Barbelo group for large organizations
Globalization and technology has forced organizations to face new challenges that they might not be equipped to solve immediately. In addition, the rapid speed of doing business does not leave organizations room for error. The Barbelo Group has Consultants with different expertise and experiences who works with many different companies and have worked through new problems in the past with other clients, we can provide a perspective based on what we’ve seen work (or not) in the past. Given this experience, we can bring new and innovative ideas or information on possible challenges to the table that organizations probably would not have been able to see on their own.
Large organization benefit by:
The Staff Augmentation
Organizations often have short to medium-term staffing needs (in the case of government work, this can extend for several years) due to a variety of factors (i.e. recent downsizings, sudden expansion). In instances like this, the Barbelo Group’s consultants serve as temporary, highly skilled employees. We are not full-time employees of the company, so it is often cheaper to use us than hire someone new. Because we switch around companies often, we are used to the fast learning curve, and on-boarding us is easier. In addition, by using consultants, companies do not have to pull their employees away from their actual jobs.
The Fresh Perspective
Organizations often need a fresh set of eyes – you’d be amazed at the amount of value consultants can add based on the most mundane observations and insights. Front-line client employees often miss important information because it can easily fall into daily routines without a critical eye towards measurement, analysis, and improvement.
The Extra Analytical Horsepower
Sometimes the problems organizations need solving are really important, but they do not necessarily have the manpower to focus on them. Organizations still have to focus on their day-to-day operations, after all, and new projects typically require re-prioritizing employees’ core job responsibilities. But hiring new employees to fill these gaps does not always make sense either, seeing as many of these projects are one-offs. Whether it is a cost reduction program requiring a dedicated team of six for a year or even a post-merger integration that requires a team of 100 for a month, clients might struggle to get the teams in place to do this critical work.
The Specialized Skills
Another, and perhaps the most common, reason that organizations hire the Barbelo Group is to gain access to a specialized skill set that might not exist in house. By engaging the Barbelo Group, you get access to a group of professionals that has skills ranging from Lean Six Sigma process design to finance organization structures. These highly specialized people would not only be expensive to hire for, but the organization might not have enough work to keep said employees busy year round. With the Barbelo Group, organizations can bring in that skill set on demand when they need it.
The Training and Skill Set Expansion
We say every consulting project – particularly ones with heavy client interaction – incorporates client training as a major ingredient. The best recommendations are worthless if clients can’t implement and maintain suggested changes. Thus, a large part of what we do is to educate our client employees on necessary knowledge, skills, and mindsets.
The Safe Zone
Sometimes, when organizations are working on a challenging problem or a controversial project, it can be hard for them to make decisions or take the necessary actions without being wrapped up in emotions or politics. Therefore, they bring in consultants such as the Barbelo Group to provide an unbiased eye and do some of the dirty work for them.
If you remember the movie, “Up in the Air,” George Clooney was engaged to go around the country conducting employment terminations on behalf of his clients. Likewise, clients might engage us for major restructurings or controversial projects so that they can ensure they are handled by an external party that is both experienced in and a bit removed from these types of activities. We can also provide the back up and confirmation for a client that is attempting to run with a new idea that might not be well received within an organization, without any risk to our day jobs or career.
As you can see, the Babelo Group really support large organizations in a lot of ways. It is not easy work, but for problem-solvers like us, it is exciting work.
