Processes, operations, technology, data, and security can invoke feelings of angst from those not working in those areas. My goals as a business leader are to understand, listen, and deliver results through business processes and information via technology. I can help tell a better story to obtain buy-in and gain an understanding of the technology position to achieve business success.
👍🏻 WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT
As a trained researcher, I am familiar with the tools for data analytics. I have worked alongside my engineers on the raised floor – been there, done that. After doing this for over 20 years, I have seen my peers and colleagues struggle to receive the resources they need due to a lack of business alignment or understanding of the value-add of sound processes and information and technology services. I help my fellow executives understand the value-add of those services by telling a better story.
🚚 WHAT I DELIVER
I help those I work with understand their operations and technology position to enable their business by explaining the tactical position and strategic position in terms the audience understands and answering the question, “what’s in it for me?”.
