What we do
Some firms aspire to be a catch-all consulting empire; we have chosen to focus only on select solutions –
allowing us to develop the most refined results for each unique mission.
Each of our solutions feed off one another, complement one another, and give our clients full picture results.
Within each solution, we choose projects based on unique corporate experience and those which we can unequivocally deliver.
We cut through unnecessary reporting and rid cumbersome processes – freeing our SMEs to deliver on what really matters.
The pursuit of international cooperation remains a high priority in today’s environment. Creating synergy across diverse and dynamic stakeholders, while navigating the fast-paced operating environment of complex foreign policy, is where we shine.
Forge focuses on defining the building blocks of each unique international program, discovering interoperability, and creating sustainability. Whether it’s the development of a cooperative weapon system, or the creation of a humanitarian assistance program - we leverage established connections and build new relationships across stakeholders. We guide the exchange of people, information, and material; maximizing coalition program development and allowing our clients to integrate seamlessly. Our adaptable infrastructure allows us to rapidly integrate abroad, providing a wide array of services that meet client missions.

Digitally enabled programs are faster, more cost efficient, more reliable, and more precise. However, discovering, adapting, and implementing technology in ways that work best for diverse end-users, and complex missions is essential to long-term success. This is where Forge’s Rapid Capabilities Practice comes in. Our Agilists and Technical Professionals apply a holistic approach to deliver on all elements that make technology endeavors successful: methodology, business processes, data, and (most importantly) people.
We are selective in pursuit of partnerships with prudent technology vendors that offer the most rationalized, human-centered routes to modernization. Our agile delivery approach maximizes our clients’ ROI and accelerates change due to our practiced ability to maximize learnings before significant investments are made. Always thinking outwardly in diverging directions pushes us to bring facts and data together, apply logic, and explore many possible paths; ultimately allowing us to arrive at fresh, value-adding, and lasting digital outcomes. We believe effective, high-speed capabilities that meet actual human needs are what every mission deserves.

Ya’ll pulled off about seven consecutive miracles last quarter…and did what many said could not be done.

Each call starts and ends with the GO/FOs mentioning their appreciation for your teamwork and collaboration….and the great reputation of our AOs and portfolio leads. That comes from consistent excellence, your forward-looking policy advice, and commitment to improving the SC [Security Cooperation] community.

From the expedient ordering, quick turn-around with the cargo offer/signature and express mail to Forge Group who was able to get this material in my hands the same day it arrived …simply magic!
