Endorsements for Doctor Duncan and Duncan Worldwide

Duncan Worldwide has earned our trust. Because they have proved themselves to be so competent and so helpful in so many ways, they’ve been invited to assist us in a wide range of our challenges. Black & Veatch is well respected around the world, and Duncan Worldwide has helped us identify and focus on our highest leverage leadership and management issues so we can get even better. They’ve helped us clarify our mission, vision and values. They’ve helped dozens of our senior people who are already working very hard work even smarter. That gives us a competitive edge.

A lot of people in this town [Washington, D.C.] have impressive credentials, and Dr. Rodger Dean Duncan is one man whose performance actually matches his great reputation.

Duncan Worldwide’s approach to that sticky thing called ‘organizational culture’ is the clearest and most helpful we have seen.
