Asana Consulting with Larry

We begin with an assessment: Do you even need a consultant? If not, I'll tell you so and point you to Asana’s extensive self-study content.

Asana can be likened to a workshop of power tools: It offers many powerful features with few prescribed solutions, especially for your unique needs. I can help you navigate Asana's landscape to deploy appropriate, creative solutions.

I'll demonstrate alternatives from my library of customized workflow solutions and help you select from among them to put in place an architecture that will meet your goals while avoiding rework and dead ends.

Here are some ways we work with clients:

  • Leverage your investment in Asana and improve productivity
  • Streamline your existing Asana workflows
  • Do more with Asana throughout your organization
  • Create and implement Asana deployment and onboarding plans
  • Work alongside your team; ensure best practices take hold
  • Implement Asana integrations with your favorite applications

"I don't believe anyone knows Asana better than Larry. You can't ever trick him with an Asana-related question."

Bastien Siebman, leading Asana Solutions Provider

"You may be the answer to our prayers! Your remarkable sessions and Asana guidance are enabling us to reach the organizational development vision we have for this company, even in the midst of Covid response."

Oscar J. Espinosa, Deputy Chief, Graham Fire & Rescue

Why Asana Consulting?

Asana is a deceptively simple app that offers remarkable power and benefits for: individuals, teams, and entire organizations. Most clients I encounter are only seeing a fraction of the potential value from their Asana implementation. They're unaware of the vast range of solutions, workflows, and features Asana provides.

Even just comprehending what Asana can do is a struggle for many. I present Asana as:

  • Work management and tracking: Bread-and-butter Asana usage to know who's doing what by when, eliminate work about work, and prevent tasks from falling through the cracks
  • Project management: Complex or simple, no project manager required; what's the status, what's next, and what's left to do
  • Workflows/pipelines/mini-applications: Streamline and standardize processes, e. g., an editorial calendar, recruiting tracker, or approach to manage 1:1s with your staff
  • Information repositories: E. g., department policies/procedures, project documentation, even a lightweight CRM

When so many needs can be so well-accommodated by Asana, many benefits accrue if you more fully utilize Asana, perhaps even eliminating redundant apps from your tool landscape:

  • Greater productivity
  • Enhanced collaboration
  • Clarity and simplicity
  • Accountablity
  • Reduced costs

Our Asana Consulting services will enable you to unlock these benefits quickly, effectively, and comprehensively with best-of-class workflow solutions from one of the leading Asana Services Partner consultants worldwide.

"Larry introduced Asana to our firm and it has immeasurably improved our ability to be consistently focused, organized and effective in managing work across the company. Now we can't imagine business without it. Larry's customized demos were instrumental in getting our CEO to be an initial champion of the tool. He was a hands-on trainer for our early adopters and created self-study tutorials that are the foundation for how we on-board new users today. He helped us develop the architecture for complex initiatives and created project templates that helped us get off the ground."

"Your one-hour JumpStart provided many rich insights and I will keep building on the help you provided. So far, I’ve incorporated Milestones and Status Updates to our heavy project workload. This has allowed me a better understanding of what’s happening at any given time. I look forward to working with you again."

For Nonprofits

I enjoy working with nonprofits large and small at a reduced rate and sometimes pro bono.

"👋🏽 Larry: The reigning Asana nonprofits champion!! So excited to learn from you."
