David W. Jones, Inc.
Consulting In Detail
Fact-Based Planning and Adaptive Execution of Critical Initiatives
Consulting In Detail is the company name for the consulting services of David W. Jones. David provides planning and execution leadership for technical projects that are critically important to non-technical customers and end-users.
David's work ensures that each project plan is aligned with actual facts on the ground and each implementation team can adapt the plan with responsive agility as conditions change.
A good plan articulates where we are going and why. It helps us to set goals consistent with the market environment, the strategic objective, operational and financial realities, and our internal capabilities.
Although we apply commonly accepted methods and tools to manage each project, we know from experience that every good plan is obsolete in some way by the time execution begins. A responsive execution team will adapt with continuous agility as the organization gains more experience and/or external conditions change.
Consulting In Detail is now located in Southern Vermont and is focused primarily on initiatives to provide high-speed broadband to our rural area. We also provide continuing support to previous clients.
