Our Firm


We are particularly concerned with the needs of management who are dealing with today's erratic business climate. We also recognize the immense contribution and increasing importance people play in organizational productivity, quality assurance, and effectiveness.

In developing support systems for several of our clients, we have accumulated a wealth of experience in assisting them in improving their performance and solving their operational problems.

Our basic philosophy is training and development of human resources in order to improve performance. Embodied in this training philosophy is the belief that it is of foremost importance to know the difference between development for the sake of development, and development for the sake of employees as well as organizational growth. In addition, we believe that learning is a process of goal-directed behavioral change. Thus when an individual has learned, s/he achieves a higher level of competence.

We believe that if any organization is to become a viable partner in economic development, the participation in economic development must come from all of our citizens and the communities in which we live.
