Agency x Allure = Efficacy²
Agency arrives with each Krater Consulting project. Outside eyes bring a fresh view to the challenge at hand. Freedom from the daily challenges you face allows for candor and objectivity that can sometimes get obscured for a variety of reasons. Some are quite obvious, others less so.
Regardless, successful consultancies leverage the time-bound nature of projects to optimize creativity, decision-making, and implementation in a manner that can prove difficult within the confines of set organizational cultures.
Allure gets plenty of recognition in the marketing world, where it is both fundamental and essential. Years of administrative responsibility, both within marketing and across broader administrative scopes of focus, have proven to me that allure is a fundamental component for success in all spheres. The necessity to set the hook successfully extends beyond just selling products and services.
Efficacy occurs when the results you’ve defined are met both on time and within budget. Efficacy² occurs when the results achieved exceed your expectations. I approach every project aiming to deliver Efficacy².
