I'm still working with Philippe since we have created talisker consulting in 2006. Philippe has the unique capability to bring incomparable value both for its client (in the short and long term) and for the sustainable growth of the company by setting and running efficient processes and tools and by deploying fantastic facilitation skills. Light speed, accuracy, sharpness mind and speech, hard worker are the words that describe him best.
Philippe achieves several rare qualities for a single man.
He's a charismatic leader, straight and deeply honest.
Philippe is sensitive enough to quickly understand situations, aims and
people roles playing and to propose solutions.
Philippe is interested in all activities where human, technology, business, challenges can be developped.
His will to learn and to share experiences gives him energy to realize so many things in a day, always with pleasure.
I worked with Philippe in 2001 on a same project but a different stream. Philippe proved to be reliable and trustworthy. He always delivered according to expectations and managed efficiently all the interactions needed between his stream and others. He also showed an excellent client relationship at top management level and contributed significantly to the overall project success.
It gives me great satisfaction to recommend Philippe Kalousdian as a management consultant. I had the pleasure of working with him on a major project of rationalization of an application portfolio for a leading French car manufacturer for six months, and got to know him quite well. I found him to be hardworking, diligent, painstaking and an enthusiastic individual. He is considerate of others, always patient and endowed with a real sense of humor. I really think the world of him as he taught me a lot in terms of management and consulting skills, and think he would be a tremendous asset in any mission of IS Strategy and Management.
I worked with Philippe several times during our Gemini Consulting period. Each time Philippe demonstrated both strong consulting skills in terms of delivery and a unique ability to manage client relationship.
When we worked together Philippe was my manager. I learnt a lot with him thanks to his thorough knowledge of Consulting, especially in term of know-how, and consultant tools and methods.
Philippe has besides an excellent vision of the stakes of Information System strategy and management. Thus, he was often sought because he was recognized at Capgemini for his skills on several concepts (Business Case, Balanced Scorecard, ...) and his ability to deliver a project in a complex environment (partnerships, convergent deals, …).
We have the opportunity to work together during several months for an audit of several outsourcing contracts.
This assignment was one of the most complicated interm of relationships and stakes for the company in a context of re-organisation. Philippe is a very porfessional and pragmatic guy with very strong consulting skills, able to manage assignment in difficult environment. You can trust him.
