Brainstorming Session

Got a Software Development issue you just can’t seem to solve? Having issues designing, deploying, or maintaining your code? Want to streamline your process? Struggling to implement the latest software engineering tools and best practices? Maybe you just want a second set of eyes to look at your code or to bounce your design ideas off of? Maybe you are just looking to set yourself or your team up to earn some technical interest. If any of these statements resonate with you, then our Brainstorming Session is for you.

Whatever software development issues you are facing, we can help. Our brainstorming session is designed to uncover the root of your problem not just treat the symptoms. At the end together we will have clearly identified the root cause and developed a set of concrete action steps that you and your team can take to move you in the right direction to help solve the root cause. We will also schedule a series of follow-up calls to help you stay on track and resolve any issues you run into or questions you may have.

We focus on determining the root cause and remedying it, not treating the symptoms. We don’t put bandaids on gaping wounds. If you come to us with a house of cards and ask for advice as to what type of roof to put on it, we’re going to tell you to build a foundation first. While our advice might not be what you expect to hear it will be what you need to make real progress.

The Brainstorming session is designed to be a stand-alone thing and all the action items we develop will all be things you can do on your own. However, don’t be surprised if we suggest additional coaching. Why? While you can start from zero and teach yourself all about complicated things like Unit Testing, Continuous Integration, or even more basic things like simple dependency management, it takes time and you will stub your toes a lot along the way. Hiring an experienced coach like us will help you to see progress faster and avoid a lot of the toe stubbing.

What do I get?

  • 2 Preparation Phone Calls. Each call is an hour long. The first call is for me to get to know you and your company. The second is to dive into the symptoms you are seeing and identify the underlying problem. Then we identify all the stakeholders involved.
  • Half Day Brainstorming Session. We get all the stakeholders into a room to discuss the underlying problem and brainstorm on possible solutions. I will guide the discussion and provide input, but ultimately the goal is for the stakeholders to come up with an action plan themselves. It needs to be their idea so they have some ownership.
  • Clear Action Plan. The result of the brainstorming session is a clear action plan with metrics, dates, and owners. These will help you to move towards the end goal of resolving the underlying problem.
  • 2 Followup Phone Calls. These are each 1 hour long. It’s a chance for you to ask any lingering questions or resolve any issues you run into implementing the action plan.

How much does it cost?

Our Brainstorming Session costs $1200 plus travel (if desired). If you are within a 1 hour drive of Golden, we can do it onsite for no additional travel charge or you can come to our location.
