We have some consulting time available! We are primarily a consulting / training /
mentoring / content development group. We took a bit of a hiatus to build Church
Radius (church management software) but it has launched so we're available again.
Our primary focus is Microsoft technologies including .NET, SQL Server, and related
technologies. The past 2+ years we have done a lot of ASP.NET-based software-as-a-service
(SaaS) work but our experience and skill set is certainly broader than that.
We have a few services available:
Consulting and Contract Development
Software development is not quite as easy as falling off a bike. We can help get it
done right and on time. We can provide various levels of service from high-level guidance
on architecture and design right down to pumping out the code.
Mentoring and Training
If you are more of a we-do-it-all-in-house type of development shop, that's great.
We can help keep your development utility belt up-to-date with customized training
and mentoring. We have a great mentoring program called On Tap - read more at http://www.ardentdev.com/OnTap/.
New Offering: Process
Improvement / Project Governance / Crisis Intervention
Ron Smith, a PMI-certified project manager with experience in crisis project intervention,
is now offering help to companies with struggling projects or looking to optimize
their process. Here's a breakdown of what Ron's doing:
Why is it that a horror story project gets so out of control before management knows
about it? Projects gone bad are expensive to fix and they destroy morale, causing
high staff turnover and re-training costs. And then there's the damage to your company's
reputation in the eyes of the customer. Well-run projects have clear escalation paths
and good communication up and down the ladder. If that doesn't sound like your company
or project, keep reading.
Ron has helped dozens of troubled projects for companies of all sizes. He can help
your team make simplified plans to tackle complex situations and start dealing with
issues one at a time. A finely tuned team can overcome drastic changes in scope or
direction and overcome hurdles without breaking stride. And team members will be happier
because the project no longer appears unmanageable.
Ron has run Root Cause Analysis and Problem Resolution for Fortune 500 companies.
He has helped turn around projects with demoralized teams facing million dollar penalties.
If you find yourself constantly in firefighting mode and going from one tornado project
to the next, call Ron.
We'd love to help out with your projects. Give me a shout at 1-877-672-3487 (ext.
