IT assets are critical tools and are important to successful project delivery only if they provide solutions to business-orientated objectives. It is our responsibility to utilize these tools to provide IT-centric solutions that enable and communicate business-defined objectives through an aligned corporate strategy.  “Excellence of Execution" is the link between having a great business idea and obtaining business results. It is achieved through: 1)  Precise implementation of  goals that are specific, quantifiable, and aligned with the organizational strategy; and 2)  The performance of the right people, with the right skills, in the right job, doing the right things.  Communication is key - it  aligns knowledge of current status and facilitates buy-in/ownership of strategic direction."

 

As a senior project manager, Michael can share "do and don't" experiences  associated with establishing mature information  management processes within mid-sized and large organizations.

 

Michael has applied project and risk management skills in the information technology sector as part of broader IT service management initiatives. His knowledge of ITIL, PRINCE, COBIT provides a solid foundation to approaches to structure IT services and mitigate business risk.
