Stephen J. Mellor, Author and Speaker

I offer consulting primarily in kick-start form.

This means that we will discuss your needs and establish together what it would be helpful for you to know. Then we put together a package for management and engineers, offered remotely (in the discovery phase) and on-site (for delivery.)

I also offer long-term consulting on-site.

Please contact me for more details. If we can't help you, I'll put you in touch with an expert.
