“Our strategy session with you provided the framework for discussing where we are in our growth cycle and was the catalyst to make some important changes. We are now focused on the concerns that are appropriate for our given stage, cleaning up leftover issues from earlier stages, and no longer wasting resources on activities that can be appropriately delayed. Based on the results, we will continue working with you on our plan.”

“We were at a strategic crossroads and needed to step up and take a leadership role in transforming our company. KA took us through a comprehensive process that helped us carve a path and plans based on real trending, subject matter expertise and lofty, but clear, expectations for what it will take to be successful. Nearly 3-years later we are successfully working our long-term plan and making a consequential difference in the company and markets we serve. KA’s command of strategic process, focus, facilitation and communication skills made it possible.”
