Chief Executive Officer and Optimizing Information Technology Strategy to Transform Information Technology and Align Information Technology With the Business
The W Group focuses on results, not just on the process. A deep understanding of the human sensitivities around IT services and outsourcing helps us adapt our approach to best achieve success for each client's organization, culture and business objectives.
Technology as an invaluable asset for most firms with more potential to drive competitive advantage and improve business performance today than ever before. Having served in both CIO and CEO roles at public companies, I’ve always been passionate about aligning IT toward making a business impact and increasing shareholder value. I believe every technology initiative or investment must align to a business goal and contribute to increased revenue, decreased cost, or regulatory/risk compliance … or you shouldn’t do it. It’s that passion I channel into WGroup, a leading technology management consulting firm, to help our clients evolve from operating IT as a cost center to leveraging IT as a strategic revenue generator. We help our clients transform IT service delivery and solve complex or strategic IT issues. Where do those issues typically occur? ♦ Governance of IT investment decisions ♦ Service delivery strategy – What work should get done? Who should do it? Where should it get done? ♦ IT Objectives – KPIs, metrics, goals ♦ Organizational Design ♦ Sourcing relationships & vendor management ♦ Security priorities & risk analysis ♦ IT processes & IT Service Management (ITSM) The impact of working with WGroup can be summed up through this story that gave us a proud moment. We led one of our clients through an extensive IT service delivery transformation – new operating model, new organizational model, advanced automation, and new sourcing relationships. In addition to marked service improvement, we calculated an $80 million savings in year 1. The client was initially skeptical. As it turns out, they didn’t save $80 million over that 1st year, they saved $81 million. Not only were we confident we could deliver savings, we were accurate in our assessment. It is the most gratifying feeling for our firm.
