QTunnel Business Consulting

QTunnel Business Consulting (QT) has learned from experience that providing practice-based leadership and management expertise, combined with pedagogically qualified training of project team members—customized to the specific requirements of the team—provides the maximal return-on-investment for organizations acquiring the service of a consultancy.

     QTunnel Business Consulting provides leadership and management support and training service to clients covering a wide range of topics and concepts, including:

     When being considered as one of the consultancies for a project, QT now recommends in most cases that it provide training in the unique QT leadership and management approach to selected members of the organization rather than "run the project" directly. Empowered by the newly gained knowledge, insight, and confidence, the employees will be well-suited to run the project themselves.

     This QT training, paired with the subsequent project success, will raise the motivation level of employees and thus make them more productive, will raise the organization's skill and qualification baselines, will enable better decision making, and will provide a higher and more realistic rate-of-return (ROI) for the money invested rather than spending consulting fees (exorbitant in case of big name consultancies) for the entire life of the project. And, a significant follow-up effect of all these improvements taken together will be the resulting positive impact on customers. For more information see the page QT Approach and (below on this page) QT Training Service.
