Expert Advisory Council
Bring in a cross-functional team of technical experts and industry executives at board or executive sessions to broaden your evaluation of emerging market shifts. We offer a scaleable, cost-efficient way to incorporate non-core technical expertise and industry perspectives into strategic discussions.

Client Engagement Framework

The Advisory Council is our primary engagement model for companies and public institutions. Clients benefit from being able to work with some of the biggest thinkers in critically important fields without having to incur the cost of full-time hires in non-core disciplines. We engage with clients on an advisory basis, typically meeting in comprehensive sessions monthly or quarterly. Our best fit are long-term partnerships with clients who are strategically aligned to our areas of focus.

Technical Experts

Grayline brings together leading researchers from premier universities, national laboratories, and other scientific institutions. Pure research-oriented technical talent is not generally available within companies and can complement leaders with a detailed and non-biased view of technology evolutions.

Industry Executives

Engagement teams typically feature an inside/outside model. Industry insiders help contextualize ideas and ground the team’s thinking in the strategic realities of an industry. Executives from other industries bring diverse perspectives and lessons learned from other market shifts.

Change Agents

Significant market change often necessitates strategic adjustments that have far-reaching organizational impact. Grayline’s change management experts are typically prior executives with specific training in leadership and organizational design that support our clients’ strategy implementation programs.
