Best Practices has become a watered-down term in our industry. I believe it’s the result of subjective interpretation and overuse. Like the idea of timeliness where everyone has their own interpretation of what that means. You’ll have people who are fifteen minutes early and consider that on time. Others are exact timers. Then there are those who are habitually 20 minutes late and consider that on time. The same goes for Best Practices. There are those who strictly deliver an industry accepted or prescribed “most effective” standards. I have found that this style of one size fits all, recycled, and boiler plated to be loaded down with consultant rhetoric that is intended to make the client feel warm and fuzzy, but falls short on delivery.
That type of standardized approach does the client a disservice because it’s not specific enough. Basically, the consulting company is telling the client what they want to hear, instead of pushing their comfort-zone envelope to where real change occurs. The consultants fold under the pressure of “this is how we’ve always done things.” The better way to deliver best practices is to have a consulting company that is consultant centric. One that is all about understands the importance of business consulting, product experience, as well as the aptitude and attitudes of its members. All are critical, but an organization that is comprised of individuals with a steeled commitment to customer satisfaction, the experience level of the individual, and the collective experience of their team, can make all the difference.
