How It Works

From initial inquiry through completion of the engagement, our process puts your needs front and center.

1. First we learn about the agency’s requirements and expectations, including project details, specific skill sets and qualities being sought, and length of the engagement.
2. Next we select professionals with the background and skills to meet the specific need and arrange a meeting to ensure a good match.
3. Management Partners has the business infrastructure for contracting, invoicing, insurance and other requirements to take care of those aspects of our relationship with the agency.
4. Throughout the engagement, we manage the relationship through ongoing communication with both the client and the associate.
5. When the work is over, we evaluate the engagement by asking for feedback about our work and our ability to meet the client’s needs.
