For about a year or so I have been thinking of going into the consulting world. For years now a lot of my colleagues have asked me why I wasn’t going down that path. They felt that I had enough experience and knowledge that I can be successful and make lasting improvements to a lot of organizations.
Over the past few weeks I have had a lot to think and prepare for. With the changes in my professional life, I was at a fork in the road and made the call.
See I am very happy when I get to help people solve problems and get them to be successful with what they are doing. I have had a lot of success with previous employers getting to the root of issues and working with a team to resolve it with a long standing solution that ensures the likely hood of it happening again was minimal. Previous CTO and SVP s have called me “Mr. Fix it” for how I have come into a situation, assessed it,and come up with a solution in a short period of time. I was no longer just the “QA Guy” I was leading changes in Development, Product Management, Project Management, SDLC and IT.
So in the past little while Berriault and Associates Consulting Group was formed. It has been a busy week reading, setting things up and getting prepared for what is about to come.
Aside from the new beginning some things will remain the same. I will continue with this blog and participate with my columns on SPaMCast.
Have a good week everyone.
