Our experience spans over 10 industries, multiple product types, and both strategic and tactical roles. We adhere to a methodology honed through all these experiences: Analyze, Align, Act.
Analyze - Gather qualitative and quantitative information on the market, team, product, finances and customers. Create initial plan.
Align - Ensure plan works across functional and organizational boundaries by aligning goals, cultures and plans.
Act - Implement plan with resource efficient methods, using technology and relationships to maximize results and minimize costs.
