What Differentiates Us

When companies compare consulting firms they typically look at attributes like the area of expertise, size of the company, office locations and perhaps review a set of candidate resumes. While this information may be relevant, it does not necessarily improve your odds of selecting a superior consulting firm.

The focus instead should be placed on understanding a firm’s internal practices and processes around attracting, retaining and advancing talent so that you can be assured you will receive value regardless of the individuals assigned to your project.

Adaptive is not in the business of selling people, we are in the business of selling experience and knowledge. We deliver that knowledge through a trusted and value-based partnership that we build with our clients.

Besides having depth of experience, strong client advisory skills and proven methodologies, we feel the following three areas are our greatest differentiators:

Our People

We have an entrepreneurial model that attracts highly motivated resources who share a passion in our chosen areas of focus. Our consultants do not work for us, they work with us. This creates a diverse, collaborative and inclusive atmosphere that values the input of everyone in the firm and ultimately leads to higher quality deliverables and an unmatched client service experience. When you are working with Adaptive consultants you are working with consultants who have your best interests at heart and care as much about adding value to your company as you do.

Our Approach

Just as no two clients are alike, at Adaptive, no two project approaches are the same. We customize our approach based on the specific needs of the client and the project. In some cases we adopt a hybrid approach that incorporates aspects from the client’s preferred internal methodology. In other cases we adopt accelerated methods to meet aggressive deadlines without compromising quality. Either way, we customize the methodology that is right for you.

Adaptive’s people are unique in that we seek consultants that have a combination of capabilities and relevance in the market. The majority of our consultants have:

  • industry and functional experience
  • technical knowledge across a variety of technologies
  • process skills
  • project management experience

This additional insight makes them an invaluable resource and extends the value they provide to our clients. From our most junior resource to our firm’s partners, Adaptive’s resources are highly relevant in the market.

Core Values

At Adaptive, we believe it is not just the skilled resources and methodologies that set us apart from our competitors but rather, it is our culture and the way we interact with our clients that makes the difference.

  • We bring client value in everything we do
  • We have integrity and inspire trust by taking responsibility, acting ethically and encouraging open and honest dialog
  • We are trustworthy and keep the best interests of our clients, our company and our co-workers in mind
  • We behave in an inclusive manner, valuing diversity and client interaction as a mechanism to improve the quality of our work
  • We work as a team and hold one another accountable for high-quality performance.
