Jacaranda consultancy services are designed to help you turn your international business plans into effective human operations. We start by working with you to identify specific objectives for your company's international future. It may be to help to analyse the key cultural issues in an upcoming merger or to create options for post-merger integration. Or it may be to help solve a specific culture problem e.g. a dysfunctional project group team. Whatever the need, Jacaranda consultants will work with you to understand the issues and to recommend a cost effective solution ranging from group training programmes to individual coaching.
