My premium offering, a highly effective experience based diagnostic service that in a short space of time, based on my many years of experience with such investigations, enables me to accurately diagnose the factors that are giving rise to your problems and prescribe the treatment necessary to remediate sub-optimal situations and turn around failed and failing projects.
See the Pulse Measurement page for more information – answers in as little as one day, generally NOT more than ten days and a no-charge warranty if you are NOT entirely satisfied after the first day of engagement.
Tailored advisory, typically following on from an initial Pulse Measurement. This can take the form of sitting with your CEO, CIO, CFO or other C level executives or with the Executive Committee answering questions and giving guidance, periodic progress review sessions either on-site or remote, ad-hoc consultation by email, phone or Skype, etc.
Remember always that one high value decision quickly and efficiently taken can make a huge difference. I can assist you to make those high value decisions quickly and efficiently, sometimes by being in a meeting for as little as an hour. A series of inputs like this, for example at a monthly management meeting, can help you realign and reposition your IT, ERP or other business information system management or project quickly and efficiently.
3. Executive Briefings, Seminars and In-House Courses
All of these can be delivered in-house.
These briefings and seminars offer you a concise and affordable way to bring your executives and managers up to speed on the REAL Issues and refocus.
Some of the course presentations are available on the website should you want to review the material or take a “teach yourself” session.
I offer a service whereby I will facilitate a project whether a procurement process or a full business information system or ERP implementation
This will also take the form of periodic on-site sessions, off-site sessions and ad-hoc consultation as required in order to help you chart the course of your project and keep it on track.
This is a light touch service and your personnel remain responsible for what they do with the knowledge and experience that I share with them.
