Second expert opinion

To reduce doubt, promote a better understanding, obtain the point of view of a neutral expert and to find the essential arguments for an effective decision, we are offering you a second opinion.

Far from being an approach of distrust or lack of confidence in your internal resources or a lack of respect for external collaborators, the use of a second expert opinion can be very beneficial, for instance:

  • Following a worrying situation, a major incident or a crisis.
  • It can also simply be used to validate certain aspects of a case or an initiative.

This can be done in collaboration with your internal resources or in a strategic mode under the seal of strict confidentiality for senior executives or a specific decision maker.
