    What are the various fee structures that I should be familiar with during exploratory discussions with a consultant?
    Usually fee structures will be discussed in the context of the specific engagement. Some change agents may choose to publish fees, or a range of fees, on the directory.

    How do I contact the expert?
    Once you have chosen a potential expert for your organization, click the Contact button below his/her name on the profile page. You will be asked to fill in your name, organization, and contact information. The directory will then send them a private message with your contact information.
