We speak your language

Our clients frequently tell us they appreciate our human side. We won’t hesitate to roll up our sleeves and entrench ourselves in your organization. And we won’t talk over you. At Plante Moran, we partner with you to understand your unique issues and provide pragmatic, yet sustainable, solutions to solve increasingly difficult day-to-day challenges and complex issues. We combine this approach with upfront planning and regular communications to avoid any unwanted surprises.

This approach is the cornerstone of our supply chain and operations team. Kim Doyle, supply chain and operations practice leader, explains, “Our team members don’t use ‘consultant speak.’ There are no barriers to connecting with our clients on a practical level, which allows us to quickly identify the root of their problems and develop a solution for a dynamic supply chain that positions them for success.”

Our clients say

As our company was undergoing significant transformation, our team was challenged to manage change and balance work load. We were able to bring Plante Moran in to work side-by-side with us. They operated as part of OUR team and not as outside consultants. I was impressed with the level of engagement and how they were able to learn about our people and processes. This allowed us to make smart decisions regarding how and where to improve - and it created a better level of accountability regarding the desired improvements and outcomes. The PM team also created trust and credibility within the project team, which enhanced their effectiveness. I would strongly recommend Plante Moran and will partner with them in the future.
