We work with IT organizations that have

Techies who struggle in leadership or client-facing roles


IT organizations frequently struggle when moving technical people into project management, leadership or customer-facing roles. Mismatches occur between job requirements and employee talents, leading to unsatisfactory job performance, late and over-budget projects, and unhappy clients.  The problem can be addressed with our patented process of Job Benchmarking, Matching, and Mentoring.

Job Benchmarking is a process for defining the soft skills required for success in a job.  It is a unique and effective solution because it benchmarks a specific job, and not the person in the job.  We let the job talk through an interactive process and job assessment.

Job Matching assesses the employee's soft skills, and compares them to the needs of the job as defined by Job Benchmarking.  The organization can then determine whether the employee is the right fit for the job, and what training to provide.

Mentoring provides training and support for the specific soft skills that require improvement.

The bottom line is that employees are in the right role, and performing at a high level.  Employees feel valued, retention increases, and hiring costs decline.
