My vision is to help create a world where everyone can use technology and human-centered design to accomplish their mission more efficiently. I accomplish this by developing corporate strategy, eliminating roadblocks, and empowering staff to be successful and independent.
People don't make mistakes. Processes and governance structures, however, can be unrealistic and fail.

One-size-fits-all doesn't work, but custom software is expensive and buggy. Solution? A hybrid! Use what works and build the rest.

No technical solution will be successful without 3 things: training, proper governance, and management support. Consider the humans!
The correct technology and strategy makes it easy for people to eventually do the right thing and difficult to do the wrong thing.
