When I started eMentum in 1999, I knew that I wanted do something special. I had worked for the Big 5 firms and felt restricted by the hierarchy and the overhead of a large consulting firm. I wanted the flexibility to respond quickly and decisively when a client or a project needed action, and I wanted to make a significant contribution toward resolving complex challenges. I feel fortunate that I have had this opportunity with eMentum.
eMentum clients do not define their missions by the short-term need, neither should the solutions to realize them. It is increasingly important to maintain the balance of technology investment with the delivery of services and to assess policy and standards requirements against operational efficiencies. This can only be achieved by understanding our clients’ needs, pain points and goals and then developing appropriate long-term solutions.
I have worked with our team to build a culture focused on collaboration, both within eMentum and with our clients. It is through the sharing of ideas and melding of talent where customer-focused solutions emerge. We focus on people first, then process to help utilize technology as a welcomed solution in an organization.
As a Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB), eMentum is in an excellent position to offer our existing and new clients professional services to help them realize their mission goals. Our current contracting vehicles are poised to be easy-access tools for clients to procure the services that they need from a firm they trust.
