F: Our productivity has been down for more than six months now.I’m seriously considering pulling in an outside consultant to diagnose the cause of our problematic areas.I think we’d all benefit from an outsider’s perspective. Sometimes we’re just too closed to the problems to see the forest for the trees.
M: I think that’s a good idea. You know I got a golfing buddy that runs a consultant firm. He’s an expert in organizational comunication.He does’t come cheap, but he’s an expert in this field.Maybe he could help get things on track.
F: Do you have his card? What’s in his portfolio? Which firm has he worked for in the past?
M: He’s done staff for Microsoft and Boeing. I think he’s been involved with Siemens’ training evaluations as well. I’ll get you his card, you can give him a call.
