Communication, our first priority
Founded in 2012, Leigh Consulting recognized a gap in the market to provide both strategy and execution expertise tailored to specific client needs. Too often clients are advised to follow a path of new buzz words and headline technologies without taking the time to know and understand client’s demands, business strategy and budget. Technology is a facilitator of business strategy and not an innovator. Each client is different, thus each Leigh Consulting engagement begins with a deep understanding of immediate term needs as well as near to long term goals. This dialogue assists with properly sizing and implementing solutions that will scale appropriately as your business strategy is set in motion.
Leigh Consulting remains current with technology offerings to provide a ‘best fit’ solution and ensure each client understands what options are available in the marketplace. Our consultants are well versed in both business processes as well as technology configuration and development resulting in a streamlined, efficient implementation approach. This also mitigates disjointed handoffs between business and development staff.
Planning is paramount
Strong program and project management are essential to each Leigh Consulting engagement. Successful solution delivery must combine business and technical expertise with proper governance, time and financial management. Leigh Consulting incorporates an appropriate allocation of time at the onset of each engagement to methodically plan the project and develop a risk mitigation strategy. This ‘ounce of prevention’ upfront has proven to be an invaluable exercise throughout the course of our client engagements through the years.

Business analysis is essential to any client engagement. Our consultants are experienced in soliciting requirements from client subject matter experts and properly documenting detailed business requirements and business process flows. Leigh Consulting’s proven methodology utilizes requirements gathering workshops and stakeholder review and approval gates prior to moving to design and implementation. Well documented requirements and process flow diagrams set the tone for the project and keeps both stakeholders and the implementation team in concert as the project progresses.
Leigh Consulting uses the traditional rigor of four basic test cycles for any project: unit test, system integration test, user acceptance test and performance/stress test. Each cycle is a building block to ensure the each part is working as expected and then the consolidated whole is also working and performing as expected. Our thorough test script development and requirements traceability matrix work to ensure all requirements are processes are met in the development. We utilize various methods/toolsets to performance test our clients systems. Leigh Consulting is also well versed in a variety of testing frameworks for test script retention, automated testing for project and regression testing as well as load testing.
Clients often need custom development as packaged software is not always a “one size fits all”. Our consultants review requirements to determine the best technical design to provide streamlined solutions with low overhead and ongoing maintenance for the client. Leigh Consulting also uses a pragmatic approach to custom development.
