As above, there will be two common and parallel threads in our process. The first will be learning the Wolfram Language and learning it will open doors to what's possible in your daily work. The second will be to work together to define the sorts of custom tools that would be most beneficial to your work. These may simply be increasing your ability to take advantage of all the built-in computational knowledge of the Wolfram Language. Or it may involve creating custom tools in the Wolfram Language that you and your colleagues (or laboratory, or business unit,...) can continue to use and develop.
As you learn the Wolfram Language and the full technology stack that is intertwined with it (much of which is written in the Wolfram Language itself) you will start to ask questions of the "Can it do X...?" and "What if Y...?" sort. And this will catalyze discovery and a cascade of similar types of questions.
The collaborative model of engaging in these two threads sits somewhere between pure pedagogy and a strict consulting engagement. We will learn the Wolfram Language and at the same time work together (and thereby learning the Wolfram Language even more by doing) to build valuable tools that you might have wished you could delegate to an outside contractor.
The Wolfram Language is an Enabling Technology and, as such, it allows you to investigate areas that you otherwise might not have thought you could even begin to explore.
To get some sense of what it's capable of, take a look at Stephen Wolfram's recent–very quick–overview of the Wolfram Language**:
