About Mike Hooks

The Critical Mind

Everywhere people are working towards a common goal. Together, the best results are achieved. Thus the ideal world. Projects sometimes go in the wrong direction and that has a direct influence on the lead time. At such times, Critical Minds can help you straighten things out. How? That is different every time, because all projects and organizations are unique.

Shorten lead time

Everyone needs someone from outside at some point. That helps you and your team. With a fresh look and the motivation to quickly get the project or process back on track. Due to a smart focus on shortening the lead time, projects cost less time and money. And everyone is happy to work together again. Critical Minds always find a solution. Guaranteed.

Projects, processes and collaboration

Critical Minds find their way quickly because they are naturally curious, honest and critical. They are full of energy and immediately roll up their sleeves. From boardroom to workplace. They don’t write thick reports; they share knowledge and their practical experiences. Critical Minds help with projects, processes and collaboration. In other words: they will embark on the adventure together with you.
