The firm of ‘now’ – 5 things about the way you do the things you do**

Following on from recent posts, to give some insight to what we believe a ‘firm of the future now' looks like, 5 examples from our business that we have abandoned as compared to a traditional model are as follows:
  1. Guaranteed fixed pricing – the definition of a competent service provider is someone who can devise a scope of work and provide an upfront fixed price that they are willing to refund in full if the customer is not satisfied with the performance.
  2. ROWE – if you do not know what this is for, Google it or click here and join the movement.
  3.  Solution choreographed teams – we work with whomever and on whatever terms are best to achieve the client’s objectives.
  4. AAR – again, if you do not know what it is, Google it or click here, and embed it into your business today.
  5. Diversity of thought – when two people in business are constantly of the same opinion, one or more is irrelevant. It raises diversity in every sense of the word and arbitrary politically correct percentages become irrelevant.
** For the trainspotters, ‘The way you do the things you do’ is a song by the Temptations from 1965, The version I first heard was by Hall & Oates.
