I knew that tough Problem would bring a pragmatic approach to designing, documenting and implementing our requirements, and that they would be capable of completing this intensive piece of work within the prescribed deadlines... They compiled a response that was both comprehensive & addressed The Rock’s requirements, but they also positioned it to meet the future needs of our organisation. Overall, they delivered a great “fit for purpose” outcome for The Rock.Stuart McDonaldFmr CEO , The Rock
Tough Problem was engaged by the C&K Association Limited’s Board to undertake a strategic and operational review following the resignation of the former CEO. After working with the Tough Problem team, the leadership team gained a better understanding of the business and the service to our key stakeholders. The guidance and assistance they gave us in developing focused initiatives to improve our total organisation was invaluable. Tough Problem was able to provide key insight on parts of the business that surprised a number of our long standing employees! They are a master of turning complexity in simplicity. With the help of Tough Problem we were able to improve our overall service to the front line staff, our head office accountability to each other and generate the largest surplus in C&K history. It was a great team to have around in our time of need.Mel ComerfordActing CEO C&K Association Limited
