What Makes Paladin Different?
We differ from traditional consulting firms in many important ways: the seniority and expertise of our staff, the way we work, the way we think, the solutions we find, economy of time and cost, and most importantly, the results we deliver.
|Category||Paladin Associates, Inc.||Traditional Large Consultants|
|Staffing||Experienced C-level executives||A few senior Partners, and many junior workers with little experience|
|Experience||Most consulting executives have over 30 years of GE and F500 C-level Operating Management experience||Partners have consulting experience, and may have some operational expertise, but most workers have little practical experience|
|Who does the work||Detail-oriented consultants are hands-on at client sites and complete the entire engagement||Junior workers provide on-site support and are leveraged to support a "Partner Pyramid"|
|Solutions||Customized, prioritized, practical, and affordable solutions that deliver significant results||Often canned, preconceived and generalized consulting is a prelude to software sales or large implementation projects|
|Cost Structure||Low overhead ... Virtual organization||High overhead ... Prestigious offices, salaried staff, IT support, "Partner Pyramid"|
|Billing||Affordable. Driven by fast results Success fees where practical||High … Driven by billable hours, augmented by product sales and project management fees|
