Business Management: A solid background of broad experience in creating innovative, practical solutions in areas of expertise ranging from the raw consulting types of work - as in developing conceptual solutions and implementing functional strategies for answering fundamental business management questions on the one hand, to the practical types of work - such as in designing and producing esoteric, state-of-the-art, sophisticated, capital equipment systems on the other.

Team Leadership: Amongst the many Tools of the Trade that we have used for creating a cohesive team is PERT analysis - ("Project Evaluation and Review Technique"). This method of tracking project activities started with the POLARIS development by the US Navy and has lead to the modern approaches to Critical Path Analysis (CPA) and to useful timeline, cost and resource management software packages such as Microsoft® Project Manager® which we have used extensively along with Lotus Notes®, and Sparta Systems TrackWise®, variously for Team management, issue tracking and resolution as well as for general project and business Information sharing.

Team Communications: Other tools of the trade that we have found to be most helpful in both local and international team and business management are the technologies of today that allow us to connect virtually face-to-face from our respective desks at a moments notice without actually having to waste time and energy making a journey to physically visit with each other. Such tools as Skype® & GoToMeeting® really facilitate very effective collaboration and objective accomplishment without ever leaving the office. Of course, there are many other very effective tools available to support communications, ensuring that essential information can be rapidly and clearly disseminated. For example, we have MS Visio® drawing / planning / charting tools; MS PowerPoint® and Astound® presentation tools. Charts and pictures of many kinds help convey the fundamental story of the project objectives, information and methods to team members and company executives alike - an essential part of effective communication.

  Project Management: We have been using professional grade Project Management as a practical tool for coordinating both very diverse, complex and multi-disciplinary resources in many different work environments in our history; it is a set of skills we have honed over the years in conjunction with hands-on responsibilities in a variety of fields of endeavor in both the international and domestic arena of high technology systems development. A little known fact is that the Project Management methods used today, and promoted so successfully by the Project Management Institute (PMI), originated with the Polaris Missile Systems Development, a joint US/UK Navy project. The complexity of that undertaking was extraordinary immense, requiring the careful management and coordination of time, materials, personnel and funding of international resources and technology across three continents. Consequently, we benefited in gaining the highest level of Project Management skills through working directly with the people who created, knew and used the tools and the subject first hand. Go Back

Product Management: The ongoing needs of management to proactively monitor, and act upon, trends in product sales, production costs, inventory levels and overall profit margins can be understood from our own direct experiences in this area of Profit and Loss responsibility; one example being the time we launched a sophisticated, Sun Microprocessor driven, Unix based, hardware / software integrated, Automatic Test Equipment capital equipment product both nationally and internationally.

Operations Management: For another example of how experience plays into relating to your needs as a client, our past responsibilities in managing production staff comprised of several different unions helped us in understanding the needs one of our clients' had for evaluating their production costs and historical trends, including benefits costs, prior to their salary contract negotiations with their staff representatives.

Systems Integration has been a major aspect of much of our project management experience. We have been responsible for a very wide range of different types of system integration activity raging from integrating major software systems across multiple platforms to integrating hardware and software systems in automation and process control capital equipment systems.

Business Solutions: Some projects call for nothing more than working with the client in the application of basic logical and analytical skills - purely intellectual exercises - as in, for example, creating functional IS tools to help increase profits and reduce operational costs by solving a functional problem such as enabling direct data input into a company IS system from clients' sales order data files using Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) whereas other projects are intensely practical, in-the-trenches work such as in the development of new production plant.

Testimonials & Accomplishments: Many situations call for a combination of team-leadership, analytical skills and planning abilities together with practical first hand experience that comes only from first working for many years in the same real world situations that our clients' face daily. We came into IS/IT and MIS systems consulting only after first developing experience solving our own IS and business development challenges while engaged in a variety of full-time, executive and line-management roles in a broad range of business environment from the entrepreneurial start-ups to fully fledged, multi-national corporations. The value delivered to our clients is evidenced by the many significant accomplishments and very favorable testimonials we have received in the course of serving the needs of many different clients in many different types of business enterprise.
