New Business Support

BallardPMC has experience to assist in a wide variety of projects typically designed to answer a question or solve a problem for a client. Consultation is used because of the expertise, staffing, time investment or focus that a consultant can bring to bear separate from the day to day client needs and staffing. For example, a registrant may need assistance in running a EUP field program. PMP firms in the process of growing through acquisition may need assistance in sorting product and service offerings that make sense for integration into the new emerging larger company. Interest in a new service area such as how to use green chemistry, or how to develop a new perimeter treatment program where product and service offering guidance may be needed.
