Research

I am a goal-oriented, self-starting innovator, tenaciously pressing forward, leading others with my enthusiasm and commitment. My three most important attributes are:

 

  • a passion for research and learning,

  • an understanding of human motivation, and

  • a mastery of analytics

 

I redline books and articles, adding notes in the margins, and then write reviews and analysis that includes examples from my own experience, or suggestions for the departments that I lead.

IDENTITY ATTACK VECTORS, by Morey J. Haber & Darran Rolls

This book provides one of the best overviews of Identity & Access Management (IAM). It is a must-read for anyone in an IAM department. 

MEASURE WHAT MATTERS, by John Doerr

I reviewed this book to train our department on the Objectives & Key Results (OKRs) methodology, and we used this to implement the Identity Governance Strategic Involvement program.

THE FOUR OBSESSIONS OF AN EXTRAORDINARY EXECUTIVE, by 
Patrick Lencioni

My favorite theme of Lencioni's books is the way he combines structural agility and informal, transparent, guard-down management.
