“Our CEO was driving significant change and needed us to deliver a different set of capabilities to support his strategic priorities, while also reducing staff. Green Silk consultants helped us to quickly and successfully redesign and put into operation a new communications organization.  They worked hand-in-hand with me and my management team to define new capabilities, processes, and roles and to plan and manage our reorganization. Within six months, we upgraded our talent, reduced expense, and improved efficiency, while also raising the engagement and motivation of our staff.”
