Presenting the Consultant’s Forum, September 16th 5:40 P.M. Share, Learn, Grow
Consultants: The Good. The Bad. The Ugly.
The CEO's dilemma:A CEO needs a consultant when a specific issue emerges that neither he nor his management team knows how to address. But how can a CEO determine whether a consultant will serve his needs and actually address the issue?
Making the matter worse, the world is littered with people professing to be "consultants,” but who have no clue about what they were doing – the ones who borrow the client's watch, then tell him what time it is.
How do you choose?
