Managing Change and Defining Solutions with Proven Methodologies
We are committed to delivering results that are on time, on target, and on budget
Since our inception as a Michigan corporation in 1986, Schumaker & Company has been a management consulting and professional services firm committed to assisting utilities and telecommunications firms, state and local governments, and companies in the manufacturing and service industries. Over the years, we have continually expanded our scope of services to meet the needs of our clients.
Currently, our consultants provide expertise in strategy, management and operations assessments and reviews, business process reengineering, project management, quality assurance, technology implementation, competitive assessments, customer surveys, and more.
We are an employee-owned firm and a certified woman-owned business in Michigan (DBE), Wayne County (Michigan), Pennsylvania, City of Philadelphia, New Jersey, North Carolina (HUB), California, Illinois, and Delaware (WBE/SBF). To better support our national client base, Schumaker & Company maintains offices in four strategic locations across the country.
Schumaker & Company is results-oriented. Our goal is to bring about practical improvement, not propose academic theoretical scenarios. We focus on the implementation of solutions. We have a dual perspective: determining the right solutions (based on objective analysis) and devising a framework to get from here to there – in other words, a way to manage the change.
