This means working not so much with the developers as their leadership (not to be confused with management), to determine what tools, techniques, processes, etc. would be most effective (within a reasonable budget). Of course I may also need to confer with the developers to see what they already know, object to, etc. This service comes in three sizes:
One or two people from your development team's leadership and I talk remotely for up to one hour on one call (phone, Skype, Google Hangouts, whatever). During this call, I make suggestions tailored to your situation. This is priced at $998 (there should be no expenses), and does not include a report. You may upgrade to Triceratops immediately, if I am available.
Up to five people from your development team and (mainly) its leadership and I talk, either remotely or at your office, during a single span of up to four hours on one day. During this, I make suggestions tailored to your situation. Afterward, I write up a report and email it to you. This is priced at $2,998, plus expenses. You may upgrade to Apatosaurus immediately, if I am available.
Up to ten people from your development team and its leadership and I talk, either remotely or at your office, plus I observe (possibly remotely) the various types of meetings and other such process overhead you have, and look at your various tooling (source control repositories, issue trackers, communication methods, etc.). All this happens during a single span of up to eight hours on each of multiple consecutive days. Afterward, I write up a report and email it to you. This is priced at $4,998 per day, plus expenses.
Note that by "development team", I mean not just people who write code (though those are the ones who would most benefit from my advice), but also other "creatives" such as designers and copywriters, and additional stakeholders such as QA analysts, "product owners", and so on.
