Consulting Services

Consulting and advisory services help organizations build their capacity to discover and strengthen the links between transformative leadership, employee commitment, customer loyalty and stakeholder value.

Consulting services within Butler Corporate and Executive Education is both a separate category of services and a fundamental capacity of our firm. All of our work with clients is based on an integrated inquiry and consultation model, the goal of which is to transfer our capability to our clients, thus helping them learn to learn, and to consult themselves. As a distinct service category, however, there are several things worth noting about the purpose, value offerings, and delivery vehicles of BCEE consulting. 

BCEE Consulting is dedicated to developing inquiry systems that bridge academic and business communities.  We source subject matter experts who have built an impressive record of helping business leaders capitalize on challenges to their fundamental business models, devise analytic approaches to assessing and redesigning business processes and systems, redefine their competitive distinction, and reinvent their business concept. Our objectives are: (1) to help clients build their capacity to develop systems for inquiry, learning, and innovation, (2) to continually enhance our own knowledge generation capacity, and (3) to disseminate this knowledge through teaching, advising, web publishing and other forms of exchange with the professional business community. 

If information is the currency of our digital age, then knowledge is the coin of the realm. Nowhere is this truer than in today's workplace. Everywhere employees turn, they are inundated with data. As the amount of information swells, management and employees may find themselves drowning in it.

BCEE consulting services help clients turn this information overload into useful knowledge so they can anticipate and address pivotal events affecting their business. Also, we help our clients develop systems to share knowledge, since existing knowledge is the most important input to the production of new knowledge.  

Planning for the unpredictable may seem an impossible irony, but many firms appear to recognize that in a period of turbulence, an organization's ability to flex and respond is critical for sustaining growth. BCEE's consulting services help client organizations use their knowledge and skills to increase their leadership resilience and agility - their capacity to proactively leverage the experience of change to promote growth. In so doing, our clients are increasingly able to optimize the value contribution made by their employees and other stakeholders.
