Who We Work With: Testimonials

  • Large-scale change is never easy

    When I first became CIO of the newly merged MeadWestvaco, I knew that integrating two ERP teams and two decentralized IT organizations was going to be a significant change challenge. And, that we would need to integrate the organizations and change the culture in less than 2 years to meet our goals. Tandem Group partners were my mentors through this change effort. Quickly helping me to establish the right context for the change and the culture we needed to build, they worked to make sure that I and my leadership teams were the ones leading the development of the environment and integrating our culture, our behaviors, our metrics, and our strategies into every action we took. Large-scale change is never easy. But it can be successful. We were. And we all became better leaders and business managers as a result of their work with us. I would recommend Tandem Group to anyone who is looking to undertake an "adaptive" change. Their expertise and their empathy, together with a solid grasp of what it takes to run a business, make them ideal advisors and partners in such an effort.

  • Highly customized service with high impact

    When compared to "the big consulting firms"—Tandem Group provides more highly customized service at a more affordable cost. Because of their diverse experience, they are able to provide multiple services. For example, while working on a transformation plan, they were also providing counsel and coaching to the senior leader. That combination is unique and very impactful.
