Starter Programs

If you’re excited by the prospect of methodology engineering at your organization, but unsure where to begin, consider our Workplace Diagnostics QuickStart package. This service is offered for only $999 for any organization. For this low price, you get the following:

  • Onsite kick-off meeting with major stakeholders to outline the QuickStart program
  • Individual 30-minute interviews with up to three of your employees, managers or clients
  • Online Client Access to our project management system for the duration of your project
  • Report of Findings which details our research, analysis, discoveries and recommendations

Best of all, we anticipate results in as little as 10 business days, depending on your availability to schedule meetings and provide site access. Exploring methodology engineering is affordable and readily available. Contact us today to enroll!

Comprehensive Services

Although you can learn a great deal from an initial diagnostic, the primary value of methodology engineering comes from deep understanding of the nature of current challenges, the design programs to refresh and rebuild business processes, and implementation support to help a business embrace new systems as a constant routine. Changing the pattern of work requires the use of just that, change—the most difficult activity of those common to all organizations. Although many businesses, non-profit and government operations may openly admit a desire to transform their internal processes, tools and relationships, not many are ready to commit to a complete methodology engineering lifecycle.

To assist in a daunting process of pursuing change, Slaughter Development offers each of the major service phases in individual packages. And yes, we state projected costs, as part of our pricing philosophy:
