Our clients work smarter, not harder. The right competitive strategy can overcome many tactical mistakes, but no amount of effort can compensate for the wrong strategy.

Our clients have unique needs. We customize our services to meet those needs. We help define problems and generate practical, cost-effective solutions. We believe in sound management practices, not management fads.

Strategy implementation is important to our clients. Our planning process promotes sound decision making and builds team commitment to implementation. The right competitive strategy is useless unless it is executed.

Our clients value long-term partnerships: relationships grounded in trust, honesty and mutual support.

"The strategic planning process Dr. Gooding took us through kept us on track. He wasn't just a facilitator. He was a channeler, a mover - keeping us focused, letting us go and then reeling us back in."
- Eric Schechter,

- Eric Crown,

"Dr. Gooding uses a pragmatic, real world approach to running a strategy session. He puts people at ease and moves the format from start to end successfully."
