Behavioral Health Business: Sukumar, what career experiences do you most draw from in your role today as President of DecisivEdge?
Sukumar Narayanan: My entire career has been in consulting and professional services. Professional services businesses, like ours, have found that the most successful companies are the ones that do three things well. They bring together company-wide experience — which may be in the form of frameworks and methodologies — with individual expertise and the culture of working as a team. They work toward a goal rather than individual accomplishments. Firms that are most successful are able to meld those three effectively, to consistently address challenging issues.
