We analyze systems and strengths to create opportunity
Over the past twenty years, the principals of the Mountain Group have developed common understandings about business and our practice of consulting.
- First, we believe three elements are essential to success in business: an effective strategy, a healthy culture, and sound business practices.
- Second, if a firm is stagnating, or finding it difficult to move forward, rarely is a single problem the cause. Most likely there are systemic issues that need to be tackled.
- Third, in every company, regardless of performance, some elements are working right, that have value, and need to be nurtured and developed.
- Fourth, our role is not just to analyze and assess the company's specific circumstances and need; alongside management, we must develop alternative courses of action, forecast the risks and possibilities for each, facilitate consensus among the stakeholders, and then implement the measures agreed to.
