In order to find the solution, you have to understand the problem. The Olde Stone approach is to get the right person to diagnose your root issues, then find the most effective solution to solve your particular problem. Our network of consultants, and the various tools they bring to the table, ensure that you are getting the attention and the expertise required to solve your wicked problems as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
Working With You to Understand Your Issues
A Senior Olde Stone Analyst has many years of experience both working as consultant and as a program/project manager. We don't have a preconceived notion of your problem; we know that we need to listen and observe in order to understand the issues you are dealing with.
We also know how the overall program management system works, and how each part affects the others. When we identify the components that need attention, we bring in subject matter experts to work with your team to both fix the problem and impart the knowledge you need to keep it from coming back. Our goal is not to sell you the maximum number of hours, our goal is to a) help you figure out your problem, and b) work with you so that your team has the capability to avoid or overcome it going forward.
What sets us apart from many firms is that we are not selling a pre-conceived solution and hoping that it addresses your problem. Our consultants are truly world leaders in their field, and we pride ourselves in using our expertise to save you time, save money, and help your team improve their own capabilities.
