I have designed economic development technical assistance programs from basic approach down to the most excruciating level of detail. My modular, flexible Enterprise Improvement methodology has been applied several times to formerly ad-hoc approaches to firm-level development and has resulted in manifold productivity and performance improvements. I take a systems approach to project design that heavily emphasizes cause-and-effect and behavior change. Although I am process oriented, there are never cookie-cutter solutions and each engagement brings its own unique design and ends in unique solutions. Each project design is tempered with realism and bounded by its budgetary constraints.
