“One of the advantages to working with people like Bob Sherlock and Chief Outsiders versus other consultants is they are very hands-on in their approach to solving problems. They don't just come in, ask a lot of questions of your employees, compile a bunch of data and walk away. They compile the data, we review the data together, we identify where the opportunities are to improve, and then they stay with us all the way through implementation. That's one of the things that I love the best about working with Bob and Chief Outsiders.”

"Our company, Hatco, engaged Chief Outsiders on a strategic planning project to help us identify key opportunities and threats in our marketplace. Bob Sherlock and Chief Outsiders helped us develop strategies to address key opportunities and threats.
Bob did an excellent job helping us analyze market data, and also interviewed key customers to identify important issues. He guided us through processes that helped us prioritize strategies and build business cases. We were able to develop a three year strategy map for product development and services to help our company successfully grow in the future. Bob was very easy to work with.
