. When we say consulting, we mean it. Specific, objective, and actionable advisement based on data and experience — not jargon filled generalities with little to no follow through. Unlike most “consultants”, we hang around through the execution of our recommendations to ensure ironclad accountability.
