Consulting

We're tightly focused on four consulting disciplines: strategy, organizational structure, merger strategy and execution, and leadership and succession. Our work with boards and senior management teams at credit unions around the country have us well prepared to add valuable insight and support to credit unions. In addition, the discipline-specific processes we've developed over many years of client service are defined, highly in-depth, and results-driven.

We encourage you to learn about our pre-project discovery effort, and to browse through each of our consulting discipline description pages, accessible below, to learn more about how we specifically assist clients in each discipline - and also to scroll down for a broader look at the processes and connected systems that govern our client relationships and consulting activities.

Discovery

Prior to starting a consulting project we work clients through a thorough a discovery process that allows us to develop a shared and thorough understanding of the client’s complete internal and external environment. Furthermore, the results of our discovery process form a firm foundation supporting each of our consulting disciplines. Learn more about Discovery.
