As a young and growing company, we had just finished a development project with a large US client and needed a strong debrief process. Dan facilitated a project debrief with the engineering team and developed a ‘best practices’ summary for us to implement on our next project. He was also very insightful and willing to share some industry best practices on estimating project time, implementing contingency reserves and legitimate buffers for high-risk tasks. It was all very relevant and immediately implementable.
