How to position Archestra in your organization: Short-term or long, Archestra members pay special attention to maintaining a clear role under the manager’s accountability while acting as an agent for the manager. While the engagement has a target output, the process successfully continues beyond the consultant’s participation.

Variable and proportional Pricing: Archestra Pricing is sensitive to engagement scale and to type or size of organization.

Archestra helps plan budgets, and it significantly discounts for non-profits or social impact organizations; for long-term engagements; for small organizations; and for situations featuring development of shared I.P.

Typical range (large enterprise corp to small or non-profit):

$ 125 / hour (max) to $65 / hour (min)
$ 800 / day to $500
$ 3,500 / wk to $2500
$ 12,000 / mo to $8,000

Why clients have used Malcolm Ryder:

Malcolm works as a senior manager at the director level or higher, on initiatives that create or transform production strategy and products (including services) in IT-heavy business innovation.

He is recruited and known distinctively for bringing early detection and unique perspectives that generate solutions which become the next “normal” or resolve old chronic deadlocks.

He provides managers with a deep and agile senior level solution designer who produces effective progress in a road-mapped effort, during normal business hours.
