Coaching

Make Method R part of your team.

Hi, I’m Cary Millsap, founder of Method R Corporation. My colleague Jeff Holt and I have each spent more than 30 years making Oracle systems go faster. We’ve written three books about it. We’re known worldwide for our commitment to teaching others what we know.

What if you could make Jeff and me a part of your team? Think of the training opportunity. Think of the things we could help you iron out.

It’s fun to imagine, but the cost of hiring Cary Millsap and Jeff Holt full-time would be astronomical, right?

Well, it turns out that you can make us part of your team for a fraction of what it would cost to hire us full-time.

We are currently accepting new clients.

Cary and Jeff showed us how to trace and analyze our users’ Oracle application experiences. They’ve helped us make massive performance improvements with this information and their process!

How it works…

For a fixed monthly fee, Jeff and I can coach your staff and help you solve problems that may have been irritating you for ages. Of course, we can work with you through Zoom, without racking up travel costs. We’re also happy to come see you every once in a while if it makes sense.

Most of our clients get everything they need from us without even having us log into their system. In other situations, we’ll work independently from time to time as a player-coach. Regardless of how the work gets done, we’re happy to teach your team everything we know.

The stuff we do…

Here are some of the jobs we’re especially good at:

  • Optimize your Oracle performance (and a lot of non-Oracle stuff, too)
  • Lead code reviews for SQL, PL/SQL, C, C#, Java, Perl, PHP, shell scripts, …
  • Design or refine your application, from your UX to your data model
  • Test your next database or application upgrade
  • Detect and mitigate harmful performance trends
  • Make your application easier to diagnose and debug
  • Automate your software development testing process
  • Optimize your source code control policies
  • Automate repetitive tasks
  • Make better-informed decisions
  • Think more clearly and communicate more effectively

We make your systems and your people more valuable.

Jeff and I have a lot of experience. We know where most of the traps are, and the optimization methods and tools we use give us an unfair advantage over anything else you’ve probably ever seen. And we have a comprehensive professional network that spans the globe.

We can reduce your risk and help your team make clearer, better-informed, more confident decisions.

Bottom line, we do two things:

  • We make your systems more valuable.
  • And we make your people more valuable.

We are currently accepting new clients.

I can’t believe I was in my forties the first time I saw how to optimize a system the way Cary and Jeff do it. Now, it doesn’t even make sense to me that anyone would try it any other way.
