The CFAR Team
First and foremost, CFAR’s consultants are curious. We adopt the client’s interests as our own, and are passionate about deeply understanding the client’s organizational culture and context.
Part of this curiosity springs from the diversity of our consultants’ academic training and interests, which ranges from economics to psychology, public health, anthropology, systems engineering, business strategy and communications. Building on an academic heritage that values inquiry and integrity, we ask tough questions using structured, carefully crafted tools, and work hard with our clients to uncover realistic and accurate answers. We test our methods and ideas in real world applications, and invest in continuous research and methodological improvement. We believe deeply in learning, and are committed to equipping our clients with the skills and insights to sustain change and increase organizational adaptability once our work is complete.
They equip leaders and
organizations to go to the next level—not to fix a known problem, but to redefine. They give you a new lexicon, new language and new ways of thinking.”
