Improving Your Information Technology
I am an IT management consultant having established my practice over a dozen years ago based upon experience working for several Fortune 500 companies; the last decade of that experience in senior and executive level management positions. My experience includes strategic planning and financial management, program management, software development, system integration, and infrastructure planning in industries such as banking, brokerage services, entertainment, financial services, and healthcare. As a senior IT consultant, I specialize in providing interim management support for organizations experiencing challenges with large scale programs, enterprise-level projects, or with functional teams that are not performing at necessary levels. I have experience managing project teams of over 100 individuals in large corporate environments as well as smaller teams in start-up organizations with limited resources. With experience managing six PMO's, I have overseen scores of programs and many hundreds of projects. I have also had functional line management responsibility for business analysis, design and development, quality assurance, configuration management, production support, data telecommunications, and operations. Utilizing the latest Lean and Agile management techniques backed up with over two decades of hands-on management experience, I am able to help organizations overcome their IT challenges and achieve their strategic goals.
I hold a graduate degree in Management Science with additional post-graduate studies at UCLA's Anderson School, a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification, and a Certified Scrum Master (CSM) certification. I am also a frequent speaker at local chapters of PMI, SCQAA, and IIBA on topics related to IT management practices and development methodologies.
