LPM is a critical enabler for increased Business Agility, yet it can be highly complex and at times intimidating for organizations beginning to explore its benefits. Having led large scale, multi-national PMO’s, Programs, and Enterprise Transformation Governance functions in the past, I’ve recently been exploring ways to build modularity and options into how we engage organizations in the LPM journey. The goal is to focus on the wide-spread benefits, but then provide stakeholders a range of options in terms of what they take on, at what depth, and in which order. This approach has tested well, and is currently being adopted at multiple Fortune 200 clients, and embraces Agile principles of Pull-based, incremental Change Management in the area of Lean Portfolio Management.
I’m currently an Enterprise Business Agility Strategiest at AgilityHealth, where I assist enterprise clients in their efforts to accelerate their Business Agility journey. I am also the SME / Technical lead for our EBA practices, and play a material role in evolving and maturing our EBA Model and delivery practices over time.
Prior to joining AgilityHealth, I held a number of COO, Vice President, and Director-level roles at leading international and US-based organizations, including: JPMorganChase, American Express, AIG, Intercontinental Hotel Groups (IHG), Simplified Asset Management, and E*TRADE. In terms of academic background, I hold an MBA, with concentrations in Strategy and Economics, from New York University, and hold a wide range of professional accrediations, including:
- Enterprise Business Agility Strategist (EBAS and EBAT)
- Leading Scaled Agile (SA)
- Certified Scrum Master
- Amazon Certified Solution Architect
- Amazon Certified Developer
- Six Sigma Master Black Belt
