One of the most significant
changes in our society today is the way we look at employers and employees. In a
fast changing technological world, today's employer could likely be
tomorrow's employee and vice versa. The class distinctions between owner and
laborer, employer and employee, at least those that were heir to the Industrial Revolution and the robber barons
era, are totally blurred today. Furthermore, gone are the days of simple,
easily understood Master/Servant relationships between employer and employee. That paradigm has
been replaced by one requiring much more finesse and subject to much more
Government regulation and public concern. These days, money still talks but,
not infrequently, other blandishments and other precautions are needed to
attract and retain employees and associates who can manage client relationships
leading to lasting satisfaction with results.
is an acronym for our group*. We are
consultants, not technicians.
This page is intended to be an exposition of our mission statement, not a
representation of our capabilities. It may be used as a general guide as to what
we do and do not do for our clients. Briefly, we help people in managing the
launch of their projects, and, not infrequently, their careers. We
keep ourselves informed as to changes in the attitudes, obligations and benefits
of managers and subordinates, and pass this information along to our clients. We
provide training of employees and employers in the crafting of projects
benefiting both. We advise users as
to what they can, cannot, should, and should not expect to receive from suppliers.
We show how accountability works in both directions. We do different things in a few
chosen fields, with a very small permanent staff and selected independent
field specialists. These specialists have training and experience in their
fields but do not aim to supplement our clients' own technical knowledge, only
to assist them in the management of such knowledge and of the personnel using
it. Some of our associates' areas of expertise are broadly based,
some are very specific but they are all results oriented.
therefore do not provide technical advice specific to the fields cited. We do
not develop our clients' new products or services but we do help them manage
their deployment. We do
not operate as executive recruiters or as an employment agency but we do look for talent among people of all
ages, all social, academic, professional and economic backgrounds and sometimes
refer such people to our clients, as an incident of our management services. We do not
ignore race or gender but never interpret those differences except positively
and never discriminate except on the basis of talent and the ability to achieve
results with probity.

germane to our areas of expertise. We obviously also use these pages to
advertise our presence and our offerings. You can leave comments or questions

to remove them from public viewing and to keep them private -- which we shall
hours of receipt, but don't hesitate to resend and shake us up a bit, if you
think we're sleeping at the throttle (not!).
Each page is the work of a
single co-worker and bears the stamp of his or her own mentality. We are
united mainly in our desire to do the best possible job for each and every
client at the least possible cost. So,
a page might get several facelifts in a month, then stay dormant for some
time. That does not necessarily mean that he/she's gone on to greener
pastures. It may only mean that one of you, one of his/her clients, has
his/her full attention. Most of our clients don't seem to mind that.
