Service Description

I work in 4 critical areas to help organizations: Accountability, Planning & Review, Management System Utilization, and Business & Leadership Skills.

Work in these areas can include:

- Development of Financial Analysis and Tracking tools.
- Development of Performance Analysis and Tracking Tools
- Development of Business, Strategic, and Operating Plans

- Consulting, Coaching, and Facilitation to improve the execution of Plans.

Client work can involve one or all of these areas. Each engagement is customized to fit your needs, large or small.

Some Examples of my past work include:
