Typical consultancy versus the TINO consultancy
We usually contract consultants when we know how to solve a certain problem, but lack the time to do so, or in those situations where solving a given problem requires an ad-hoc, one-time effort, and makes such external solution faster and less costly. HUMINT Solutions provides you with solutions that dramatically enhance your problem-solving capabilities considerably faster, minimizing the need for such external, ad-hoc solutions.
Beyond saving you time and reducing costs, keep the problem solving processes in-house will minimize leaks of strategies, business plans, expertise, or any other valuable information that may become vulnerable when outsourcing.
All good consultancies aim to provide their clients with three main types of expertise:
- Unique know-how – gained by employing consultants with experience in different areas
- External benchmarks – gained by extracting existing benchmarks or initiating targeted interviews when a new benchmark is needed
- Internal knowledge – gained by interviewing your staff
TINO consultancy provides three similar scopes, but a thoroughly different approach. While the conceptual mindset of a typical consultancy revolves around what they know, our view is that you know best, even if you are sometimes unaware of it.
We find that it is possible to identify problems, discover their solutions, and implement them, using considerably fewer resources and without the risk of exposing valuable expertise and knowledge to outsiders.
After using our 8WH Matrix© for developing your strategy, business questions, and other crucial components (see my previous posts), TINO experts will provide the required answers by extracting them from their TIKOs (ii) networks.
Finally, another profound advantage is that TINO is not limited to identifying and structuring the solution - TINO is part of the solution itself! The small internal TINO team supports both the implementation and the monitoring and control which follow it.
The following chart provides a comparative analysis of our unique approach.
