Watson & Crick
No consultancy does more to understand clients or candidates than we do. We absorb a client's culture, assessing its needs, encouraging its ambition. We scour the world for candidates, exploring motivation, delving into character. It is a rigorous, deeply researched process, but also an enjoyable, highly
co-operative one. Recommendations become a matter of giving advice to clients (sometimes quite surprising advice). Not bluntly presenting a short list.
Our board assessments have as much rigour. They are not box-ticking, formulaic exercises. They are thoughtful, personal investigations into how a board functions, how it thinks, and how it can do both better.
Other scientists tried to crack DNA's code, how the puzzling elements unite. But Watson and Crick had two extra working tools: a 3D model to visualise how different elements could bond, and a powerful meeting of minds.
