We use our business skills to provide objective advice and expertise while assisting organizations to develop skills that they may need.
A company's technology organization should support its business strategy, not constrain it. Shirey Advisory Group focuses first on the strategic needs of our clients' businesses to determine the technology capabilities needed to support their long term goals. We help companies confidently address technology related decisions and ensure their IT organizations and operating models are agile and effective, equipping them to cut through the noise of technology trends to create enduring results.
Shirey Advisory Group helps clients maximize the business results from technology initiatives, including turnaround programs. We help executives evaluate the case for investment, set up projects for success - or place current projects on the right track - to ensure they capture value when implementing new systems and programs.
Business complexity, broader technology adoption and increasing expectations force shifts in the role of IT. In the past, CIOs were focused on efficiency - supporting the business with optimal operational performance.
Now, CIOs are also expected to advance the business - developing flexible capabilities to increase effectiveness, enabling the business to grow. Additionally, there is an increasing expectation to drive innovation - adopting new technologies to differentiate the business. Our service offerings will help organizations to achieve new business goals for profitability.

“I had the opportunity to closely work with Rocky while he was the CIO of SOE Software. Rocky is a very senior information technology executive, passionate and pragmatist, having a wealth of experience managing software development, technology and people. Rocky was responsible for managing the development of complex and mission critical software applications as well as involved in the delivery and implementation of these applications in complex public sector projects with unmovable hard deadlines in the US as well as international. He is an exceptional leader and motivator, and greatly contributes to a positive work environment. Rocky has decades of experience in the IT sector which is something you immediately notice. He always comes up with excellent ideas and solutions and his outstanding communicating skills allows him to communicate these to senior management, customers, reports as well as other stakeholders. I have also seen Rocky’s exceptional coaching and mentoring skills, turning others into great information technology professionals. I strongly recommend Rocky for any CIO level position as well as for providing information technology consultancy. Rocky is an asset to any organization he works for.”
