We have a cadre of 25 consultants who partner with us, and we can pull in the skills that we need on an ad hoc basis, keeping your costs down and maintaining flexibility in what we can do and how quickly we can provide support for you. Our consultants have at least a bachelor’s degree and industry certification or master’s or doctorate degrees. They are part of their own consulting firms and work for us as independent contractors – they are available through us for both long- and short-term engagements. You contract through us, and we manage them for you and don’t add to your administrative burden. We have smooth transitions between engagements and, if needed, during engagements.
