We are often called in by the GM or director of a business to help define and/or refine new business offerings and turn them into realizable activities.
We will often take risks with our customers - tying our financial
success to theirs. This is particularly important when we
are providing strategic advice about what represents a marketable
item - our customers know that we believe what we say because we
take a stake in their success.
Sometimes projects fail because the vision is not clear or because
the leadership cannot gather the appropriate information and disseminate
it. We work with our clients to develop products but also
to make sure communication is working both up and down in the organization.
Board of Directors
We have taken a seat on the board of directors
of some of our clients because of the quality and diversity of
the assistance we provide.
Aside from providing advice, we will also implement the strategies
we propose. This is especially important when a customer
has tried and failed on his own in a particular area and needs
something done quickly. Some of our technical expertise lies
Mathematical Modeling (hold a patent in simulated annealing)
Business Modeling (cost of operations analysis, ROI tools,
Compilers / language translators (makers of VB to C++ translator
among other translators)
Application Conversions (automatic and manual translations)
Software Localization (developed methodology for D&B
for translation into 19 languages)
Performance Tuning (for several clients this has been algorithmic
changes that resulted in orders of magnitude differences)
Web sites (many such clients)
Expert Systems (developed a high-end customer requirements/vendor
capability mapping system)
We have helped companies from the size of Avaya, D&B and
PaineWebber to companies of smaller size bring their products to
market and manage their businesses.
Our business model is a unique offering and the process necessarily
begins by interviewing line-of-business managers to identify their
priorities and pain-points. The first meeting will result
in an assessment that almost always leads interesting insights
into areas for improvement and /or new business possibilities.
