What can I evolve for you today?

Services: Roadmaps

I will help you figure out how to get where you want to go.  That includes figuring out where you are now, if you're not sure!  You wind up with a much clearer understanding of the above, a document you can use to "shop around" for someone to do the implementation work, and some guidance to help them do it.  (I may bid on that myself, or I may decline, for various reasons.  If I do, then the roadmap price will be deducted from my bid.)

How Does It Work?

First, you send me some generic information.  I email you back, asking some more questions.  Some of these are generic, and some are follow-ups to what you said.  There may be some more back-and-forth.  This is all to make sure that we make best use of our limited time together.

If we determine that my roadmapping services are a good fit for you, we determine what "size" of roadmap you need (Small aka Microraptor, Medium aka Stegosaurus, Large aka T. Rex, or something customized), and set a date, time, and place (which may be virtual).

When that time comes, you and I, and maybe some additional people, discuss your situation for some length of time (see the table below).  At the end, you may upgrade immediately to the next size, or extend the largest size into multiples, if I am available.

After our discussion, I do some more research (in line with the size) to close up any gaps, and send you a report.  What's in the report varies by the roadmap size, as shown in the comparison table below.
