Why eCameron Exists

Aligning Projects with Strategic GoalsWhether with employees, clients, or our client’s customers or vendors we have one goal—to do the right thing. We firmly believe that by analyzing any problem there are multiple paths to an equitable solution. Be it an issue in the strategy, with people, codified in process, or hidden in technology there is a constructive, often simple, solution that improves how you turn your vision into value.

The right thing, or the right solution, is not a contrived or forced solution. It conforms to the needs of all parties and does not unduly burden anyone. The result is executable and agreeable and leaves all parties knowing what they are accountable for.
