"Bridging the Gap between Business and Technology - Strategy planning, Execution, Marketing, Management & Motivation for Top, Middle and Bottom line results"

Tom Oser, Ph.D., MBA: Consultant and speaker on Strategy, Execution and Leadership. He specializes in bridging the divide that exists between business functions, (but especially the one that exists between technology and almost all other business functions) focusing on solving business problems and executive development challenges across those divides. Common perspectives when dealing with the divides are:

BUSINESS-SIDE PERSPECTIVE: "How do we get the IT group to think business first and the return on the investment in IT?"

TECHNOLOGISTS PERSPECTIVE: "When will the business side to take responsible leadership on this critical investment?"

CEO's PERSPECTIVE: "What's it going to take to get both sides engaged in execution together? - This is my life here!"

Tom's point of view is based upon a pragmatic combination of business experience ranging world class consulting to global clines through "actually working for a living" by leading and executing client-side in corporate finance, technical operations and leading national sales organizations in both service and product industries. Currently, Tom leads a national sales team responsible for over $300 million in sales for a U.S. based manufacturer, and is an adjunct faculty teaching technology management strategy at the graduate level.
