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, expertise needed, and timelines.
2. Next we discuss the specific project needs with the agency and our lead consultant who will serve in the project management role.
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 maintain ongoing communication with both the client and our team.
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.
