Our Work Process.


To best assist we need a full picture of who you are. Our relationships always begin with learning everything about you and what makes your idea or organization tick. From there, we can best understand the challenges and how to reach the goal.


Once we know you, it’s time for you to learn what At Scale brings to the table. Taking your individual goals and challenges, we build a proposal that outlines objectives, staffing, elements, timelines and budgets. From there, we take your feedback to build the most individualized and unique approach to getting the job done.


After the planning phase comes implementation. We turn outlines into action and we do it quickly. From once we are signed to the closing day of the project, At Scale will utilize its operational and program expertise to nimbly execute the finalized plan while tracking goals and metrics accordingly.


Sometimes the first solution isn’t the best fit and we know that better than anyone. At Scale’s ability to adapt and change with the modification of resources, turf, timelines or any other obstacle is unmatched. If the initial execution isn’t up to our standards, we evaluate and augment accordingly and swiftly.
