    How do I drive a successful technology project?

    First of all, I would like to thank Lora and her team for providing me an opportunity to write for Beet Fusion’s blog. While I used to write frequently when I was at Aberdeen Group, I’ve have been heads down in the world of Product Development/Management over the past few years. Writing is my passion, though, so I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to be an ongoing contributor to this blog. My content will focus largely on Sales and Operations Planning/Supply Chain Planning types of projects due to my professional experience and personal passions.
