“We used The Skills Connections as our consulting partner during our Gartner Magic Quadrant and Critical Capabilities assessment. They worked with us prior to us receiving the Gartner welcome package until the final report was published. It was an eight-month period of co-working, where we received far more from them than we ever expected.
They pushed us to understand what we do, why we do it, how we do it, and most importantly answer the question ‘so what?’ (from our customers’ perspective). To have that clear allowed us to not only present ourselves to the analysts with a strong vision, but equally to the rest of the market as well.
We would strongly recommend them because they work as if they are a part of the team. At some points during our time together, they had more energy to fight for things in our favor than we had ourselves. And that is priceless.
They gave us the map. Based on their former research experience we were able to get into the analysts’ internal mindset. So not only were we able to provide relevant content during the assessment, but we also understood how to use it for our benefit when interacting with the rest of the market. We now have strong marketing positioning because of the work we did with The Skills Connection."
