What are your benefits ?
- Experts only: We operate a lean and flat structure, in contrast to consulting firms with a pyramid hierarchy of seniors who sell the job and have juniors execute it. At Minds&More every consultant is a seasoned professional who has been there and done that before.
- A pragmatic and participative approach: More than producing slides, consulting is about achieving results and creating lasting change. We always focus on things that matter and involve key stakeholders to make the journey together and to ensure that change can be understood and digested internally.
- From concept to execution: Our combination of consulting and interim services allows us to seamlessly blend the thinking with the doing. Once we have conceptualised and agreed what needs to be done and how, we are very pragmatic in staffing the plan with consultants who coordinate and client resources or possibly interim managers who execute the various tracks.
- Focused on the long-term: Our aim is to partner with our clients to help them realise sustainable, long-term growth. We challenge our clients to make sure projects are meaningful, relevant and impactful. We take pride in the number of customers who return to us for help whenever the need arises.
How does it work ?
- Once you contact us, your request will be handled by one of our Relationship Managers. This person is an expert in marketing, sales or transformation, and will carefully review your request with you to understand the context and particularities of the challenge at hand.
- The Relationship Manager will draft a proposal and put together a team of experts to help out.
- The proposal will be reviewed in a face-to-face meeting to make sure the approach can be fine-tuned and optimised. At this point we also discuss the nature of the collaborations: either we work on a “time & material” basis, with day fee and expenses based on the time tracking of the resources. Alternatively, we can agree on a fixed budget or even result-based fee.
- When accepted, a ‘kick off’ meeting will be planned to inform all related and concerned stakeholders and to set up the various work-streams and teams.
- Throughout the project, a Minds&More Project Manager will oversee the work done by the team (the initial consultants or potentially later interim managers) and the client resources to ensure momentum. At regular intervals, Steering Committee meetings will be held to review where we are versus the plan.
