Biography

My professional focus is core business strategy in the technology space with a particular interest in the startup and blockchain project ecosystems.  Firms that are doing something genuinely differentiated in global growth markets interests me a great deal.

My background includes 20 years in the technology space as a systems engineer, problem solver, communicator, and strategist.  I also blog at strategy-not.com where I write about the intersection of strategy, IoT, cybersecurity, blockchain and global growth markets.

 

Experience

Strategist and Technologist

Raytheon Corporation
January 2008 - present

My work involves three critical areas:

1. Strategy & Product Development: Push the conversation on redefining the competitive positioning around weather with the National Weather Service and, in conjunction with the AWIPS Raytheon team, create new platforms, products, and services to protect the the lives of the American people and their property.

2. Analytics: Make sense of the Service’s ever growing national operational and investigative data sets to uncover meaningful patterns and insights, as well as, further unlock the value of predictive models the Service creates on a 24/7/365 basis.

3. Operational Execution: Manage and distribute accurate weather prediction products to every American household on a time sensitive basis utilizing approximately 200 interpretable forecast models focused on prediction and probability across several IT platforms and two satellite systems.

Key success factors of my role are a very clear understanding of the organizational culture within the Service, the demands for analytic insights, communicating findings to important constituencies, and making sure my team hits their contract SLA requirements.
