Rethinking technology change.

(because it’s never just a technology change.)

Opportunities to engage

According to Gallup Business Review, the US economy loses $50-150 billion per year on failed technology projects. The statistics overwhelmingly show a qualified Project Manager is a vital component to successful technology change. Most small business and non-profits do not employ full-time Project Managers, the cost is often too high.

We are here to change that! At 10th Avenue, you now have access to a proven Project Manager that can fit your schedule and budget.

Our Project Manager has successfully led technology, international, marketing and multi-million-dollar projects with 5 to 5,000 stakeholders. In addition, we have experience managing projects for the non-profit sector including, fundraising systems, events and technology.

Technology change often appears to originate from a lack of functionality. Organizations rush to implement solutions with high hopes of efficiency gains, new business intelligence and strong adoption rates—yet often they experience the opposite.

We are partnering with organizational leaders who have seen first-hand the challenge, stress and failure of past technology projects. These leaders are looking for an advocate and coach with change management experience to help them navigate the operational and cultural change that comes with new technology.

Remembering technology is just a tool to meet an underlying business objective, we help guide your team through the process of identifying the technical and non-technical aspects of your needs. That’s what makes 10th Avenue different—we want you and your leaders to be the heroes of your project.

Salesforce is the leading CRM solution for business of all sizes. With Salesforce, non-profits, small businesses and Fortune 500 companies have access to the same enterprise-level technology at an affordable price.

We work with organizations to implement, enhance and maintain Salesforce so you can maximize your investment in the platform. Studies show most organizations do not use their CRM to its full potential; many times all that is needed is a professional to unlock this potential.

As with everything we do—we look beyond the technology task and help ensure you are using Salesforce to increase efficiency and simplify operations. Whether you need an implementation partner, Salesforce Administrator, or an expert to support your existing team with projects, we can provide the right solution.

In 2001, Gallup developed a tool with Donald Clifton called StrengthsFinder. Today millions of people world-wide have used StrengthsFinders 2.0 as a tool to uncover their talents. Not only are people discovering their own strengths, but organizations are beginning to use the tool to assess and develop their organization’s strengths.

A one-time assessment rarely offers a lasting benefit. We use StrengthFinders 2.0 and the Strengths Based Leadership to coach and teach your leadership team concepts that can be used daily. We are not interested in a quick two-day organization psychology lesson–we want help develop a plan for lasting change.

Tom Rath says in Strengths Based Leadership, “Employees who do not work in strengths areas are only 9% engaged in their jobs vs. 74% engagement levels for people who do work in their strength. Further, engagement has been proven to substantially increase productivity for the company.”

We have seen this to be true first-hand. StrengthsFinder is not another personality test—it’s a tool that can unlock the potential for higher engagement and improved organizational culture.

The last thing you need is just another rogue technology company or business consultant with grand ideas adding to the chaos of your complex world. This is one of the reasons it took me so long to start 10th Avenue Consulting. I wanted to make sure what I could offer was different, refreshing and needed.

Since 2000, I have had the opportunity to work with Fortune 500 companies, financial firms, niche technology startups and non-profits of all sizes. As I look back I see a consistent theme—I have made each of these organizations better by helping them embrace simplicity, guiding them to use technology efficiently and influencing cultural change.

I have always said “a technology project is never just about technology”—there is always some other underlying need at stake. If that need is not addressed, the benefits of the technology will never be fully realized and often the project will fail.

Today, I get the opportunity to serve as an advocate, coach and technology professional for non-profits and small to medium sized businesses. By employing my skills in project management, Salesforce and organizational strategy, I can help your organization navigate healthy technology change.
