A Bit About Us

George Castellion

George Castellion: I’m a trusted advisor who, when I was a kid, had Sherlock Holmes as my hero. Unlike Holmes, who used both face-to-face and the phone in his elicitation work, I use the phone only. Among benefits of phone elicitation are:
– Quick to reach knowledgable people for elicitation conversation
– Great openness of the conversation
– Much lower cost

I began my consulting practice in 1985. Before that I was an inventor, a technology manager, and a marketing director.
