Strategic Consulting

Sometimes the question is not what you need to build, but why you need to build it in the first place. Trellon offers a complete range of consulting and decision support services to help organizations align their web strategy with their organization mission and values.

Before investing in a technology solution, it is worth it to verify your assumptions about a given approach to solving the business challenges that solution is meant to tackle. Often this can be done by asking the right questions and scrutinizing the proposed solution internally. When the challenge of verifying assumptions proves too challenging, or you just need another perspective, Trellon is here to help.

Trellon offers strategic consulting services to our clients to assist with making decisions about your strategic direction. Our services in this area range from simple review of technology plans for feasibility to in-depth interviews with key stakeholders to ensure all viewpoints are present in your planning. Trellon's team of internet strategists and technical experts can work with your organization to define goals, determine key metrics for evaluating success, optimize workflows and perform due diligence on a proposed solution prior to committing to a given path.

While we are an open source firm, Trellon is fully capable of providing an unbiased assessment of your organizational readiness for taking on certain challenges and recommending the right systems and processes for your environment based on time to implement, long term costs and other factors. Our team includes a diverse mix of professionals with backgrounds in politics, communications, banking, healthcare, academics, security and other professional orientations. We are sensitive to the political realities of the organizations we work with, and can act as subject matter experts to resolve conflicts where necessary.
