Deliberate Practice Workshops

As organizations grown, they inevitably outgrow their existing processes for hiring, building products, triaging incoming bugs, training sales teams, etc. Finding the time and expertise to fix these is always a challenge.
Using experience gleaned from years of working at startups, we work with your team to define, document, and train these refinements to process. Depending on your company's needs, we can drive these refinements, or simply serve as an extra pair of hands, so you can stay focused on the other needs of your growing business.
