What we do



IT Consulting
Management Consulting
Interim CIO
Retained Search
Think IT Association

Our model provides clients with an attractive alternative to the traditional staff augmentation model as we work with clients from the outset to determine the best course of action to meet their goals

Our flexible model delivers significant efficiencies in the areas of IT contractor resource selection, on-boarding, management, reporting, and transition. All of which allow talented individuals to be brought on faster, resources to become productive sooner, and hiring managers to focus their time on delivering projects. Our highly collaborative, blended-team approach is the backbone to our success.

We believe in a model for utilizing contracted IT resources that will produce improved results, including the following:

  • Minimize significant headcount fluctuations
  • Ensure retention of key resources
  • Increase vendor accountability
  • Improve forecasting
  • Ensure knowledge transfer

Areas of expertise: SAP, ERP, IT Security, Applications, Infrastructure, BI/DW, PMO, and QA.

Please contact us if you’re interested in more information about our consulting or staffing services through our custom resource solutions.

Helping organizations increase their performance through the analysis of existing organizational problems and development of plans for improvement.

We provide our clients with the expertise and leadership required for successful project definition, end-to-end delivery, and management. From the strategic thinking required during project inception to ensuring that new systems and efficient processes are successfully deployed and adopted by an organization, we bring a consistent, rigorous, and analytical approach to help our clients meet their business goals. We help our clients bridge the disconnect between IT and overall business strategy.

Under the umbrella of IT management consulting, we offer five key services:

  • Strategic & Tactical Planning
  • IT/Business Alignment
  • Change Management
  • Process Improvement
  • IT Governance & Standardization

Please contact us if you’re interested in learning more. 

We deliver proven leadership with the experience and capacity to transform a company’s IT capabilities and align technology investments with your business goals.

Many organizations in transition find themselves in a situation where short-term and long-term technology needs are unclear. Due to an unexpected CIO vacancy or organizational change, the result may be a void in IT leadership and a potential slowdown in key IT initiatives.

A proper CIO search and selection process could take 6-12 months to complete and promoting from within on an interim basis which could potentially result in the IT leadership being unable to meet the requirements of the business. 

At York, our experienced recruiters can conduct a search to find a skilled interim CIO who can quickly step in to keep the IT organization running smoothly, and allow the business the time it needs to hire the right person for the CIO position.

Typical services include:

  • Governance, controls, and efficiencies implementation
  • Strategic technology planning
  • Merger & integration planning
  • IT organization assessment
  • Application platform planning
  • Infrastructure optimization
  • IT staff, vendors, contracts, budgets, and IT assets management

 Contact us for more information. 

Fostering professional growth and development through the power of networking and collaboration

Think IT is a unique service that we offer to not only clients and consultants, but the IT community as a whole. Think IT was started in the Twin Cities in 2009 and is a professional development association designed for IT professionals. We currently have over 2,400 members in 7 different groups with individual focus on all levels of IT leaders in the Twin Cities, as well as over 400 members in 3 groups in Chicago.

Most Think IT groups meet on a monthly basis in an informal, roundtable format with a different member from the group facilitating (not presenting) each session. Members also have the opportunity to participate in a mentorship program and a leadership development program called Link to Leadership.
