ProjectCorps LLC

PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT

Project Corps LLC logoOften organizations look to consultants within their “industry vertical” to determine the best path forward. ProjectCorps has a different approach. We believe that by only looking for ideas within one industry, great ideas from other industries are left on the drawing board. Many times these ideas from other industries may solve a similar problem, create a new approach within a different industry, or provide the spark of creative imagination to take you not just a step farther, but an entire world ahead. That’s why at ProjectCorps, our consultants must have backgrounds in multiple industries as line managers or executives in addition to prior experience as consultants. We believe, and experience shows, that this breadth and depth helps our clients to create the next “best practice” rather than try to keep up by following their competitor’s best practice from three years ago. We believe that creative problem solving comes when you “Think Beyond the Vertical.”
