Leaders of hi-tech companies know their stuff. They have great ideas and the ambition to turn them into reality. But many engineers and scientists haven’t had the training or experience in leadership and management. That’s our sweet spot.
Yes, we too, are engineers, but we’ve also led real hi-tech organizations in the information technology business, in oil production and distribution, and in start-ups. And…we have the academic and research background to bring the latest thinking to leadership and organizational challenges. We’ve also have international experience.
Here are some of the things we’ve done to help hi-tech companies:
As an example, we meet every month with the CEO and CFO of an international biotechnology company to discuss strategy, business results, leadership developments and operational challenges.
