Do you exclusively work in the US?
No. We can work anywhere in the world where it is safe and legal for us to work. We are based both in the US and in Europe.
How do you work with us?
Some company may want us to help their teams to develop a solution. In this case, we may work with the teams for a week, or a month, every day, to understand what is exactly needed, and then work a day a week or whatever cadence is needed with them to help them building the solution.
Other companies want us to do everything off site and bring them a piece of code, or a report for example.
We do not have a pre-defined format. Our goal is to solve your problem and help you. Whatever works for you should work for us. But we do not want to give you a solution that you cannot operate. Hence, if your team needs extra training, we will provide it.
How long is a typical engagement?
It depends on what you need. If we can help you in 5 minutes (which is unlikely if your problem is so hard that it requires us), so be it. If we need 1 year, that is fine too. Our goal is not to fill our bank account, but to solve your problem.
Do you work on site or off site?
We work as needed. If you want us to develop a solution with your team, we may work on site. If you would like us to develop a solution or do some study for you off site, that is fine too. We will do whatever works best for you and maximizes the chance of success.
After I inquire for a project, what is the process for Last Ditch Consulting to agree to do it?
We will need to gather some information to assess how likely we are to succeed. This may take a week to a month. We will ask you to help us to make that assessment by providing us the proper documentation, making some team members available to us, or whatever we mutually agree is needed.
