Am I going to get value for money?
Yes, and to show we believe in ourselves, apart from the normal daily rates we can also offer pricing options that are based on a set of results that we agree with you at the outset.
What difference will Helix Blue make to my business?
Hard to say without knowing your business in detail, but we would expect to see improvements in productivity, quality, client satisfaction and staff satisfaction. We’d need to talk to you and understand more before setting your expectations, but imagine what 10% productivity increase would do to your bottom line – OK then, what about 20% or 30%? What we won’t do is promise unrealistic improvements.
Is this all going to be theoretical?
No. With many years of practical operational experience in different industries we know that pragmatism is essential, although a little theory in the background doesn’t go amiss.
Am I going to get a standard “off the shelf” fix?
Not with us. Big consultancies need to be consistent in their approach; however, we believe every organisation is different, and although we have a framework that works we can adapt it to your specific needs and circumstances.
Will this be "slash and burn"?
No. We use a holistic approach focusing not just on financials, but also on your staff and clients, removing waste and indeed refreshing your whole business culture. People matter and we never forget that!
Am I going to get locked in?
If you don’t like what we are doing you can get rid of us from one day to the next. However, if we are paid by results we could do the same if we felt you weren’t doing your bit – it’s only fair!
Once you're in, will you push for more work?
Certainly not. We believe you will ask us back to help in different areas because you like what we do. We don’t like selling either.
My industry is different, how can Helix Blue help?
The industry makes little difference; it’s the fresh ideas, creativity and methodologies we bring that are going to help. We just ask you to have an open mind and have courage to try new things.
Helix Blue is an independent consultancy specialising in pragmatic change management - delivering realistic results but also focusing on the people aspects offering consultancy and interim management services.
