What’s in a name?
ShiftLeft refers to the process of looking for solutions that are one degree simpler — and often one step faster. Sometimes the best solution is to actually take some functionality or data away. Overly complex systems and superfluous data do nothing but take your eye off of what’s truly important.
Imagine a graph. Imagine that it represents your company’s performance over the last 12 quarters. Where does your eye go? Often we look to the end point and make conclusions before understanding what got us there. ShiftLeft. Look at what came before, and begin to ask HOW and WHY. Don’t rush to launch new programs or implement new software solutions. Step back and understand the context. ShiftLeft.
Just what you need.
At ShiftLeft we’re technologists, not computer geeks. OK. We’re computer geeks too. But anyone can implement software. ShiftLeft focuses on process before product. We won’t implement something you don’t need. Instead we help you find what you do. Often the solution is much simpler than you think.
When less is really more.
Lean Management is no longer just some abstract business practice; it is the new reality.
We start by helping you identify and understand the information you need to make smart business decisions. Do you have your finger on what’s really driving your business? What’s holding it back? Do you know where your profit centers are? Your inefficiencies?
More information isn’t necessarily better. The right information — information that is actionable — is what’s important. For one customer that meant cutting their operational reports from 22 to 3. The right 3. They didn’t need a software solution. They needed someone who could help them take a fresh look. Someone who could help them achieve clarity. The result was a solid understanding of their business’s key drivers.
In other words, we’re business analysts first. We take the time to understand your business and core processes. If (and only if) software is what’s called for, we recommend and implement the right applications to meet your needs. We don’t sell software but we do have experience with most of the software packages and the vendors.
From Customer Relationship Management systems to mobile solutions, from Search Engine Optimization to executive reporting and analysis, we provide the right tools for “helping growing companies achieve big company results.”
