Chris Dawson and his consulting team helped me successfully identify and develop the organizational capabilities that the company needed during a critical transition time. He and his colleagues at Dawson Consulting Group provided an invaluable service and I'd recommend them to anyone who is serious about building organizational capabilities that provide sustainable competitive advantage.

Dawson Consulting Group was invaluable in coaching our senior executives through a difficult culture change. They have a collection of tools, method and expertise that allowed to customize in several global geographies, but saved us the time of reinventing best practices that they had readily available.

Without Dawson's help around designing and orchestrating our strategy process, I can safely say we would not be where we are today. He has helped us put in place the infrastructure capabilities that we needed to grow from $20mm to $100mm in just three short years.
