Qwest is a management consulting practice that uses a collaborative approach to business development through:
"The conversation with a client usually starts with a question, like "Can you provide some leadership training for my managers?", or "Will you bring my team up to speed on lean concepts and Six Sigma?" Having been a college professor for over 20 years, people associate my consulting practice with teaching. However, the need for training is often more of a symptom, rather than a cure. Qwest practices collaborative consulting -- before you get a proposal, we are going to take the time to understand what the underlying issue is. Sometimes, training IS the answer -- participants have never been exposed to leadership, Six Sigma or any other management principles before. In other cases, it's a lack of clear expectations and performance measures. The problem might be that the company is successful, but has outgrown current processes... the strategic plan does not create or sustain a competitive advantage... systems lack the data you need... and so on. More often than not, though, training should be one of the last steps in your business development. We want you to have lasting, sustainable results that deliver a return on your investment." -- Linda Brennan, Qwest President
