Heaven forbid, there was a time when I was involved in Industry in particular manufacturing, if somebody suggested getting a consultant in to help with a particular project, I would be very reluctant to accept and say things like “over my dead body”.
How time and experience provide us with different perspectives, I know through experience that it is almost impossible to be across all issues all the time, the pressures of the daily deliverables often cloud your vision, and for sure do not allow you to focus on the most important, most urgent issue.
My background and experience (upon reflection) allow me to give a second opinion in a non-threatening way, to offer a “Fresh Eyes” point of view and to allow people and businesses get to WGL2 (What Good Looks Like) and unlock value in their supply chains.
Sometimes, people only need a second opinion or some particular advice on a specific issue, I am that person. I am not the person as a consultant that is someone who you call in at the last minute who you pay a bucket load of money to assign blame.
I am someone who can offer a second opinion on a particular issue and can do so in a clear concise non threatening way, who has the benefit of looking at the issue with no pre-conceived conditions.
