The question “What’s best for the client?” is at the heart of every Warren Whitney engagement. With that in mind, we determine whether we can bring the right level of expertise to the engagement and, importantly, whether we think we can develop a partnership with the owner, the management team, and the Board. The most effective consulting engagements are born out of expertise and relationships, always putting our clients at the center of our decision making.
At Warren Whitney, there are three types of consulting roles: fractional leadership, project-based consulting, and advisory consulting. Here is how each option works.
Fractional/Interim Leadership – Our senior professionals consistently serve on your leadership team on an interim or ongoing basis. They take a hands-on operating role, responsible for leading part of your organization – which they fulfill in fewer than five days per week.
They guide in making challenging decisions and bring hands-on management talent. They become your trusted advisor, lead through change, and offer unbiased advice. This is an efficient and cost-effective model when you do not have the expertise in-house and don’t need a full-time position.
Project-based Consulting – Our professionals offer their expert advice to evaluate and solve a particular problem in the areas we serve; Finance and Accounting, Human Resources, and Technology. The final deliverable is their recommendation on how to proceed. We pride ourselves on being available to oversee the execution and implementation of the plan.
Advisory Consulting – Sometimes, leaders just need someone to call who can help them think through an issue or understand a process. Our team provides advice in the areas they serve, helping organizations solve a problem and provide a solution.
