Many websites fail not because of shortcomings in technology or aesthetics, but simply because visitors can’t find the things they want. This may be because the desired content isn’t there, or because it is too difficult to find and use. I can advise you on best practices for designing a useful website, and/or review your existing site for potential problems.
I've managed teams in large companies, small companies, public and private. Co-located teams, distributed teams, offshore teams. I'd be happy to share advice, methods, and tools for your management challenges including hiring and firing, developing and retaining strong employees, and staffing for success.
