Teaming Relationships

We have worked with other professional services firms of all sizes in a variety of integrated team arrangements. We understand the challenges of strategic partnering and the need to bring unique and complementary capabilities to a team so that it in turn can bring superior value to a client—whether it is your client or ours.

Through our ongoing memberships in relevant professional associations, we initiate or participate in teaming relationships when appropriate to organize and integrate needed service capabilities. In addition, we maintain close professional ties and in some cases long-term contractual relationships with organizations and individuals that specialize in one or more of the core business processes where our consulting expertise will clearly add value.

We team with our strategic partners on business development initiatives and on client engagements whenever it makes good sense from both a business and a professional standpoint. Below by way of illustration are brief descriptions of some of our teaming partners:
