Project Experience:

Project Coordination and Support

For us, project management is about guiding a client through a project or completing a task on a client's behalf. We are often approached by organizations who are restricted because their staff is over capacity, they lack expertise in a certain area, they are stifled by opposition, or they are facing any other obstacle that prevents them from achieving their objectives. JS&A helps to facilitate projects by leveraging our extensive experience in the field, by providing services in a more economical fashion than many organizations can achieve in-house, and by communicating with other entities in a way that may pose as a challenge or conflict of interest for a client to do themselves.
