"Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying." --Studs Terkel
I've found meaning in the tightrope act of achieving business objectives in a time of complex IT and regulatory realities. I look at things like market conditions and competitive forces, the internal obstacles to executing on strategy, and unpredictable things like information risks.
This has led me to a career as an enterprise risk practitioner. I got here by first spending a decade in IT, then another in strategic operations initiatives for technology organizations. I've detailed some of the latter in my research and publications.
I enjoy the variety in – and the challenging nature of – the work I do. Employers and clients benefit from improved operational resilience, higher performance realized, and better ability to act on opportunities. I hope my posts to risktopics.com will help others who are navigating the uncertain waters of today's risk-aware business landscape.
