Birmingham companies now have a choice when it comes to help with managing key strategic projects. According to company founder Brian Rabon, “Prior to now, companies had no local option, so they turned to big box consulting firms, racking up hefty fees and travel expenses.” Rabon’s new firm, The Braintrust Consulting Group, provides complete project management solutions for a wide range of software-related projects.
Birmingham, Alabama (PRWEB) January 6, 2010 – Founded on the latest agile principles, The Braintrust Consulting Group isn’t your ordinary consulting company. “We focus on a “C”-level mentality; ensuring that projects have an appropriate ROI and payback period, and that they are properly aligned with the overall organizational goals of the business”, according to company founder and president Brian Rabon.
Rallying against the stereotypical project manager, a bureaucratic paper pusher, Braintrust focuses only on process that adds true business value. Aligned closely with the Agile Project Management movement, Braintrust believes that a project manager’s number one goal should be to achieve successful project execution and delivery.
Ask Rabon why he started Braintrust and he will tell you, “After 13 years in the software development industry I have seen many project successes and all too many failures. In the past writing off millions of dollars for failed software implementations was unfortunate, but recoverable. In today’s economy companies can go out of business with this type of disaster.”
The Braintrust Consulting Group helps companies achieve a true return for their project management investment. They accomplish this goal by carefully evaluating a company’s specific needs and then blending a custom solution from their four service areas; people, process, tools, and training.
Agile Project Management grew out of the Agile Software Development movement and is focused on achieving; faster speed to market, lower development costs through higher productivity, while maintaining a high level of quality.
