  • My Work: Meeting the Challenge of Moving Targets

At the same time, the rapidly changing competitive landscape requires agility, flexibility, and dynamic cost management.
  • Elevator Speech.

    The proven approach is to integrate multiple-supplier service delivery within the enterprise. I specialize in negotiating and operationalizing IT contracts and implementing multi-year sourcing strategies. I also design and implement governance and service delivery management processes.
