BerryDunn, Principal

PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT

Consultant David HouleToday’s colleges and universities face many challenges—and opportunities. I work to help higher education institutions solve complex organizational problems and leverage their strengths. As a Certified Process Professional I work with clients to create and implement sound, workable strategies and develop their organizations, streamline business processes, and plan for more effective use of information technology. Understanding and utilizing the key factors and behaviors that gain buy-in for problem solving, process improvement or implementation. It is possible that even the most detailed plans are never implemented because buy-in from key stakeholders was not achieved. Buy-in makes success possible.
