When not to hire us

This is something we have heard from founders way too often as consultants – “No one knows my business better than I do”.

|

To be honest, we agree.

|

So, why should CXOs even consider hiring us?


Here’s when you should hire a consultant >


1

For tasks that need solving right NOW

|

Consultants arm organizations with superpowers.

|

They jump right in at L1, burn the midnight oil and bring in a great talent pool of just what is needed.

|

In a 100% flexible setup.

|

This buys you critical time to build these skills in-house.


2

For funnel vision

|

Every consultant comes with a wealth of experience – an ETR (Earn That Right) – from 100s of engagements with diverse businesses.

|

The value is from not only the work they have done earlier.

|

It’s also what they have seen work elsewhere.

|

Save a CXO hours of re-do time.


3

For tasks that are just not as important today

|

Every CXO has a limited number of hours.

|

Successful organizations also tend to become tunnel-visioned with all resources pointed to the milestones.

|

But, there are a lot of other things that will become important in say, 2 years, but need effort.

|

Consultants become a no-brainer – flexible, focused, and accountable.


All things said, there are somethings consultants won’t do – which is run your business for you.


For everything else, I think they’re a great bet. We hire quite a few too.
