Our main purpose here discussion not just Solution
We are here with you hands in hands to facilitate your learning and do not appreciate the idea of copying or replicating solutions.
To summarize the important points according to a traditional consulting model approach, we can say that senior management identified some problems in some parts of the organization and hired an expert consultant for the diagnosis of the situation, identify the causes of problems and then prescribe the effective solution to overcome the problems that prevail. This description clearly concludes that the company has used the "doctor-patient model" as a traditional consulting model.
