THE PROCESS

[/cz_title][cz_title smart_fs=”true” id=”cz_79798″ sk_overall=”padding-top:10px;”]

FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVE

[/cz_title][cz_title id=”cz_49014″ sk_overall=”padding-right:20px;”]Few in the technology freelance sector offer a service like this, so let me talk specifically about what this service looks like from a clients perspective:[/cz_title][cz_gap height=”32px”][vc_column_text]It starts with you identifying a NEED – 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 might be a good fit for your project, I ask you to purchase a block of onboarding minutes so I can get started working. If all goes well, you can purchase another a block of time or subscribe to metered minutes monthly for ongoing effort.[/vc_column_text][cz_gap height=”24px”][cz_show_more_less id=”cz_73203″][vc_column_text]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.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]When To Consider Hiring Me[/vc_column_text][cz_stylish_list id=”cz_57439″ items=”%5B%7B%22title%22%3A%22Considering%20hiring%20me%20if%20you%20feel%20you%20need%20a%20c-suite%20level%20technology%20professional%20aligned%20with%20your%20business%20interests%20but%20are%20not%20yet%20ready%20to%20a%20hire%20full%20time%20CTO.%20The%20average%20salary%20for%20a%20CTO%20is%C2%A0%24185%2C000%20a%20year.%22%2C%22icon%22%3A%22fa%20czico-074-tick-inside-circle%22%7D%2C%7B%22title%22%3A%22Considering%20hiring%20me%20if%20you%20often%20find%20yourself%20working%20on%20digital%20or%20web-based%20projects%20and%20want%20a%20trusted%20partner%20you%20can%20rely%20on%20to%20help%20navigate%20and%20address%20any%20issues%20or%20questions%20that%20arise.%20%22%2C%22icon%22%3A%22fa%20czico-074-tick-inside-circle%22%7D%2C%7B%22title%22%3A%22Considering%20hiring%20me%20if%20you%20need%20a%20wide%20range%20of%20web%20and%20digital%20specific%20task%20completed%2C%20but%20would%20prefer%20a%20single%20point%20of%20contact%20to%20perform%20and%20manage%20that%20wide%20range%20of%20tasks%20instead%20of%20many%20practitioners.%22%2C%22icon%22%3A%22fa%20czico-074-tick-inside-circle%22%7D%5D” sk_lists=”font-size:18px;font-weight:500;” sk_icons=”font-size:24px;color:#3c9e42;” sk_overall=”padding-top:24px;margin-left:-6px;” sk_subtitle=”color:rgba(0,0,0,0.6);” sk_overall_tablet=”margin-bottom:50px;”][cz_gap height=”32px”][vc_column_text]Find out more about my service.[/vc_column_text][cz_gap height=”32px”][/cz_show_more_less][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][cz_gap height=”128px” height_tablet=”64px” height_mobile=”24px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1551386747993{padding-bottom: 0px !important;background-color: #333333 !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1541255785542{padding-top: 32px !important;}”][cz_tabs style=”cz_tabs_hbc” fx=”cz_tabs_blur” id=”cz_106270″ sk_tabs_i=”font-size:30px;margin-right:20px;” sk_content=”color:#ffffff;padding-top:110px;padding-bottom:80px;” sk_active=”color:#ffffff;border-color:#ffffff;” sk_tabs=”color:rgba(255,255,255,0.6);width:20%;padding-top:0px;padding-bottom:30px;margin:10px 0px 0px;border-style:solid;border-bottom-width:8px;border-color:rgba(255,255,255,0.01);” sk_content_tablet=”padding-top:30px;padding-bottom:50px;” sk_tabs_tablet=”width:33%;padding-bottom:10px;margin-top:20px;”][cz_tab title=”Report Progress” id=”cz_13564″ icon=”fa fa-paperclip”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner offset=”vc_col-md-6″][cz_image css_position=”relative;display: table;margin:0 auto” id=”cz_85302″ image=”1722″ sk_css=”padding-right:30px;” sk_css_tablet=”padding-right:0px;padding-left:0px;”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner offset=”vc_col-md-6″][cz_gap height=”32px”][cz_title shape=”icon” id=”cz_106427″ sk_overall=”padding-top:10px;” sk_shape=”color:rgba(255,255,255,0.2);top:-60px;” shape_icon=”fa fa-paperclip”]

TIME & TASK

[/cz_title][cz_gap][vc_column_text]With the deliverable ready for launch, the last step in the process if for me to report on how the entire process went.

COMPLETE EFFORT

INTERNAL & EXTERNAL

[/cz_title][cz_gap][vc_column_text]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.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/cz_tab][cz_tab title=”Assign Tasks” id=”cz_62024″ icon=”fa czico-100-user-1″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner offset=”vc_col-md-6″][cz_image css_position=”relative;display: table;margin:0 auto” id=”cz_65884″ image=”1724″ sk_css=”padding-right:20px;” sk_css_tablet=”padding-right:0px;padding-left:0px;”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner offset=”vc_col-md-6″][cz_gap height=”32px”][cz_title shape=”icon” id=”cz_81957″ sk_overall=”padding-top:10px;” sk_shape=”color:rgba(255,255,255,0.2);top:-60px;” shape_icon=”fa czico-100-user-1″]

ASSIGN TASKS

[/cz_title][cz_title id=”cz_98151″]

ASSIST & TRACK

[/cz_title][cz_gap][vc_column_text]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. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/cz_tab][cz_tab title=”Write Roadmap” id=”cz_82143″ icon=”fa fa-map-signs”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner offset=”vc_col-md-6″][cz_image css_position=”relative;display: table;margin:0 auto” id=”cz_72124″ image=”1721″ sk_css=”padding-left:30px;” sk_css_tablet=”padding-right:0px;padding-left:0px;”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner offset=”vc_col-md-6″][cz_gap height=”32px”][cz_title shape=”icon” id=”cz_36066″ sk_overall=”padding-top:10px;” sk_shape=”color:rgba(255,255,255,0.2);top:-60px;” shape_icon=”fa fa-map-signs”]

WRITE ROADMAP

FOCUS & EFFORT

[/cz_title][cz_gap][vc_column_text]The second step is roadmap generation, or refinement if a roadmap already exists. The roadmap serves as an outline of suggested effort.

SET GOALS

[/cz_title][cz_title id=”cz_56254″]

DIRECTION & EXPECTATION

[/cz_title][cz_gap][vc_column_text]The first step is onboarding, where I learn more about any existing structure, set goals based on your input, 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. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/cz_tab][/cz_tabs][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][cz_gap height=”150px” height_tablet=”80px”][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row]
