PatchPlus Consulting’s Business Model Enhances Agility and Responsiveness to the Customer
PatchPlus Consulting, a Service Disabled Veteran-Owned and Woman-Owned Small Business, has been providing intelligence, space and cyber operational expertise to Lockheed Martin since 2009.
PatchPlus Consulting operational experts, made up of all active and reserve duty military veterans, provide subject matter expertise that enables Lockheed Martin to achieve mission success by reducing risk, conserving resources and increasing the potential for transition of emerging technology development efforts
“Our business culture is ‘can do,’” said Catherine Dunham, president of PatchPlus Consulting. “No Lockheed Martin task is too big or too small for us to tackle and always produce at the highest professional standard and quality. Our consultants are consummate professionals with a tremendous work ethic, flexibility for customer needs and passion for what they do.”
PatchPlus Consulting supports Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Labs and Operations Mission Development teams in all stages of emerging technology development efforts – from defining requirements and developing use cases to providing feedback, final testing and solution marketing.
The company takes a teaming approach using a combination of on and off-site work efforts to enable Lockheed Martin to capitalize on the synergies gained from tapping expertise across several relevant disciplines. This team approach enables Lockheed Martin to only pay for support that is needed.
“Our keys to success are love what you do, be the best at what you do and always be responsive to your customer,” Dunham said. “If you love what you do, your passion and commitment will show through. Secondly, there is no replacement for simply being the best and doing your best. Exceeding the standards rather than simply meeting the standards will set you apart from the rest. Finally, be responsive and flexible to your customer needs. Anticipate what they need before they know they even need it.”
