Our assessment will cover all of the key components that make up a successful operation. We cover key areas such as staffing, leadership, operations, project management and security practices to ensure you are getting the most from your investment.

Virtual CIO Support

Not everyone can afford, or needs, a full time CIO. You may have a highly functional IT department, but are they providing you with a Strategic Plan that aligns with your Business Strategy, and can they deliver the latest in best practices, technologies and processes that help you to operate with maximum efficiency?

If not, a Virtual CIO engagement might be a good fit.

If you're in the process of looking for a full time CIO, but don't know what to look for, what to ask in interviews, or just need some interim help until the position is filled, we can help you make the best selection to fit your organizational culture and IT maturity.

With extensive leadership experience in a variety of settings, we can provide development for your leadership team, from new leaders to your most seasoned executives. Taking a targeted approach to development, our leadership development services range from multi-day, classroom settings to individual coaching and mentoring sessions with specific, planned outcomes.
