Common Queries and Questions

  • What does ACS consulting do? +

    ACS partners with you to provide consultancy expertise in 360 degree HR operations, organizational development, business analytics, and manufacturing operations support that drive performance.
  • What industries do you specialize in? +

    We take pride in our ability to learn the fundamentals of virtually any industry or technology quickly. Some of the markets we have served include oil and gas, healthcare, government, manufacturing, and private equity firm start-ups. Having said that, we believe that the value we bring to the table is not industry expertise -- which you already possess in abundance -- but rather an understanding of the value of TIME and driving performance to improve your business and close GAPS.
  • Why should we hire a consultant? +

    You could easily spend time creating interventions and conducting a needs analysis, designing and implementing a program. This is time you should probably be spending building your team, product, distribution channels, and customer base. In addition, to our expertise in these interventions and conducting needs analysis, designing and implementing programs, we offer independent, third-party insights into your business, and may raise questions that you might not have thought to ask. Lastly, the challenges our clients face are often ambiguous and require change that can be difficult to manage. Although solving those challenges is not always easy, ACS relish the opportunity to go beyond the obvious answers to find the best solution within given constraints.
  • Will you agree with everything I say? +

    Only if you're always right. One of our jobs is to help you avoid mistakes. We'll challenge your ideas and assumptions so that you'll be ready for the internal and external changing environment.
  • How do you price your service? +

    In general, we charge a pre-determined fixed fee. The fee is determined by: The scope of the project, in terms of the tasks and documents you require help with. The sophistication and specific needs of your target audience. The quality of your existing materials and or software platforms For instance, if you have a recent, staffing need and already have a quality in house applicant tracking system, our effort can be significantly reduced. The clarity of your vision for your business goals, objectives, expected outcome, etc. Your availability and willingness to participate in the preparation and advancement of the project. The complexity of your industry and business model. The availability of industry information. The desired timing relative to our workload. In general, "rush" jobs will carry a substantial premium over projects that can be completed as our schedule permits. Because of these factors, the fees for a typical project, can range from a few thousand dollars to several tens of thousands of dollars. By the way, if you are "price shopping," you should know that price doesn't tell the whole story. After all, if money wasn’t an object what would you do to drive your business forward. You can always earn more money, but you cannot produce more TIME! - there are many dimensions you need to consider. However, we can work with every business size!
  • Will you sign a non-disclosure agreement? +

    Gladly. We prefer to use a Mutual NDA so that our own trade secrets can be protected as well.
