Common IT Pain Points We Can Help You Organisation Overcome!

Pain Point: Insufficient IT Management Practices

Nestell & Associates provides IT standard operating procedure (SOP) review, creation, and guidance. We understand that the lack of standardization and procedures within an IT environment is a significant risk to the business. We help organizations establish a formal and disciplined approach to IT support and services so that business objectives are effectively met. Contact us today to learn more about our IT consulting expertise. 

Pain Point: Misaligned IT Strategic Vision

Nestell & Associates understands that PE success is both the long and the short game. IT and ERP success is in the project life-cycle journey (pre, go-live, and post) and not just a final “go-live” destination. Nestell & Associates supports organizations in creating, communicating, and aligning IT strategic vision with business objectives. Nestell & Associates starts with a sound strategy based on proven principles of change management, project management, effective organizational learning, and organizational culture. That expertise coupled with our technology prowess is a recipe for success.

Pain Point: IT Competitive Advantage

Remaining competitive requires well-managed and appropriate technology that can be successfully assimilated within the organization. Nestell & Assocaites understands technology and effective implementation that can bring your organization a competitive advantage. 

Pain Point: Insufficient IT Project Management

Our IT project managers are highly qualified and tenured professionals. When it comes to expertise, we rest our case on our team’s resumes. We understand the challenge of sorting through and deploying effective technology and how to consider and utilize the latest in technology, our experts can guide you with sound, disciplined, and detailed oriented project management. 

Pain Point: Lack of IT Expertise and Experience with Integration of Acquired Companies into Existing Systems and Processes

We know how to leverage existing resources, professionalize IT environments, and standardize technology stacks. Nestell & Associates IT team is a highly experienced and certified group of professionals that have “been there done that”! 

Pain Point: Insufficient Legacy Systems

We understand the challenge of inefficient, disparate, or outdated systems and processes. This can create data silos and difficulty accessing important information and integration with new technologies. We get that powerful technology is a critical business tool. Technological hand-cuffed organizations are at a serious competitive disadvantage. Nestell & Associates has highly qualified and certified systems design and security engineers.

Pain Point: Project Planning Fallacy

We do all we can to prevent the “planning fallacy”. This starts by not telling people just what they want to hear and by “dotting i’s and crossing t’s”. (“The planning fallacy is a phenomenon in which predictions about how much time will be needed to complete a future task display an optimism bias and underestimate the time needed. This phenomenon sometimes occurs regardless of the individual’s knowledge that past tasks of a similar nature have taken longer to complete than generally planned (Wikipedia).” Nestell & Associates IT consulting team understands the knowledge, motivational, and organizational factors that lead to project fallacy! 

Pain point: Inadequate Cybersecurity Support, Technology, and Procedures

Cybersecurity concerns, data breaches, inadequate data privacy, and lack of security measures can create serious organizational risks. Nestell & Associates provides IT security due diligence and audits. Our IT consulting experts provide IT security strategy, security management, business control, and IT risk management services that ensure internal and external compliance. 

Pain Point: IT Resource Constraints

Nestell & Associates offers IT resource staff augmentation. We understand the value of improving organizational performance in the most effective and efficient manner possible by properly and appropriately leveraging resources. Nestell & Associates provides customized IT support.

Testimonials

What People are Saying About N&A

“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.

Justo Beauchamp
President - JBM2 Consulting

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.

Ralph Berry III
Director at CBIZ MHM, LLC

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.

Clint Brice
Chief Executive Officer - Lucidity Consulting Group

I have been working with Jack for the past couple of years and have had the privilege of providing him with some great resources when needed. I have seen firsthand how well Jack manages and executes large, complex and time sensitive ERP initiatives. Jack’s success comes from not only his passion, energy and insightfulness but also how he puts as much emphasis on the human element and creating the right culture as he does with making sure he has the right technical skillset on each and every project.

Chris Borsini

I have had the pleasure of working on one of my most memorable and successful 5 Month Rapid implementation projects led by Jack. It was an amazing experience to see how his positive energy and ‘gung ho’ approach literally charged each one of us on the implementation team daily.  Besides his dedication to work and positive attitude, he has exceptional motivational and team building skills. There is a lot to learn from Jack!

Upendra Kulkarni
President MMBC Consulting, Inc.

Jack has a boundless desire to see organizations succeed. It is important for leaders to learn about their organizations and utilize applied research to address the challenges they face for sustainable improvement; this skill and approach sets Jack apart. His passion coupled with knowledge towards his field of digital transformation is quite admirable.

Dr. Eric A. Canny
University of Southern California

Lucidity had the pleasure of working with Jack on a mission critical, 5-month ERP transformation that was very successful. From the onset, Jack took an “out of the box” approach that allowed him and team to navigate many of the normal constraints on such an aggressive timeline for this transformation. What was accomplished with Jack under his leadership was remarkable and industry-leading, and his ability to do “more with less” was an illustration for us all to learn from. Lucidity teamed with Jack to help him deliver on time, within budget, and meet the boldest expectations for his business – no production downtime, no lost sales revenue, no orders unfulfilled, no negative change in customer relationships, no changes in shipping expectations, and many more. Jack is an authentic, thoughtful CIO with a passion for doing things different for his business and his track record proves that…with this project just being another illustration of his capabilities and skills. We were excited to be his business partner and look forward to working with him for many years to come.

Clint Brice

Complacency is the enemy of change. When companies are at the crossroads of a significant change such as a new ERP system, complacency becomes a primary obstacle. Jack has an immense ability to break down that obstacle to progress the project while aligning stakeholders. His extensive background in IT provides him the ability to be process focused while conveying his message from a pragmatic approach. Being a senior leader of SML, I was fortunate to experience Jack’s methodical approach. His ability to connect with non-IT centric leaders and provide a thorough understanding of the objectives, approach, obstacles and solutions, helps lead a successful roll out. Anyone that has worked with Jack would quickly attest to his passion, determination and assurance.

John Leibert

Jack was able to gather and effectively communicate information in an organized labor environment. He  was able to dissect our systems, correct, and distribute information in a more effective manner, much like a surgeon.

J. R. Bray Jr.

To get results, people have to understand, and they need to buy in…. Jack avoids the typical overflow of consulting jargon and instead moves directly to readily absorbable concepts that work.

Doug Schrock

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.

Not only is he dedicated to the success of his own work, but he has a genuine passion to transform the field by sharing best practices broadly with clients, colleagues, and other practitioners.

Dr. Courtney L. Malloy
Malloy Research Consulting

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.

Don Martin
Principal D. R. Martin & Associates

In my experience, getting people to understand and embrace the change is generally the most significant challenge of major undertakings. I’ve consistently seen Jack move large teams with his up-front, no nonsense approaches that brings confidence that the initiative is actually going to work.

Doug Schrock
Partner in charge, Consulting Advisory Services, Crowe Horwath

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.

Joe Choorapuzha
Incline Equity Partners, Partner

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.
