S4C  is a boutique management consulting firm that specializes in provoking world-class thinking that leads to unprecedented improvements in results — both in private and public sector organizations.  In order to effect the kinds of results that matter, we usually uses strategy as an entry point.

Although the firm is very small, we do not count solely on our own resources.  Instead, we assemble world-class teams that are customized to the needs of each client or city engagement. Our strategic partners including fellow consulting firms, leading corporations, academics, technologists, think tanks and others to bring the most relevant tools to bear on the challenges facing our clients. We focus on complimenting the skills and experience already found within our clients’ teams, to generate new strategies, approaches, technological tools, projects, directions and ultimately, extraordinary results.

Whether the project requires new sales results for a business, or greater sustainability outcomes for a city — reorganization of a company structure to add efficiency and flexibility, or inventing ways to do more with greatly reduced staff within local government — our ad hoc teams are expert and able to bridge the gap between the current challenge and the ultimate goal envisioned as a success.  How those goals are accomplished is almost always a surprise — and being open to that process of invention is fundamental to our success.

We are different from ordinary consultants in several ways:

  • We catalyze your thinking. We don’t sell our thinking.
  • We work with our clients to create and  fulfill on strategy, including participating in the complex and long-term work of strategy execution and culture change.
  • We bridge the worlds of business, technology and government (when applicable) — and do so by collaborating with experts across disciplines.
  • We provide extraordinary coaching — utilizing principles that have generated breakthroughs across industries, missions and commitments.

Amie Works with Leaders Who Want Breakthrough Results

Unlike many consulting professionals though, we have humility and know that we can’t do everything.  If we can’t help we will do our best to refer you to another outstanding professional.
