Our transformational orientation, reliance on senior-level practitioners and high degree of customization leads us to focus on services where we can make a significant difference. We never reach for engagements that fall outside the boundaries of our experience.

How We Do It

We differentiate our services from others by our orientation, values, focus and capabilities:

  • Collegiality – We understand and respect higher education’s values, consultative process and shared governance
  • Disciplined Integrity – We do not solicit or accept engagements unless we have the people, knowledge and skills to support a successful engagement
  • Practical Orientation – We are former campus executives, administrators and faculty members. Our recommendations are action-oriented and our clients get clear guidance on what to do “Monday morning”
  • Seniority – Each of us has ten years or more of experience.
  • Custom Solutions – The solutions we recommend are custom crafted for each engagement. We use and value qualitative and quantitative methodologies
  • Thought leadership – We are known and respected internationally for our contributions to higher education
  • Global Perspective and Experience – We have served clients throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Australasia
  • Transformational Orientation – We are driven by the desire to help clients make beneficial, noticeable and sustainable changes
