Read about the specific interventions I have assisted previous clients with, and the results they have experienced.
My favorite clients usually fall into one of the below categories:
- Individual entrepreneurs who derive significant parts of their incomes on-line.
- Enterprise IT directors and CIOs in mid-sized organizations who are making significant changes in how they utilize IT resources across the business.
- Key stakeholders outside of IT (e.g. CEOs, COOs, CMOs) who are making strategic IT resource investments to generate new business or to re-position the organization competitively.
- Senior technologists in small and mid-sized enterprises who are in the midst of major IT engineering projects.
