Eric Summons



********************************************* 

The following provides a brief overview of my professional work. My extensive experience with a variety of clients may be of service to your organization and I would be happy to explore that with you more fully. This includes:


1. Assessing individuals for employment, promotion and/or major changes in job requirements. This involves effectively managing the change processes, determining job requirements, assessing candidates on the critical factors related to effectively doing a job, or helping a successful candidate “get up and running on the job.”


2. Troubleshooting and/or developing key individuals and groups such as boards, leadership teams, project teams, etc. Determining why something went wrong and how to fix it, or advising how to make something work well from the start and supporting its implementation are key elements of this work. Further examples include structuring a board to improve performance, working individually with team leaders as they acclimate to their roles, or configuring project teams.


3. Building organizations. As “the architect” of people processes I work with the client to design performance management systems that will enhance productivity. Examples include: helping a company transition from a traditional management hierarchy to project teams; assisting in the choice and performance of team leaders; and developing the necessary coordination between teams and support services.
