Rescue Projects

Sometimes good projects go bad.

You might have an old data system that's frustrating your staff and hampering your work. Or maybe you've got brand new technology, and it was supposed to make everything better—but it's doing the opposite. Or maybe you're partway through a project that's gone so long and so badly you're about to give up and walk away. 

However you got here, we'll help you move forward.

Whether it was incomplete planning, problematic implementation, the wrong tech for your needs, or just a job left unfinished, we've got experience turning things around. We'll help you understand your options and chart a path forward in a way that supports your staff, leaders, board, users, and budget. 

Your rescue project will pose unique challenges—but we've been there before. 

We hope you don't need a rescue, because we know how hard they are. Your budget is gone, your staff are losing hope, the thought of starting over is unbearable, and the need that inspired the project in the first place is still there and just getting worse. We'll bring a fresh perspective and help you decide where to to keep going, where to start afresh, and how to meet your organization's needs in the meantime.
