Hollander Component SearchTM Model: Components and Pricing - Full Set

NOTE 1: For concreteness, the list of available components (with pricing) that follows utilizes nursing in higher education as the chosen academic discipline. This is, by no means, intended to suggest that only nursing search engagements are possible. Virtually any other academic discipline will be considered, although certain component descriptions and pricing would vary according to that choice.

NOTE 2: Actual pricing for an engagement under the Hollander Component SearchTM model depends upon the components selected by the client and to a lesser extent the academic discipline as just noted.

Following is a table that the full set of components from which the client may choose.
