Mission of the AHC Group
About the Firm
Since 1981, the AHC Group has been active in assisting organizations and individuals in the field of environmental and management strategy. As management consultants, we serve as trusted advisors to middle and upper management staff in organizations whose responsibilities include environmental health and safety, public relations, governmental affairs, corporate governance, social responsibility, communications, and investor relations. (Read a more complete history of our firm here.)
We focus on helping companies realize the business potential in environmental strategy and public issues, enhance stakeholder and investor relations, improve corporate governance and position themselves in the marketplace.
As researchers, the AHC Group strives to discover what is actionable by linking the needs of corporate business strategy with external demands for new products and environmental leadership. This includes research reflected in the seven books written by Bruce Piasecki, including Corporate Environmental Strategy: The Avalanche of Change Since Bhopal (John Wiley, 1995); Environmental Management & Business Strategy: Leadership skills for the 21st Century (John Wiley, 1999), and World Inc (Sourcebooks, 2007).
Dr. Piasecki's most recent book, The Surprising Solution: Creating Possibility in a Swift and Severe World, to be published in November 2009, is an updated edition of World Inc that addresses the dramatic shifts and changes in the global economy in the last two years.

How we differ from other consultants
The AHC Group is a small, versatile firm that acts quickly. Our goal is to produce rapid results through the employment of our experienced Senior Associates. Where a larger consulting firm sometimes places each client in a prefabricated mold, the AHC Group prides itself on listening to each client before counseling. Low overhead means that we can do more effective work. No debt means we deliver with speed, honesty, accuracy, and force.
