Metis delivers data management and technical assistance services to our clients. We use a variety of methods and technology-based approaches to providing these services. These include onsite consultations, group training sessions, toolkits, data dashboards, videoconferencing, and webinars. We provide our data-focused coaching and consulting services using capacity-building approaches:
- Collaborative. We work with our clients to identify the underlying needs and long-term goals of the engagement.
- Adaptive. We meet people where they are and work incrementally to improve client data capacity and technology infrastructure.
