What are
special projects?

We’re often asked, what makes a special project special? The simplest answer is this: A special project is any project our clients deem to be urgent and important—and getting it done right internally just seems impossible. While there’s really no standard special project size, budget or timeline, one thing is always true—every company has a special project. So if it’s important to our clients, it’s important to us. And we have the robust capabilities to make it shine.
