“Jack of all trades, master of none” is an oft misquoted figure of speech, but the original full length version can apply be found to apply to the world of consulting …
“A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.”
There are many different areas in the consulting realm a business might need assistance in, so we try to recruit and develop consultants who have knowledge in at least two different areas each. For example, a consultant with both business and technology experience can offer a far wider variety of solutions to a problem than a specialist in just one area.
Our Consulting Team have decades of practical management experience to share, ranging from people management (recruitment, management and mentoring), to operational business change, and many other areas.
Every member of our Consulting Division has either a degree in a Business or related discipline, combined with at least a year of practical management experience, or at least ten years practical management experience, under their belt. The members of our Senior Consulting team extends these qualifications to include at least ten years practical management experience, and a post-graduate qualification in management (or related discipline).
The team have adopted the British and European standard BS EN 16114:2011 for best practice, and offer services in the following areas:

Many organisations embrace continuous improvement in their processes and ways of working, but technology and systems can be left behind.
Through the use of our technological knowledge, we can help you take a step back and reassess how your existing technology is used in your business … does it empower it, or is it even holding you back?
