We offer a highly valuable experience for Not-for-Profits and the Government in that we have led the startup and growth of a not-for-profit that conducted millions of dollars of R&D for the Government, and that became the basis for a Government thrust to establish a center of excellence. We offer highly creative and proven approaches to marshaling critical mass when starting with the scarce resources that is typical for a not-for-profit. For the Government, we offer consulting to make contractors more effective, and to improve the management practices and effectiveness of Government research operations.
We use our experience in leading Not-for-Profits to provide leadership coaching; strategic planning; improvement of communications and messaging; business model development; operating process implementation for highly regulated environments and to met the Government FARS; grant and proposal development; and improvement of outreach, funding development, and community relations.
For the Government, we are the leaders you want to coach small and mid-sized contractors to achieve superior performance through outstanding project planning, budgeting, status monitoring, and adherence to the FARS.
