Proven solutions to challenges most local governments face are delivered at a fraction of the cost of a traditional management study

While all of our local government clients are unique, many of the challenges they face are not. Berkshire Advisors Solutions offer structured approaches to addressing a range of issues most local governments face. The cost of providing this assistance is significantly lower than the cost of providing the same analysis as part of a traditional management consulting assignment because consulting processes and the use of analytic tools have been re-engineered. By streamlining the consulting process clients receive the same high quality solutions to their problems, but at a substantially lower price than a traditional management study.
