Marv Meissner on Consulting:

"My consulting philosophy is different from many. My experience has been that many companies discount internal resources in favor of using external consulting services. They literally “turn over the keys” to the consultants who stick around, ad nauseum.

"I believe that consultants should be used when organizations lack the internal resources, as long as the objective is for the consultant to impart the needed skills to the organization and to become unnecessary as soon as practical."

Marv Meissner is available for on site consultation on a daily, weekly or project basis.


If you can't describe what you are doing as a process, you don't know what you're doing.
--W. Edwards Deming (1900 - 1993)

“I highly endorse Marv. At Albany he was an educator in an industrial environment. Always a high level resourse, his personal skills, professional approach, and genuine caring of the individual made Marv a pleasure to work with. When I inherited quality management of one of the company's product lines, an area I had little exposure, I leaned on Marv for both content and application. He was always patient, understanding, professional, and accomodating. My product line still uses the metrics he taught me... . He will be an instant value to your organization both for his technical acumen and the intangibles that seperate good companies from great ones.
