About Us

The measure of a good consultation is advice that is still good, even after you've forgotten who gave it.

Krypton Brothers is a New York based boutique consultancy.

Specialists can sometimes be successful based on a combination of charisma, catchy slogans and impenetrable references. At Krypton, the goal is to be evidence-based. In an emerging discipline within clinical practice, “evidence-based practice involves complex and conscientious decision-making which is based not only on the available evidence but also on patient characteristics, situations, and preferences. It recognizes that care is individualized and ever changing and involves uncertainties and probabilities.” This is an approach that serves many aspects of process engineering as well.

Yet it is relatively rare to find recommendations that include more than a casual reference to a simple survey or two.

Evidence-based Consultation

  • Question first, then advise. Not the reverse.
  • Seek out standards beyond the idiosyncracies of the current enterprise as a means of discovering maximally robust approaches.
  • Partner with internal experts who can communicate concepts in the voice of case studies that are meaningful to others in the organization.
  • If there’s no good available evidence, we’re not afraid to recommend studying the practice competitors, or those in similar industries — anything to avoid self-serving foregone conclusions.

Foreknowledge cannot be gotten from ghosts and spirits, cannot be had by analogy, cannot be found out by calculation. It must be obtained from people, people who know the conditions of the enemy.” THE ART OF WAR
