Improving Enterprises

Certified Consulting

Traditional consulting companies compete on price, resume, and response time. Unfortunately, none of these factors create sustainable value for our customers. Cheap resources that are not productive will actually increase cost. Many candidates have all of the right technologies and processes listed on their resume, but when it comes down to getting things done with a high level of quality, they fall short of the mark. Organizations that have no measurable way to validate a resume can create expensive, human resource challenges when a company realizes they hired the wrong employee. Similarly, starting a project a few weeks earlier with the wrong personnel can cost a company months of valuable time. Improving’s certified consulting services challenge these traditional staffing values, proposing alternatives which virtually eliminate the associated business risk. As a result, we present our clients with solutions that provide consistency, reliability, and tangible business value.
