SSCA maintains a Strategic Network consisting of seasoned professionals in related fields. The Network allows referrals of qualified experts that compliment the targeted focus of professional services offered by SSCA.
This creates grounds which allow us the benefit of referring individuals and firms who own our complete confidence. Requests for competent professionals in various locations are frequently made and periodically we need to augment our staff for a large contract.
In turn, our Strategic Network refers us, without reservation, to their loyal clients for our expertise and specialized training. In each case, we have firsthand experience with the work of these individuals, as their familiarity with our models provide a foundation for seamless client interaction.
SSCA is a “narrow line” firm. That is, we limit our involvement to areas where we have deep expertise and experience. We have formed several strategic partnerships with individuals and organizations whose work complements and even overlaps with ours. They share our passion for a research based approach and we don’t hesitate to refer our clients directly to them when their expertise is called for.
