Five Core Principles
- Do No Harm
This principle is related to "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"
and "if it is enhancing your productivity, don't replace it." Too
often, consultants recommend every upgrade and newest everything without regard
to that recommendation's ROI (return on investment). We will always have the
most current information and knowledge possible but will only bring such information
to a recommendation if we can clearly justify its need in your setting or
- Penny Wise
The most expensive solution is sometimes the best solution -- long term. Hardware
that costs ten percent more but has a MTBF (mean time before failure) fifty
percent greater may provide significant savings when amortized over five years.
Relying on companies and products with a proven track record of performance
and service is a sound operating principle.
- Loss Is Expensive
In the world of computers, it is called backup. In the world of management,
it is called risk assessment. Planning for and anticipating possible loss
can minimize its impact and reduce the costs. We stress long range planning
in everything we do.
- Have Integrity
We will always present recommendations in which we truly believe. Johnson
Resources does not take commissions nor participates in sales promotions that
are not beneficial to our clients. We are compensated for our time, research
and experience only.
- Listen Well and Be Brave
Your know your situation and experience best. We pledge to hear your goals
and expectations and to clarify them early and often. We will then be equally
direct and clear with what our research and experience convinces us is best
for arriving at those goals and expectations -- even if those recommendations
are difficult or challenging.
