with Real-World Experience
I break through the hype and overused buzz words to analyze your situation, offer practical strategies and drive defensible, profitable growth.
What I Do
I find digital opportunities.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is impacting all industries - health tech, manufacturing, transportation and logistics, retail, supply chain.
At the same time, digital business models or “anything-as-a-service” (XaaS) are accelerating, driven by the "sharing economy" and the success of software-as-a-service business models.
I bring unique perspectives.
But what is IoT, and how do companies make money from it?
What really is XaaS, and how do companies adopt their business models to enjoy the benefits of XaaS?
How do the two intersect, to build recurring revenue flows, deep customer learning and delight, and enable further penetration?
I am the Secret Weapon you didn't know you needed.
I know what works, what doesn’t, what decisions to make, what problems to expect.
With over 25 years of executive strategy expertise in the “full stack” of technology businesses – networks, devices, services, software – I’ve created and executed credible, defensible strategies in leading companies around the world.
I am your stealth advisor for technology strategy and transformation.
