Airline skills from A to Z
Bill Kostel: Been There, Done That
Building business cases and financial models
Amber: Bill, what are the different roles ATBD
can bring into play for a client?
Bill: Well actually I think that ATBD is fairly
unique in the aviation consulting groups. Because you have some
groups that have a lot of subject matter experts and than other
groups who have armies of MBA's that can go ahead and analyze
But ATBD goes ahead and manages to bring these two together. We do
have subject matter experts in the area of flight ops and engineering
and maintenance and ground operations and inventory, and
I can go on and on.
But you also have individuals like myself that can go ahead and take
the experience that these folks can provide and via financial modeling
go ahead and answer the customer's question whether it be an opportunity
or problem that needs to be addressed and be able to hang a dollar value
on that. And that's really what ATBD could do, is provide a very wide
range of expertise to answer the customer's problem.
