On fretted instruments, such as an electric guitar , the performer can look at the frets to determine where to stop the string and where to touch the node.
On unfretted instruments, such as the violin and related instruments, playing artificial harmonics is an advanced technique, as it requires the performer to find two precise locations on the same string. Harmonics may be either used or considered as the basis of just intonation systems. Composer Arnold Dreyblatt is able to bring out different harmonics on the single string of his modified double bass by slightly altering his unique bowing technique halfway between hitting and bowing the strings. Composer Lawrence Ball uses harmonics to generate music electronically.

Companies need to grow profitably to be successful. This issue is exacerbated by the dynamic nature of the market that quickly renders long term capability acquisition and development plans, based on annual business planning rounds, ineffective.
Harmonic helps our clients to generate market focused capability acquisition plans aligned across their opportunity pipeline to optimise potential for profitable growth. Creating a genuinely competitive edge, especially in mature markets, is challenging and it is almost impossible for a company to dispassionately review their own competitive position.
Harmonic supports our clients' win strategy thinking throughout the pursuit lifecycle, using a structured and sometimes painfully objective approach; challenging the client to align to their customers' driving issues with a solution that is clearly differentiated to enhance competitive advantage.

Translating a good win strategy into a high quality, coherent and compelling proposal requires skill and discipline. Companies in growth are not able to run as many first class bids as they would like, as the relatively small number of real in-house experts are inevitable stretched.

Too frequently, money is poorly spent on bids that fail to match the promise of the win strategy. We understand that the inevitable capability gap cannot be effectively resolved by simply reallocating labour from around the business — availability is not a skill. We deploy highly experienced and skilled people and a range of proven tools to make the most impact on your ability to win. The start-up phase of any programme is critical; setting the tone for the whole undertaking both inside the organisation and outside across the supplier network and with the customer.
Mobilising programmes invariably face significant challenges.
These include the retention of corporate knowledge from the pursuit phase and the high risk and high cost of deploying the delivery team in advance. This leads to pressure on delivering early milestones, exacerbated by the need for key staff to focus on the resourcing effort. This allows them to concentrate their core team in the right areas and identify where we will take responsibility so that between us, we ensure early delivery performance.

Large complex are always subject to some level of volatility in capability demand that is difficult to plan for and support, especially when other programs are suffering similar pressure. This volatility results from a whole range of events including customer internally driven change, risk mitigation, changes in regulation etc. The typical response to this is the hiring of temporary agency staff at short notice that eats time and typically results in a sub-optimal solution: Complex programmes, particularly those won in fierce competition, invariably contain a significant level of risk and a proportion of these will face challenges that are beyond the capacity and potentially experience of the existing team to resolve.
Typical responses to this situation, such as a more frequent reporting or throwing in additional resources places even greater demands on the existing team and are often counter-productive. We have an objective and practical approach to identifying what needs to be done which supports the existing team in solving their problems, without placing additional burdens on them. We work collaboratively with key stakeholders in the organisation, their supply network and often their customer to identify the issues and establish and embed practical measures for recovery and to avoid re-occurrence.
We deliver winning proposals through pragmatically deploying specialists and best practice tools and techniques to ensure effective execution of the win strategy. We can provide support to single bids through to providing a turnkey bidding operation for the entire enterprise. We leave our clients better equipped to win and deliver key contracts.
In addition to delivering capability improvement initiatives we also seek to provide targeted upskilling of the client team via a range of mechanisms including shadowing, mentoring, coaching or training throughout an engagement. We ensure that client solutions are both competitive and deliverable by bringing together programmatic and engineering capabilities into an integrated whole that addresses the wide range of stakeholder drivers and interests.
