    Castlerigg Consulting

    Castlerigg is 10 years old today. Thanks to all our past and present clients and our hardworking, loyal, team whose skill, passion and good humour see us through many a challenging exercise! 10 reasons why I believe people use us time and again: 1. We achieve outcomes: We deliver change clients can actually implement, not just reviews and recommendations 2. We are pragmatic: We roll our sleeves up and make things happen 3. We work with your people: We get out there and work with your teams to understand, influence and win trust for the change ahead 4. We are ethical: We don't sell anything you don't need 5. We have proven approaches: We bring systematic, whole system methods which our lovely clients corroborate through references 6. We are perfectly normal, not 'shiny suits': Seriously, that makes a real difference! 7. We have breadth, depth and experience: We have deep experience of public sector change, evident in every team we deploy 8. We have a 100% repeat work rate: People trust us, and ask us back 9. We do our homework: We understand your organisation before we arrive on site 10. We work really hard...because we care. It may not be the most commercial strategy, but after 10 years it seems to work for us! #publicsector #wholesystems #10reasons
