Creating Actionable Plans for Key Results: Aeritae Consulting Group


As your partner, our success is fully dependent on your success.”

CEOs Words: “Aeritae balances best practices, practical experiences, industry knowledge and standard frameworks to advance your IT Service Delivery and Support capabilities. We keep our eye on the customers’ goals and objectives for each engagement – striving to deliver clear deliverables and quality work product. We measure our success by the number of repeat client engagements. Being asked back to the dance is our goal. Repeat business is the true indicator of a valued partner. We understand that clients vote with their dollars, and we are only as good as the next call for more work!

 For all engagements, knowing your culture and staff is important for knowing the best consulting match. We carefully match communication style, knowledge and skill to our client. We make sure our staff is not just a technical fit, but also a personality fit. We believe in keeping our talent pool well stocked with real world IT talent, not just career consultants. Many of our consultants were recently IT leaders in large, complex IT organizations. They understand your demands and organizational pressures. Collaboration among our consultants is paramount. We ask them to share their career experiences with their peers to expedite problem solving and solution development for our clients. Therefore, if you see one Aeritae consultant on-site, you can bet they are tapping into two or three of their colleagues to solve your difficult challenges.”
