DawsonReed is about understanding and improving business processes. We are based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and strive to improve the strength of businesses within the region. It is our goal to see local businesses thrive. We can help make that happen by applying our business process consulting expertise. Through our success locally we plan to expand and offer our expertise to other regions ultimately strengthening our country.
Business process consulting is the core of what our founders do and have done for the past 20 years. We have experience performing business process improvements in multiple industries by applying the core business process functions including business analysis, project management, strategic planning and technology.
Our skills and talents are not exclusive to either business or technology, but rather a convergence of these two areas into one specialty that can evaluate and create business solutions with technology in mind delivering the most value to your business.
If you're the business area, do you want to ensure IT understands your needs? If you're IT, do you want to ensure the business areas understand what you can do with technology? This is our strength - providing the conduit, acting as the translator, generating and creating ideas to improve processes and develop solutions that really work when implemented.
We operate as a "projectized" organization. A "projectized" organization is one that operates on a project by project basis. We have a principal consultant involved in each project and additional team members may come from the customers organization or other resources on an as needed basis.
Projects make up almost one-hundred percent of our services. A project is defined as a temporary endeavor that produces a unique product, service or outcome. It differs from ongoing operations that are defined as work that repeatedly produces the product or service of a company or job function.
What this means to you is that our goal is not to "hang around" on a retainer or something doing ongoing operations. We strongly feel that ongoing operations are something that should be done by the hiring organization, thus we work to enable and inspire that ability.
Part of our mission is to "inspire the ability in others." One client asked a bit humorously, "so you want to teach us to fish?" and we answered with a resounding "Yes!" Why? Because if you know the "how to", then you don't have to rely on contractors and consultants, resulting in lower ongoing expenses and additional profit for your business.
What Makes Us Different
We pass the information and knowledge learned through our efforts to our customers so they can be more self-sufficient in their daily operations without continued reliance on consultants. By doing so, we help improve your internal team. This is a key part of our consulting philosophy and what makes us different from other consulting firms.
We are eternal optimists. We are completely confident you will be excited about your business in a whole new way.
