Our team’s approach leverages skills and expertise from across the Janes organization. Janes senior consultants are experts at combining internal expertise, the knowledge and experience from a network of external experts, and rigorous open-source collection and analysis methodologies to help our defense, security, intelligence and commercial customers anticipate and respond to strategic challenges and make critical decisions.
