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.
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.
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.
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.
