Our Remote Offerings
For the duration of the crisis, Scarecrow Consultants Ltd will
continue to offer its normal services, albeit mainly remotely.
All of our remote offerings are available globally providing, of
course, you have an Internet connection!
All prices quoted below are ex-VAT.
Remote Consultancy & Mentoring
Scarecrow will continue to offer MBSE consultancy or mentoring to
clients, however, this will now be carried out remotely.
Both remote consultancy and mentoring will be charged at our standard
back-office rate of £650 per day, which is 50% of our standard on-site
The minimum purchase will be for one day of consultancy or mentoring, in
units of one day.
This can then be called off as necessary by the hour, in units of one
hour ensuring that our support is as flexible as possible.
Scarecrow will be offering its training courses remotely.
The minimum purchase will be for a full course so, for example, if you
want to remotely attend a two-day course, then it is necessary to book
for both days.
We will be offering two types of remote training course:
- In-company Training Courses. These courses will be for a single customer
and not open to public attendance.
All of our regular training courses
will be available, with tool-based bolt-ons available (e.g. Sparx EA, No
Magic Cameo Modeller).
Such courses can be booked in advance for
call-off when required, with flexible delivery an option (i.e. days need
not be delivered consecutively).
- Public Training Courses. Scarecrow will schedule at
least four training courses per month, each of at least one day
duration with a minimum of one course scheduled per week.
current schedule and booking information for these courses
is available here.
If there are specific subjects concerning MBSE that you would like
training on, please let us know. We have an internationally-recognised
team of experts and will be able to help.
Remote training will be charged at the rate of £300 per person
per day and numbers will be limited to 12 attendees per course.
For in-house courses, the rate is capped at £2000 per day,
offering a significant discount for courses with seven or more
delegates; if books are required (see below) the rate is capped at
£2500 per day including books.
All attendees will receive an electronic (PDF)

to the course delivery.

if you want to remotely attend a two-day event, then you have to
purchase both days; you cannot pick which days you want and only
attend part of an event).

appreciate that companies may be under-staffed and require extra
short-bursts of MBSE support. With this in mind, please bear in mind

- Reviews. We can review your existing models for
correctness, quality, maturity etc and provide guidance on how
to improve them

terms of the processes and framework that you have in place
against current best practice and provide recommendations for
