Lesson Learned the Hard Way

During a Benchmarking World Class Systems seminar, Al Enzweiler used the name of a client’s CFO as an example of a seminar participant who got answers to questions and  sage advice on how;

Contributions could be consistently made to hitting top line targets on Income Statement(s) using Targets System(s)

Productivity gains could be realized using State-of-the-Art Financial System(s) and if required a Consolidation System

and decided to be an initial member of the next client’s Architecture Team.

The next week a seminar participant hired an initial member of a client’s Architecture Team. After learning that lesson the hard way, Al Enzweiler decided it was in his clients’ best interest to stop publishing their names.

Evaluating Consulting Firms Starting Engagements by Completing an Initial Investigation

Deciding to stop publishing the names of Enzweiler’s clients was an easy decision for Al Enzweiler to make.

Consulting firms proposing to start the next client’s engagement with one of the firm’s Senior System Architects, are evaluated by initial member(s) of the next client’s Architecture Team reading the firm’s proposal published on the Internet and deciding it is in their enterprise’s best interest to complete an Initial Investigation in less than an hour and before consulting fees are incurred.
