WHO IS CHRIS BORGIA
has been helping businesses, governments, and individuals leverage technology and the web since 1998. In that time he has gained first-hand professional experience in a range of disciplines, including: Web Development, Design, Marketing, SEO, APIs, System Administration, Security, Content Development, Networking, Databases, User Interface, User Experience, Project Management and More.
TIME & TASK
With the deliverable ready for launch, the last step in the process if for me to report on how the entire process went. Stakeholders find these reports valuable as a broad overview for situational awareness and future effort.
INTERNAL & EXTERNAL
As tasks are completed, the overall project goals become met. When all subtasks are moved from doing to quality assurance, they can be reviewed one last time before being marked complete. Once all tasks are complete the product or project can be reviewed for go live.
ASSIST & TRACK
The third step is fleshing out a task board or project management tool with task requirements. Tasks are often broken down into phases, and subtasks. Either myself or a member of your team are assigned as an owner for each task.
FOCUS & EFFORT
The second step is roadmap generation, or refinement if a roadmap already exists. The roadmap serves as an outline of suggested effort. I make sure this effort gets done. Roadmaps often have milestones, task overviews, and user stories.
DIRECTION & EXPECTATION
The first step is onboarding whereby I learn more about existing structure, set goals, and gain access to systems. Goal setting is critical. A goal can be a single deliverable over a defined timeline or it can be multiple deliverables over an extended period of time.
FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVE
Few in the technology freelance sector offer a service like this, so let me talk specifically about what an outsourced CTO service looks like from a clients perspective:
It starts with you identifying a – A need you have for skilled participants to help launch a product or service, or a need you have for trusted partners to be available to you as projects evolve. Regardless if your need is specific or general, you are here because you want high calibre talent to help solve problems and fill voids, and you think a freelance effort might be more preferable than a direct hire.
Head hunters have access to talent, so you could use them, but you know in your heart of hearts a lot of talent will go untapped if you stick with only a headhunter or staffing firm -so you turn to your friends, peers and the internet to search for talent.
Most clients are referred to me, others find me online via search. Regardless of how you found me, you possibly just found someone who can help you address your needs, many of your needs. You think to yourself after reading a bit on this website that: “Chris Borgia seems to have experience in so many of the things we need help with”, and you might now want to know more about how I can help but a website alone is now not enough to connivance you, you want to talk to a real person.
To dive deeper, and see if I am a good fit, the first step is to schedule an initial meeting. If we both decide I can be a good fit for your project, I ask you to purchase the first few hours of no commitment consulting so I can get started working with you or your team. If all goes well, you can purchase another block of no commitment time to continue, or we can move you to an ongoing effort.
Time spent on your project is reported with my time reports. You always have access to these reports. They show a per minute accounting of what I have been doing to help meet your projects needs.
