Q & A

Why did you choose your profession?

Since high school, I have loved computer technology and mathematics, which drove me to study applied math, computers, system engineering, and information science, and participate in many math competitions solving puzzles and problems. My curiosity about technology propelled me to engage in various phases of technology development and deployment. I began my career by building modern content and knowledge management systems, enterprise identity management, and cyber security. Soon, I transitioned to implementation services, adapting and customizing the developed systems to customer needs and automating core business functions.

As the pace of technological evolution accelerated, my interests were advancing as well. I began helping Fortune 500 companies to address legacy systems constraints and orchestrate business-to-business (B2B) interactions to unlock new business growth opportunities. In the post-digital era, the confluence of cloud computing, cybersecurity, and digital platforms introduced new challenges for many organizations and the need for technology advisory services. Advisory services have become a logical progression in my interests and career, focusing on innovative ways to blend business and technology, helping executives rationalize the transformation toward the digital-first enterprise. 

Clients benefit from my knowledge of many technology systems and platforms, my experience with all phases of technology development, and the integration of business and technology into the core business function. I still love solving puzzles that now take on the form of business-technology challenges. As an advisor to C-suite executives, I enjoy solving sticky business challenges, driving technology adaption and innovation by connecting the dots unseen by others between business and technology, strategy and innovation, and value and values.

Who are your main influences?

Steve Jobs, Elon Musk,  Andy Jassy, Satya Nadella.

What is your greatest accomplishment?

I delivered many first-of-a-kind technology solutions, including modern identity management, knowledge management, and cyber security solutions.

One of them was done in partnership with a management consulting company. I led the development and implementation of cyber-economic services that delivered critical insight by combining social, economic, and cyber threat data in one Business Risk Report. The significance of the Business Risk Report was that, for the first time, the three sources of information were combined in one comprehensive report to aid consulting companies and their clients in getting insight for the executive decision-making processes.

What tools do you use?

My primary tool is my system thinking skills, which enable me to see products, processes, projects, and organizations at large as systems within a more complex system. This complex system functions within a VUCA (Vulnerability, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity) business environment. Thus, the complexity of systems interactions in VUCA cannot be simplified but needs to be acknowledged when developing solutions for the clients through recognizing systems patterns, influences, and interactions.  

My additional tools are management consulting publications and academic research that help keep me abreast of new business trends, platforms, tools, and techniques. 

What advice would you give to someone just starting out in your profession?

• Partner with an experienced mentor and assemble your own board of personal advisors.
Andy Jassy famously noted that: “ there is no compression algorithm for the experience.“
• D
efine your specialty and your market or industry differentiators – know and embrace your brand.
• Get ready to learn:
Learn from your mentors, a board of advisers, the industry, and your clients.
Do not disregard academic learning or research. While many university programs remain quite distant from industries, some exceptions exist. Many industry-oriented educational programs offer online and distance learning options. Find, enroll, and follow the program and research that resonates with you and your career goals.
