Every search and competitive intelligence project is unique due to the different challenges facing each client and their target market segment. Therefore, timelines for completing projects can vary widely depending on several variables, including the size and scope of the project, target business group, client's specific financial or reputational standing, depth of candidate pool, and the current state of the business cycle. Regardless of these factors, Bay Street Advisors strictly adheres to the industry's highest standards for delivery to ensure that client expectations are met and every mandate is executed successfully in a timely manner.

At the commencement of every new project, Bay Street Advisors attempts to provide an accurate time estimate for completing the mandate. This estimate typically includes anticipation of worse-case scenarios and establishing contingency plans in the event market conditions change. As a basis for every search, Bay Street Advisors utilizes a comprehensive process that follows several basic steps:
