How to Choose an Executive Advisory Partner

An executive advisory service can be a valuable ally for busy executives as they strive to lead their organizations through today’s volatile business environment. In deciding which executive advisory firm to partner with, consider:

  • Is the advice that the executive advisory firm provides grounded in proven practices backed by empirical data? Is there good reason to trust in the recommendations that you will receive?
  • Does the executive advisory firm provide a strong element of on-demand service, so that you can access valuable insight when you want, at any time that your busy schedule allows?
  • How broad and deep is the executive advisory firm’s expertise? Will the advisory staff of experts be valuable partners for strategic as well as tactical decision-making? Do they have practical, real-world implementation experience?
