Supporting Go/No-Go Investment Decisions with Technical Due Diligence

For venture capitalists and M&A pros who need to make quick go/no-go investment decisions, we offer a streamlined variant of our Technical and Process Review. What makes it a finely honed tool for evaluating investment decisions?


Technical and Process Review

The Power of Combining Qualitative Assessment with Quantitative Analysis

The fact of the matter is, often times you are at loss as to how to improve your software. You know it needs improving because you can identify the symptoms -- perhaps poor business results, late delivery, inadequate quality or low productivity -- but their root cause is not so clear.


Radical Management

Radical Management applies Agile-like principles to the organizational level.


Improve Measured Business Performance with Lean

James Sutton

Using James' approach, your organization will decrease waste by improving value and flow.


Risk Management Oversight

Tim Lister

Get assistance and ongoing support risk management oversight and guidance for your enterprise.


Risk Management Assessment

Tim Lister

By framing the questions explicitly in terms of a worst case; switching perspectives and allowing people to describe the best case; examining blame-free, blameworthy, and partial failures, and employing additional techniques, Tim Lister is able to overcome the hesitation that prevents most people in most companies from articulating many risks they are aware of.


Project Office Development

Our Senior Consultants will work with you to design, build, and implement an independent Project Office that will enable you to consistently collect data, analyze it, and present the results.


Project Chartering
