An Outsider’s Perspective

McKinsey & Company, the world renowned management consulting firm completed a study of CEOs with outstanding track records; those CEOs whose companies returned more than 500% over their tenure.  Of 600 CEOs studied, 5% met their criteria.  Of the top 5%, CEOs were twice as likely to have been hired from outside the company. The main reasons cited were an outsider’s ability to challenge the company’s culture with greater objectivity.  An outsider’s view will generally yield the unbiased insights needed for breakthrough moves.  Because of our knowledge in all aspects of sales, operations and finance, our focus on small to medium sized business, our experience worldwide and our macro view of markets worldwide, The Schatten Group provides you with that “Outsider’s Perspective”.
