How I Work

Here’s my basic terms of reference…

So that you know what to expect, you stay in control, and we work together effectively ...

  • I work with digital content only.
  • I am an outsourced service; providing you with essential knowledge and expertise.
  • It is a pay-as-you-go service so that both parties are protected, and costs are minimized as much as possible.
  • We stay digitally remote from one another – no need for face-to-face meetings.
  • We can voice conference together via telephone, or we can video-conference via Skype, Facebook Video, or Google Hangout.
  • I provide all my own tools and equipment.
  • I will sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement with you at the earliest opportunity, depending on the nature of the requirement.
  • The initial consultation is free, and results in a high-level requirements document and product scope.
  • We agree on the requirements, approach, and payment plan before product development begins.
  • You always retain the rights to the material I produce for you.
  • I help take your ideas and transform then into workable product.
  • I stay flexible, so that you can maximise your creative talents.
  • The primary planning and document creation process is one of progressive elaboration and is almost always an iterative process.
  • The iterative process helps evolve ideas, moulding and morphing them into final product.
  • The engagement process provides opportunities for brainstorming and ideas-generation.
  • I act as your personal “sounding board”, capturing & articulating your ideas, sometimes challenging them, providing thought provoking feedback, and ultimately creating an environment of trust for developing 1st class material.
  • Methods for sharing documentation include Google Dropbox, OneDrive, or even email when necessary (using password-protected and encrypted documents).
  • Regular review points are essential: to stay on track and to ensure expectations are being met.
  • Your privacy is always preserved, and information is exchanged securely.
  • You are always in control – if the product is not developing as you expected, and we are unable to agree on appropriate remedial activity for whatever reason, we agree to mutually end the project and part company before animosity and regrets set in.
  • The type of planning material, business documentation and technical report I can produce for you is vast. If you need something else, not listed, let’s chat.
  • The task you need me to undertake is also highly flexible. You need something proofread – you got it! You require a technical report – just enquire. Whether the task is small or significant – let’s talk!
