I am Chief Executive of Know-how Consulting in Honolulu, Hawaii. This consultancy provides performance coaching in areas such as collaboration, knowledge management, intellectual property, virtual teams, as well as program, project and risk management. I also have long experience in product development, managing project portfolios and strategic planning.
I have spent my 30-year career in high technology and medical product development and operations, managing at companies such as Hewlett-Packard, Nellcor, and Hoana Medical. My background includes significant periods in Research & Development, Operations as well as Marketing. My career includes five-person start-ups, all the way to 350 M$ high-volume businesses with thousands of employees. As different as these company situations appear, the fundamental performance problems remain the same.
I am one of the co-founders of ProjectConnections.com and have been certified as a Project Management Professional [PMP] by the Project Management Institute. I am also a Certified ScrumMaster [CSM].
