Wayne Smith
Senior executive with over thirty years of experience in defining, managing, and delivering high-performance technology engagements over a broad range of industries, application areas, and technologies. In particular, Mr. Smith has demonstrated the ability to rapidly understand the key drivers of a business, and then assist clients in developing an integrated business, technology, information, and people strategy to leverage those drivers. Two key alignment steps are often vital to the success of these efforts:
  • People and cultural alignment. The need to understand the case for change and its relationship to each individual and the mission, and then build a collaborative and inclusive environment that allows people to succeed.
  • Business and technology alignment. The need to bring an integrated strategic solution to a business that incorporates and exploits technology to achieve the business and marketplace objective.
