This week One of the wizards went to meet a prospective client in the company of two businesses who already are clients, and the fact is, this is a fairly significant change in the way that things are done around here, rather than pitching all things wizardy to the client, instead, there was a collective approach where three or four specialists came together to make a proposal to assist the new client make his business more profitable and attract a wider customer base.
In the old days KPMG, Andersen’s or which ever other big practice would pitch and sub out the bits they didn’t want, this is generally why consultants had such a bad name back in the day, even the big boys specialise in something and generally pay lip service to the “non-core activities” The big change in today’s workplace is the move to a JV approach, with people and businesses coming together to offer a collective service. This is very much in keeping with the Wandwaver Way, we don’t claim to know all the answers here, but we hope we know people who do.
In short, no-one should fear change, excepting of course the odd MP or senior middle managers in the dinosaur industries at the heart of the City, for everyone else, change is good, change brings new opportunity and the chance to work with new people. Going through Change? What could be better ?
