About the bridger

Thebridger was founded in 2007 right after the financial crash. Thankfully we have been able to move form cost-cutting to driving Digital transformation again. Our focus is delivering Digital transformation  in both supportive and disruptive scenarios.

Our experience has taught us that while the global political situation changes wildly and the cycle of boom bust is always ready to spring another surprise, people don’t really change at all they just speak a different vocabulary, technology still speaks ones and zeros and process still finds its maximum level of incompetence left to its own devices. We focus our efforts on building bridges between People, Process and technology to get the job done.

We are expert as you would expect and carry certifications in many methods and approaches from rigid waterfall projects to Agile and many in between and we provide training, coaching and support to organisations in a variety of ways to help them acquire and develop skills, improve and ramp up capability or fill a short term need for expertise.

  • We can help with identifying and codifying the problem.
  • Defining business and process solutions.
  • Defining or procuring technical solutions.
  • Overseeing safe integration with existing technology.
  • Defining, producing and in some cases delivering appropriate training or just facilitating it.
  • Overseeing sufficient testing and User acceptance.
  • Planning and managing the disposal of old systems.
  • Defining safe data handling measures I line with PCI-DSS, GDPR and other regulations and ensuring compliance.
  • Defining product propositions.
  • Establishing MVP, Alpha and Beta releases
  • Providing Agile and Project management Training and coaching.

 

We make it as straightforward as possible to access the support.

The PM1 framework is a simple model that helps you access a blend of support, training, coaching, Interim help and short consulting engagements in any combination that suits. We also offer help in finding technical staff though we are not operating a recruitment business and we can do this alongside of your regular recruitment partner.

How to engage with us

It all begins with hello, please just put a contact number or email address into one of the forms and we will reply with an email confirmation and an invitation to arrange the most convenient way to start a conversation.

We don’t have a formal sales function nor a formal sales process, you will get to speak to a real-life consultant who will try to match you to the best person to discuss your subject area.  The following is a loose framework, but is more of a starting point than a rigid framework

Step one.  Agree ground rules, i.e. how you like to be contacted, or not as the case may be. What sort of answers would you like to achieve, are we a good match for this purpose and how what is the best approach to achieve your immediate goals in terms of working together ..

Step two. Agree an initial approach and an output format. E.g. “We will do a preliminary investigation of the problem you described, have a face to face and telephone calls as required and on “date” we will present a conclusion about what should be done and the alternative approaches. By “Date” you will decide if you want to continue and how.

  • If your requirement simply is to provide you an interim manager or coach for a time, or to deliver a training course, then this can be a very straightforward and lightweight process, but nevertheless the principles would remain the same.
