KTA and Lough Barnes Consulting Group Joining Forces to Serve You Better

KTA and the Lough Barnes Consulting Group are pleased to announce that we are combining our skills and experience to better serve our consulting clients. Our two firms share the same commitment to provide high-quality management consulting services and to positive changes in the public sector. Together we are building a new type of open collaborative organization rooted in the values of excellence, sincerity and co-creation. Adopting the philosophy of a social enterprise, we have created a social investment fund that will allow us to partner with other committed organizations to address intractable issues that are not being addressed in other ways.

KTA is a consulting and public interest research organization founded in 1999 that provides advisory, facilitation and negotiations services for our clients and advances new policy thinking and ideas through collaborative processes that bring out innovation in politics, policy and governance. KTA has served a vast array of clients, including many key federal government central agencies and departments, provincial and territorial governments, hospitals, major national and regional associations and not-for-profit organizations. “I am excited by the opportunity to apply our past experience in new and innovative ways”, said Jay Kaufman President of KTA.
