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.
