The consulting projects Dr. Andriole has undertaken tend to fall into strategic and operational categories. Another way to segment the work is into “diagnostic” and “prescriptive” categories where assessments of technologies, investment strategies, processes and marketing plans often lead to specific recommendations to buy, build, outsource, invest or divest. The projects last anywhere from a few days to several months; some longer. He has consulted for government agencies, private and public companies, private equity venture funds and investment banks.
