Expert Advisors

We have a strong client focus and we provide more than just a report or analysis. We strive to give expert advice and support based on our operational expertise, sharing best practices with our customers.

We invest in the development of thought leadership to enhance our reputation in the marketplace, define and extend our brand, and bolster our reputation for innovation. Our goal is to continuously improve our offerings by learning from every engagement, and investing in the continuing development of SAI staff.

Our services span business strategy, innovation, capability-building, operating model, organization and service delivery design and effectiveness, technology strategy and implementation, and strategic change management, all with the singular focus to help clients achieve maximum effectiveness.

We help DoD and Civilian Government clients, non-profit organizations, and commercial businesses:

When you are initiating a program or project

From planning to execution, SAI’s decades of experience ensure that organizational programs and projects are executed successfully. We understand the complexities of program management because we’ve managed dozens of programs and projects successfully, implementing world-class PM principles, practices, methodologies, tools and techniques.

When you are revising processes

SAI’s architects have the experience and toolsets to help you document your business and technology architectures in their entirety and provide your organization the knowledge of how they interact so you can make the right changes and be confident of positive results. SAI helps clients reinvent business processes that exceed client and stakeholder expectations with turn-key technological solutions and lean processes.

When you need to make a business case

Effective Enterprise Architecture allows organizations to quickly understand the impacts of a proposed change, allowing decision-makers to prioritize business cases based on range of objective and subjective factors, including cost, financial return, strategic relevance, resource impacts, and risk.

When you are developing your team

SAI’s instructors provide shoulder-to-shoulder coaching on how to apply Lean Six Sigma, Practical Problem Solving and Leading Change Management in day-to-day activities, developing both managers and employees into effective problem solvers.

When you need to engage stakeholders

A robust communications plan will engage stakeholders at all levels of your organization, conveying a general description of your initiative, relevant history, and legislative or executive requirements and descriptions of the end-state, as well as expected benefits and impacts to the targeted stakeholders.

SAI was awarded this contract as an 8(a) set aside and they faced the formidable task of transferring all materiel from the original contract holder to the new facility – the original contract was in Virginia Beach, VA, and the new facility is in Fredericksburg, VA. In addition to inventorying all of the medical materiel, the SAI team immediately started preparing materiel for shipment to all applicable Marine Corps Operational Forces. The Government is executing the first option year for SAI and looks forward to continuing the relationship with SAI.
