  • Software Engineering Management - whether you are starting a team from scratch, or growing a team, I can help. Creating an environment that promotes productivity and that provides proper respect for your talent enhances all aspects of product delivery. Promoting quality through the pursuance of ISO-9000, CMM, etc., is often neglected, but is REQUIRED for your company to be successful.
  • Product Management - Coordinating the business and engineering requirements to ensure the proper product is built and effectively delivered to the marketplace.
  • Business Development - The most exciting products promote relationships with other companies and organizations. Often this means engineering collaboration with the business partners - developers toolkits, API's, and custom development. I have led these sorts of activities at many companies, and including activities in Europe, Africa, and Asia.
  • Business Plan review and preparation - I can help you ensure your business plan is what it needs to be. What, you don't HAVE a business plan ? I can help you with that.
  • A focus on collaboration - video, audio, and data (web) conferencing, with wireless web 2.0 tie-ins.
  • Another specialty is telecom and networking devices marrying custom hardware with embedded software development. Protocol development including custom protocols for unique client / server applications.
