“More importantly, after working with her the first time I knew I could count on her to collaborate with our team and help us drive the initiatives to success. This became extremely important when a project we were doing with someone else fell significantly behind schedule and wasn’t producing what we needed. I reached out to Laura and they jumped right in and got us back on track. I was truly impressed by Laura’s (and her team’s) ability to adeptly navigate our team from issue to resolution during a very challenging period in the organization. Expertise and her focus on ensuring her customers’ success and how she manages customer engagements truly separates her from the pack. I hope to have the opportunity to work with Laura (and her team) again.”  Keith Flippin, Services Marketing Manager – Cisco

Your External Experts from Project Beginning to End

Collaborative consulting means we put our heads together to solve your problems. We’re approachable, transparent and quick to respond. Our depth of experience enables us to rapidly come up to speed. We are known for our project kickoff methodology. We create and communicate an effective project plan, aligned with your goals.

We know everyone has a day job, so we take a sprint approach with task descriptions, responsibilities, and milestones clearly spelled out. We monitor, measure and report on the results of each phase. And, we don’t invoice you until the successful end of each phase.

Often, the toughest parts, and the ultimate success of a project, depend on effective rollout and change management. We bring proven methodologies to speed results in these areas too.

Transferring knowledge, skills and repeatable processes is part of every project, so we don’t leave you dependent on us. Although, many satisfied customers do ask us to come back for new projects.
