...your trusted CTO


  • What to buy, what to build, how, who and when
  • Developing an IT strategy can be a difficult task (and yes you do probably need a bit of strategy) especially as things change so fast
  • Doing enough to give direction but not too much to constrain is key

Project control and management

  • It feels great when you are in control (really in control) of a project
  • There will usually be twists and turns; that's the nature of software, but 80% of the time or more you should be in charge
  • Agile/Waterfall can be very effective (but not together!)

Development teams

  • Raise the game - take your team to the next league
  • Good software teams are critical to the success of any project
  • We help put teams together and to coach existing teams

Project validation

  • Board level and technical team interpreter, cost, time and effort estimates, risk reduction
  • Do you need an independent review of a software project?
  • Larger and more complex projects run with a higher risk - we can help you to validate and mitigate that risk
  • We can help you review costs and resources, are they accurate and realistic?


  • Working to accredited standards can be very useful
  • ISO9001 = consistency - do you need it?
  • ISO27001 = information security - do you need it?
  • Call for a chat about both or either if you think you might need some standards!


Get back on track, sort out finances, resources, people, technology:

  • Project over-running?
  • Seemingly insurmountable technical issues?
  • Financial issues?
  • Supplier or team issues?

We can help you with all these ...
