Philosophy

   

Formed in 1986, The Duff Group has coached and trained thousands of executives, managers, and employees at the bayonet level. The only real antidote to outsourcing is up-skilling. The old "show up and shut up" can no longer compete with the wage rates of a world market. Employees must be fully engaged and possess up-to-date skills, the creativity to generate new products and services, and the emotional intelligence to deal with customers, both internal and external.

Soon access to capital and technology will be equal around the globe. Commodity based companies will disappear in western society. Only knowledge based enterprises that can tap into latent creativity will survive. Employees are the only sustainable competitive advantage.
