Management Consulting for Software & Hardware Companies
PJM Consulting can help improve your tech business in a number of ways.
Do you need an "outside view"; advice on strategy from someone who has "been there before"? We specialize in working with CEOs and senior management teams of software & hardware companies on the most difficult and pressing issues, often by helping to eliminate those very costly errors before they occur. We also provide assistance in the optimization of a company's structure, strategy and tactics when they are "in-flux" due to high growth, a turnaround or an M&A event.
PJM Consulting is not just your typical "strategy consulting" firm. We don't just write a report and move on. Even in a typical consulting assignment we tend to pitch in and get our hands dirty when needed. In addition, we can also provide operating executives on an "on-demand" basis. Do you currently have a hole in your team, and need an interim CEO, COO or VP Marketing? PJM can provide one.
Entering international markets or indirect distribution channels for the first time? PJM has many years of experience successfully planning and executing new domestic and international distribution strategies; we can head up the effort to get you off on the right foot.
Planning to make your first company acquisition or starting a new business division? Have some other new initiative or critical project, for which specific skills, experience or a proven leader is lacking? PJM can jumpstart these efforts, providing expertise, advice, direction or always-scarce senior management bandwidth.
Our firm has many years of experience in building, leading and consulting with software and hardware companies. PJM Consulting is a ready source for expert advice and hands-on assistance, providing you with the edge you need to grow your company in a highly competitive marketplace.
Our core functional competencies reside in the areas of General (P&L) Management, Product Marketing/Planning, Corporate/Business Development and Multi-Channel Distribution. However, PJM Consulting has broad experience building technology-based businesses and can assist in most aspects of company operations.The only thing we don't do is actually write software code (although we've managed many software projects).
PJM Consulting features an inter-disciplinary approach to performance improvement, which optimizes and integrates the critical functions of a tech business to dramatically accelerate marketplace traction.
Our domain experience spans many software and hardware markets and technologies - see our Services page for more details.
