Management Consulting

Strategy and Planning

Strategy and planning at the corporate level are critical for business success, yet many times they are never formalized. Formalizing your strategy and creating the appropriate plan enable you to see more quickly if you are off track and where to take action. They help communicate the company's direction to all employees so everyone is pulling in the same direction. They are essential if you plan to raise investment capital to finance company growth. Having been down this road many times myself, I can be very helpful to management in analyzing and identifying the best business path, and then preparing the appropriate road map to help successfully navigate that path. I've been successful doing this at the corporate level, as well as large and small project levels. Have a look at some of the work I've done.

Marketing, Promotion, and Packaging

Every business must actively sell it goods and services. Marketing, promotion, and packaging that is done well make the job of selling easier. I was indoctrinated to marketing at an early age by my father. I was the only 9-year old in our neighborhood selling greeting cards door-to-door that had a full color 8 1/2 x 11 marketing brochure - thanks to my father. Cost effective corporate collateral and promotion have been a priority ever since. I have a number of creative experts that can be pulled together to help companies design and produce effective collateral material and promotional campaigns. Take a look at some of the samples I've been involved in producing.

Information Technology

If you read my cover letter, you know technology is my passion. Whether it is using spreadsheets to analyze and strategize, or video editing software to produce promotional clips for marketing campaigns, or building corporate networks to enhance worker productivity and internal communication, I love applying technology solutions to meet business needs. And, I love it most when I can provide an effective solution at a fraction of the cost of the most obvious solution, like spending thousands of dollars to implement a web solution, when the 'big guys' are asking you to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars. Or, putting together an accounting solution, supported by automated spreadsheets, for less than one thousand dollars, rather than spending tens of thousands of dollars for a bigger more well known software package. This is a talent I learned working for companies where spending the larger dollars just simply was not an option. When it is an option, knowing there is a low cost option helps one negotiate the best deal for the more expensive alternative. Regardless of your company budget, I can help analyze and identify the needs and requirements, evaluate the various solutions, and plan and monitor the implementation.

Operational

I have worked in many small and flat organizations, where "Jack of All Trades" was a real title. If you have worked in a small organization or have ever started your own business you know first hand what I mean. In the most mundane sense, this means taking out the trash and making copies, but in the real business sense it means finding, negotiating, hiring, and working directly with your accountants and lawyers, hiring and training your employees for all departments, finding and negotiating your office space, office improvements, and move-in, and making sure you have enough of the right kind of telephone lines. All this plus the usual strategic planning, product planning, and general company management that goes with the territory. I've been involved in just about every aspect of operational management. This background enables me to jump into most situations and be productive quickly. If you have tasks or projects that just aren't getting done, I can help.
