About Us

Delta Associates, Inc., is a consulting firm based in Austin, Texas. We work both in the public and private sectors. We have a broad range of skills and abilities and we understand your business. As a consulting firm, we are your second set of hands and your “third ear.” We help you identify issues and solutions and to “see around corners” in critical moments.

Consulting firms are no longer an add-on cost. Organizations in our 21st Century environment recognize they need the right consulting firm for today—from start-up to profitable “going-concern” businesses, to foundations, associations, and other non-profits.

Here are the compelling reasons:

  • Today’s lean organization must maintain a laser focus on core competencies—product, sales, engineering, technology, project management, etc.
  • The CEO and c-suite executives have limited time to deal with the broader issues of alignment and peak performance…yet they know these issues are life and death.
  • Organizations today cannot afford to hire full time employees who flex from issue to issue and that is why problems don’t get fixed and organizations fail.
  • The most cost efficient strategy is to form a relationship with Delta, Inc. which has a broad skillset it brings to organizations and can focus where the organization has opportunities or threats.

Entrepreneurial Social Impact

Delta, Inc. are social entrepreneurs and proud founders of the Dream Come True Foundation. Delta’s core value is individual achievement within a powerful free enterprise system. We believe that individual performance and initiative are the key to personal and organizational success. Because of this conviction Carol Kallendorf, PhD, and Jack Speer conceptualized and founded the Dream Come True Foundation, which identifies high potential people in poverty and leads them into education and high-paying jobs. Our mission is to create peak performance and professional opportunity.
