River Road Consulting works with clients and guides their projects and strategic initiatives with one key principle: listen to the client. As I understand the client's goals, which should include the goals of their end users as well, then it's time to start looking for issues with resources, operating model(s) legacy technology, data acquisition, business process, application quality, and content strategy & governance. Here again it's important to not make an assumption about the source of the problems. Don't assume that it's a design, content, analytics, or technology challenge, it's probably a combination of these.
I believe that at this point it's important to know what the clients sensibilities are, what they appreciate, and what drives their users (B2B, B2E, or B2C) to engage with their platform. Ultimately a good consultant will guide the client to the strategy which will increase the efficacy of their digital systems, businesses and platforms.
