The Pace Harmon Difference
Pace Harmon’s practitioners average over 12 years of professional experience, with the majority of our team members holding advanced degrees (e.g., MBA, PhD, JD, MSc).
Our practitioners bring a wealth of experience from a variety of backgrounds: from consulting in Big 4 and other global consulting firms to industry knowledge from previous roles as VP, CIO, COO, CFO and General Counsel with suppliers and customers. Our firm has sourced several billion dollars of services, covering virtually every type of technology and large scale business transformation initiative.

We work on site with our clients and use proven tools and methodologies to ensure that each transaction rapidly achieves maximum value. Our programs start with the a definition of the client’s desired end state and we “reverse engineer” to design the project and define contract deliverables that will best enable that particular client’s journey. The expertise and broad experience of our practitioners allows us to consider a wide range of potential solutions, and we do not assume that an immediate transaction is the solution to each client’s situation. We utilize a comprehensive, yet flexible methodology to help clients arrive at optimum decisions and results, and each of our projects leverage a robust set of project expediting tools and templates to make the project as rapid, cost-effective and painless as possible.
We have developed numerous proprietary products and tools (including benchmarks, stakeholder alignment tools, RFx templates, requirement databases, and proposal evaluation tools) to enable our teams to efficiently and effectively manage through the entire lifecycle of large-scale, complex transactions. These products have been designed based on the real-world experiences of our consultants, embedding operational best practices across the entire sourcing lifecycle. Our products expedite the procurement process that spans quantifying savings, identifying requirements, developing an RFP/RFQ, aligning objectives and understanding of the deal, and negotiating a flexible contract that will meet the business’ needs over the long term.
