“Hollstadt Consulting is respectful of our time, understands the skills that we require and is very flexible. In many instances we needed a consultant within 2-3 days and they responded with highly qualified candidates.” – IT Business Systems Manager
This major health plan provider offers comprehensive insurance options to individuals, organizations and corporations across Minnesota. In addition, it provides a number of wellness programs designed to promote the health and well-being of all members.
In this thriving healthcare organization, the demand for top-notch business analysts to augment project teams throughout the enterprise was urgent and ongoing. Procuring seasoned consultants with a strong healthcare background, in-depth analytical skills, and a thorough understanding of business analysis methodologies was the responsibility of the client’s Business Systems department. In addition to sourcing contract analysts for the entire organization, the Business Systems group routinely used contract professionals for up to 50 percent of its business analyst positions.
Hollstadt & Associates was engaged to fill a wide array of business analyst openings in projects ranging from back-end mainframe application development to front-end outward facing Web development, and everything in between. The company quickly got up to speed on the client’s business, key initiatives and organizational dynamics. From there, Hollstadt tapped its extensive pool of qualified consultants and vast referral network to identify business analysts with the right blend of technical, business and interpersonal skills the client sought.
The client noticed a significant difference in the caliber of consultants submitted by Hollstadt. “They understood the documentation and the methodology we were using, and could dig in right away. They gave us consultants who could do the job, and we ended up hiring several of them,” said the IT Business Systems Manager.
Hollstadt has provided 19 business analysts to the health plan provider over the past two years, and as a result of their quality service, is now one of its top five suppliers. “When I interact with consultants, I can always tell which are from Hollstadt. It’s a testament to their quality. They provide top-notch people,” concluded the IT Business Systems Manager.
