Service Description

My forte is new, unstructured, disorganized situations and problems. Just tell me the outcome you want and any resource or other constraints; I will handle everything else.

I do strategic, mission-critical staff work, which might include:
• Strategy / big-picture thinking
• Planning
• Organization / process improvement / system implementation
• Analysis / data interpretation / research
• Project management
• Writing / blogging
• Public speaking / training / teaching
• Coaching / mentoring

I am a high-value, high-impact resource. You can find people who work much more cheaply, but they cannot handle the unstructured problems, perform the deep analysis, and deliver articulate findings that I can, and do.
