|Executive Consulting Services|
The unplanned loss of a C-level or senior executive presents a daunting challenge to any company, a situation made worse if the organization is left leaderless at a time of transformational change. Under severe time pressure to fill the position, companies sometimes feel pressured to hire or promote hastily, or to transfer prematurely an internal candidate into the role. Either approach typically results in failure.
What is required in these circumstances is an experienced leader with a steady hand – one who can take on a difficult leadership role within a short timeframe, immediately assess the environment, identify the key business issues facing the company, and steer the ship with calm cool-headedness while rallying the troops to get the job done. With our vast network of global resources and our deep transformational consulting experience, Diligent Partners is able to quickly assess such situations, gather appropriate requirements, and bring the right, seasoned individual to such short-term situations.
Diligent Partners’ Executive Consulting Services can also help you through crisis periods by providing a timely, in-depth, straightforward investigation and assessment of your company’s major business problems, and recommending short- and mid-term solutions. When we enter your business at such critical times, we understand time and money are always in short supply. As your business partner, we continually remain sensitive to these realities as we quickly design a solution around your needs. Included in our solution will be cogent recommendations presented logically, and options for implementation of the approved solution.
With our low-overhead costs, our veteran consultants (no ‘school bus’ with young, inexperienced consultants working with a methodology cookbook), and our quick problem solving skills, you avoid the exorbitant fees and expenses often associated with other consulting firms, especially those with pre-existing business relationships with the very vendors they have proposed. Additionally, we don’t create ‘shelf-ware’ that never gets implemented. We help you find ways to cost-effectively execute our interim executive consultant’s recommendations, or to prepare your permanent hire for success when he or she takes the reins. In short, first we stop the bleeding; then, we help get you back on the road to recovery.
