Explanation of the scope of services
The intended role of GDI Solutions is to connect the three networks of contacts
through market knowledge and experience to suggest good solutions for
participating executives. GDI Solutions is not intended to become another
service provider who is performing one or more aspects of project support in
competition with existing well-qualified services. The idea is to
introduce appropriate services efficiently.
GDI Solutions introduces
well-qualified contacts in a manner perhaps analogous to the concept of
developing a list of "preferred providers" among many specialists within the
medical field as qualified professionals who have agreed in advance to
participate. Our work is done as a shared service to many participants,
without acting directly as the agent or representative of any single service or
location, and without assuming liability for the performance of whatever
services the two parties may agree to be appropriate after they are introduced.
As another simple analogy, directory assistance can help a telephone caller
to quickly find and reach the desired contact anywhere, but doesn't take
responsibility for the outcome of such calls. There is, however, more
knowledge and judgment required to suggest appropriate business connections.
That is our business.
- Custom or shared
Sometimes, "off the shelf" knowledge, contacts, or
research within the scope of the free services (funded by shared work
among the other participants) will not be sufficient to meet the unique
needs of a particular executive. Executives at more than one
company may also be found to share common research interests. GDI
Solutions can be of assistance in both scenarios through :
- Custom research work on behalf of participating
- Shared research work on behalf of multiple
