It all depends on the mission! I believe that with today’s technologies and alternative management approaches, a large part of the work can be done at a distance. In general, depending on the projects, I establish a pre-diagnosis from afar. Then, once the collaboration proposal has been validated by the client, I do a first part of the information gathering (written and oral) which allows me to get a better and clearer understanding of the client’s environment as well as capture certain subtleties that are not necessarily written nor said – 2 days are generally enough to compile the necessary information with some adequate advance preparation. For information, I currently reside in Istanbul, and the majority of my clients are in Europe.
