On-Site Coaching and Mentoring
What Shirley has found to be an effective method is for her to act as an on-site coach and mentor. This means she is not permanently on site. She spends time initially to get the project moving, assisting the team to organize responsibilities. She gives coaching and customized training in technical areas that are lacking or rusty in the team. As an ongoing support mechanism, she is then available to come in for a day or longer at a time to relieve pressure points in the project. She can either take on specific tasks to assist the team, or give a hand-up to team members who are battling with particular technical areas in their workload.

On-Site or Remote Consulting
Shirley is freely available for remote or email consulting, also partially available for telephone consulting. Availability for On-Site consulting would be better suited to short periods and specific tasks, as her schedule is normally quite full.

Training
Shirley is available primarily via SAP Denmark, and occasionally via other SAP subsidiaries, for their standard training courses. Her student ratings are consistently high (average above 6,5 out of 7) because, along with her technical knowledge, she has developed reliable pedagogic skills. Consult Logic can also offer customized training for non-standard requirements within the skills areas above.
