Utility and Energy
Introducing any change successfully requires experience in understanding how to effectively integrate the “old” with the “new.” Nimble Consulting has successfully partnered with clients in various industries experiencing significant change – whether driven by new strategy, new leaders, new markets or innovative ideas, shifting customer demands, the economy or regulatory factors. Our projects typically last 1-2 years. Here are a few of the clients we have worked with.
