Digital Transformation Consulting Services

We provide digital transformation solutions for your organization to improve efficiency, build brand integrity and help you move your business forward. Nestell & Associates offers full-scale digital transformation consulting services for companies in the U.S. and around the world.

We Execute End-to-End Digital Transformation Strategies

Our team will prepare and implement digital transformation technologies using our proven process of cultural assessment and readiness, business due diligence, enterprise resource planning (ERP) selection, training and go-live support.

Proven Methods Based on Core Principles

At Nestell & Associates, we understand that every organizational context is different, and our methods allow for that. We don’t attempt to apply the same boilerplate to every organizational context. Although we use the same project management mechanics and core principles, we modify our digital transformation services to match the unique dynamics of each organization.

Allowing for Success and Failure Factors During Digital Transformation

Based on practitioner experience coupled with applied research, we understand that each large-scale ERP digital transformation initiative has a long line of success–or failure–factors that impact the outcome. The emphasis and/or “pain point” given to each one of these influences could vary significantly from one organization to the next. Rather than catering our projects to align with a rigid boilerplate approach, our digital transformation consulting services address the very specific needs, gaps and strengths of your organization.

Case Studies as a Tool

There are general themes that occur as common denominators that can be applied across varying organizational contexts and industries. Understanding and reviewing case studies help us as digital transformation practitioners to shed light on perceived issues, strengths and gaps in an organization — and the real and root issues that drive potential organizational disconnects during a large-scale ERP initiative.

What People are Saying

John Leibert

My entire development, implementation and support teams have worked with Jack on some difficult and challenging projects over the past several years. As President of FACTIVITY, it is my personal observation that Jack’s discipline, experience, and value-added approach offers an insight and perspective that even experienced professionals can learn from.

Steve Staudenmayer

I’ve had the pleasure of working daily with Jack over nearly two years on implementing, improving, and maintaining our company’s ERP system, business intelligence, and reporting.  He’s been a great mentor and leader, and has been the undeniable key to the success of the ERP system’s implementation.   I know Jack to be a great communicator and organizer, who is highly knowledgeable and insightful in ERP and many other areas of IT.  He is very practical in his approach, emphasizing the importance of aligning company culture and business processes with the ERP system (and vice versa, when appropriate).  Besides that, Jack is just a great person to work with in general, who is trustworthy, open to ideas, and a highly positive influence on the organization.

“I met Jack in January 2013 while he was managing an-going ERP implementation at his current manufacturing concern. He clearly indicated the urgency facing his concern and the need to “turn on” the solution in January 2013. Although there were a number of shortcomings that required immediate attention, Jack established a team of resources and a plan to correct the shortcomings and bring to pass a first class solution for the company.

Impressive was Jack’s attention to details and his concern on the impact that it would have on the human element. Training, assignment and ownership of business processes, changes to the roles from past to future was of utmost importance to him.

His ability to work through these elements and establish a sense of confidence that individuals can move forward and the “change” would be beneficial to all was amazing.

Clint Brice

Jack has put together a transcript that we can all learn from in the industry. What he did during the ERP transformation captured the essence of what everyone tries to achieve, but so few rarely do. Through his leadership and passion, the industry can see an illustration of a different way to approach these types of transformations and the ability to do “more with less” while still being wildly successful. Jack has unique capabilities and skills, and we are excited he has decided to share his story with the market.

Paul F. Magel

I have had the pleasure of working with Jack Nestell over the past few years on a significant ERP project.  I first met Jack during his ERP evaluation phase and I found him to be one of the most knowledgeable individuals in the ERP space that I have come across in my career.  He was clear in what he wanted and more clear in how he wanted to manage the implementation of the solution.  Jack employed a methodology during the implementation that led to  successful outcome and a realization of the benefits promised at the outset.  His professional style of leadership was effective as he oversaw resources from his team, the business users and the various vendors.  Always firm and consistent in his direction along with the appropriate amount of flexibility to deal with the day to day issues that you encounter in any sizable project.  Jack is a true ERP professional with the real life success to back up his credentials.  A rare breed.

I have had the pleasure of working on one of my most memorable and successful 5 Month Rapid implementation projects led by Jack.

I have had the pleasure of working with Jack on some very cutting edge enterprise technology projects.  I have found his team building / collaborative / pragmatic approach to leading these projects to be quite unique and invaluable in helping the team obtain its objectives.  All of these challenging projects had multiple stakeholders and Jack’s ability to conduct the “orchestra” is quite impressive. I hope to work with Jack on projects in the future.

Don Martin

I have spent 30 years of my career often engaged as an interim C level manager. Several of these assignments included ERP installations, for a variety of reasons.  I met Jack while serving as interim CEO  at a company that was carved out of a large public entity by a PE.  Jack immediately impressed me with his organizational skills in planning the installation. Then, his technical know- how was augmented with his ability to communicate both up and down the organization, he dealt with resistance intellectually rather than emotionally, constantly adjusted the schedule to account for surprises while maintaining the schedule, and did all this with integrity and transparency.  The most successful ERP installation I have ever witnessed.

Joe Choorapuzha

I had the pleasure of working with Jack Nestell over a full ERP implementation as part of a corporate divestiture.  Jack’s hands-on approach truly benefited the company, as his recommendations and our strategy were driven by a bottoms-up understanding of the business.  In addition to leading the entire process, Jack worked with key functional leaders throughout the business to ensure that all business needs were contemplated.  I would welcome an opportunity to work with Jack again in the future.
