Management Consulting

+ 100 buzzes
Management consulting is the practice of helping organizations to improve their performance, operating primarily through the analysis of existing organizational problems and the development of plans for improvement. Organizations may draw upon the services of management consultants for a number of reasons, including gaining external (and presumably objective) advice and access to the consultants' specialized expertise.

    Wonderful topic Jim. My best manager ever treated everyone the same -- he asked for their opinion, listened intently, selected a kernel or two from each nugget given to him and dispensed it amply to the rest of the organization with name attached, worked side by side in the trenches when required, fought hard and said no when the circumstances were not right for the team and helped the ordinary team do and become extraordinary. I personally used his standards of honesty, respect, and integrity as the bar that everyone should (still) exceed today. When we get to see the best ever in action, rather than read in a book, it is exhilarating because of its rareness. IMHO. Cheers.

    Canada might be a great place to be a lumberjack - but I couldn't live in society there. It is only a matter of time before I muddle someones preferred pronoun (one of 71 or so) and get arrested as a hate crime for that.

    #8 Victoria, Greater Vancouver and Toronto have insane house prices. However, Canada as you know is a huge country. Much lower house prices in Ottawa (great city), or in the Atlantic Provinces where lived for three decades. And Montreal (where I grew up) is not too bad. The marginal tax rate between $143k and $203k is 29%. If you're earning $46k - 92k, the rate's 20.5%. Canada's corp tax rate has dropped to 26.5% from the all time high of 51% in 1981. So the picture's improved.

    I have both American & Canadian citizenship. The last time I looked at relocating and working in Canada - my tax rate was going to be 42% - and I could not afford to own a house in Victoria. I opted out of the relocate and took a job as a US Contractor instead.

    #6 Ya got it wrong, Brian. Canada is among the lower taxed countries in the world, not far from the U.S. Mortgage interest deduction in the US costs the Treasury some $70 billion in lost revenue each year. That's insane.

    #2 You'll see in my reply to Joyce that I have four adult kids. I do agree with some of your other comments, especially about keeping the elderly an active part of society. In Canada and the U.S., seniors often get warehoused in long-term care homes. A new solution is desperately needed as the numbers of elderly mushroom in the years ahead.

    #3 Having raised four kids (now in their twenties and thirties) during a time of government cutbacks to social programs was a challenge. My wife, Sue, was out of the labour force for 12 or more years so we flew on one income. Today, child care costs are wild, except for the Province of Quebec which heavily subsidizes it.

    Until childcare becomes a part of our system: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@joyce-bowen/women-are-declining-to-breed. Women are smartening up and opting for careers over breeding. Careers opt for the 'bottom line' and have no room for kids. Childcare can consume a paycheck in short order. Close

    • Where do YOU personally stand on the challenges facing society and organizations from an ageing population? - I opted out - I moved to a third world country where the dollar goes further. I am never marrying, never having kids, and I am showing other men how to do the same. No more fodder for the machine. No more livestock for the sausage grinder.

    • Do YOU want to play a role in finding solutions, whether it’s dealing with mushrooming healthcare costs, encouraging the elderly to remain an active part of society or becoming an inter-generational barrier buster? Already doing that. I help youth, small employers, independent contractors and expats get care in overseas markets. http://bit.ly/2rS0mf0 Our solutions could work for America too.

    War. That is always the solution the employ. They will launch a civil war - kill of a grand portion of Gen - X / Gen - Y while baby boomers will be shuffled off to camps - those that can't do camps will be unplugged. And they have been planning it for a good damn long time. Watch Venezuela - it is a rendition Beta Test. Ukraine is already in 2.o mode. The genocide there is clicking in to a steady stream.

    There are many large issues out there; however, we all need to start looking at the world from a survival perspective rather than a profit one. Too much focus is place of "Global Warming or Client Change" and not enough on hard pollution. The rise in global temperature will be solved with the next major eruption of Iceland's Hekla volcano (it is long over-due), which is expected to cause a global DECREASE in temperature of 2C... but nothing in nature can solve the hard waste pollution issue.

    "Out of sight, out of mind" is a very dangerous concept and one that every company should abandon. Make a profit, but don't do it at the expense of life. As you read the story below try to remember that recently two Sperm whales were washed up dead, the stomachs filled with plastic garbage.

    Global success with an entrepreneurship mindset, advanced IT resources, knowledge and resources. Open minded with a natural leadership , i define "success" as the following :

    "When it happens that you succeed, you have against you 1) everyone that wanted to do the same 2 )all the guys that did the exact opposite 3) finally, but not the least, every competitor that did absolutely nothing about the subject matter".

    Therefore some of you would be willing to engage a conversation, right ? but how ?

    I travel worldwide so i use digital work spaces to collaborate, consult and audit.
    To get into authorized conference ask for a Pin number # : (*long distance carrier fees may apply of you don't call from local areas).
