Services

I offer various consulting services, depending on what you need.

First, let's chat. We can then jointly decide on what's the right action to take. You might need something that's not identified on this page. That's fine. This page only contains my packaged services. I'm a lot more flexible than this.

I arranged this page in alphabetical order.

Agile Transformation and Support

You think an agile approach will work for your department, business line, or your entire organization. And, you realize a framework-in-a-box isn't going to work for you. Let's talk.

I can help you design and deliver an agile transformation in an agile way. We will likely start with managers because an agile transformation requires a cultural change.

I take an agile approach to an agile transformation. Take a look at the Agile Transformation page for more details.

If you're already working with someone else and you want more options, I can act as your trusted advisor. (You're in charge of your agile transformation.)

Assessments

Consider an assessment if you want to know:

  • How ready you are for an agile transformation. I can help you see what it might take and how to start.
  • What causes your product development issues.  For example, you can't get the speed, quality, or feature set you want but you're not sure why. You might even know why, but you can't see how to get from where you are to where you want to be.
  • How to get the project portfolio under control. You've tried and nothing works.

Assessments offer both a qualitative and quantitative snapshot of your reality.  Assessments help you see where you are now, and what it would take to achieve new results.

I have performed process assessments for an entire product development process, project assessments for a particular project, and functional assessments to see how a particular functional group is proceeding.

Take a look at the assessment page for the details.

Clients have raved about my actionable reports. They also found the facilitation of action steps or problem-selection eased their transition to new ways of thinking and more importantly, working.

Books

I've written several books. Please see that page for the current list. (More are coming.) I offer workshops based on all the books.

Coaching for Leaders, Managers,  and Teams

Sometimes, you just need to talk to someone, another experienced manager who's encountered similar problems. I can structure a coaching engagement to answer your questions, and help you see how to be most effective.

Maybe you'd like to know what to measure to get the results you want. I can help with that, too. See the Coaching page for more possibilities.

Facilitation

I facilitate several kinds of working meetings:

  • Strategy exploration and decisions
  • Project portfolio exploration and decisions

In addition, I facilitate both structured meetings and informal communications.

Speaking engagements

If you're not ready for an entire workshop, I can customize parts of the workshops as a speaking engagement for you. I provide dynamic keynotes and presentations in addition to the workshops. I customize these speaking engagements for your organization.

Workshops

See the Workshop list for the current list of workshops. I offer interactive and experiential workshops for teams, leaders, and managers in the organization.

Participants have raved about the experiential nature of my workshops. Managers have raved about the changes people have made back at work post-workshop.

I can add some mentoring or more formal consulting to make sure the workshop content sticks. See the Coaching page for more possibilities.

Trusted Advisor

Would you like to talk with me on a regular basis, but not as structured as a coaching engagement? We can create an agreement where I support you, your management team, or your leadership team. See my Trusted Advisor page for some possibilities. Let's talk.
