Imagine saying this to your doctor. Those inside an organization, regardless of their experience, face the persistent and often insurmountable challenge of achieving and maintaining an independent perspective. Moreover, the temptation is always strong to look for convenient, short-term fixes in the hope that patient, longer-term solutions will be unnecessary. For these reasons, we believe our work returns value to clients who approach us precisely because they want us to develop our own point of view on their situation and recommend steps we believe will be effective.
