Introduction: Dr. Peter Drucker, renowned thought leader who shaped much of what we know about leadership and business today, said: “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” What are you doing to create your organization's future? Are you focused on innovation, or maintaining the status quo? What measurable outcomes are you driving toward to achieve marketplace and industry innovation? How are you managing your business to drive toward these outcomes? Does your organization have a 3-5 year strategic plan to frame these outcomes? If not, how will you achieve these outcomes? All innovation starts with strategy. Piecemeal, niche-focus, department-level frameworks fail to see the forest for the trees. Enterprise-level business strategy is a proven must for cohesive, transformational growth. C-level executives must be able to answer the question "WHY is this important?" to drive change, and the WHY is undefinable without strategy. Whether you have your WHY, or need help defining your WHY, I can help. Ping me to get started. My services: Leveraging more than two decades of experience in a multitude of private and public sector industries, I provide boutique business consulting services with a BIG VISION. Focusing relentlessly on helping clients define their WHY via design thinking-style engagements designed to provide outcomes-focused results, I unite my experience, passions, and purpose to help others define theirs. Over the course of my career I have helped countless organizations, including small businesses, Fortune 100 enterprises, state and local governments, and large public sector entities define their "why" via: (*) Strategic planning, execution, and roadmapping (*) Goal-setting and success tracking (*) Business case development/funding requests (*) Business planning/business plan development (*) RFP/RFI/RFx and vendor selection advisement (*) Software needs analysis, review, and selection (*) Website strategy and execution (*) SEO-informed website content development (*) Website development and launch (*) Market research and analysis (*) Survey research and analysis (*) Peer-reviewed/academic publications Pricing: I offer hourly, packaged, and subscription engagements targeted to your specific needs and meeting you where you are in your formulation and growth journey.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer hourly, packaged, and subscription options that cater to your unique needs. My hourly rate is $125 USD. Packaged pricing is based on service provided with tangible outputs (i.e., developing a strategic plan, business plan). Subscription pricing is objective and volume-based. Please reach out for additional detail.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My approach is to meet every customer where they are, define core needs, and deliver top-quality services based on these needs. Focusing on delivering strategy-driven, outcomes-focused services, our engagement will begin with information gathering, initial consultation, identifying immediate and upcoming needs, and prescriptive recommendations based on propelling forward movement. My services frequently involve high levels of collaboration and iterative refinement, so we will schedule frequent touch points to ensure we meet timeline requirements and to prevent idea stagnation.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My professional and academic backgrounds span a wide variety of industries, roles, and capabilities, resulting in a "Swiss Army knife" array of consulting capabilities. My education includes a Master of Business Administration (MBA) with a specialization in Management Information Systems (MIS) and a PhD in Public Policy.
