Becky is an organizational change, transformation, culture, strategy, and business agility professional with a background in the financial and insurance sectors. She has a passion for breaking down the complex into manageable, understandable and achievable actions. She is data- and key results-driven with expertise in Balanced Scorecard and Objective and Key Results (OKRs') approaches.
Becky has deep experience and expertise in the mix of leadership, strategy, culture, organizational process and infrastructure, and how these are keys to organizational agility and adaptability. She holds certifications in the areas of Lean Six Sigma, Change Management, Enterprise Architecture and Agile, and uses the concepts of all of these to help organizations transform and perform. She applies a combination of strategic, design, analytical and methodical thinking and believes organizational agility is critical for business success. She partners with clients to build the capability to plan strategically and tactically; apply the rigor to identify and align problems to solve complex issues with measurable solutions; and create the agility and infrastructure to help organizations quickly pivot as business, marketplace, and customer needs indicate. She has a passion for teaching and learning from others, be it academic knowledge or past experiences — successes and failures. Becky loves to create tools, frameworks and models by conducting research into what's been done, what's being done and what's not been done or tried, and then testing these with an open mind and with the ability to quickly pivot and learn when things work and when they don’t. She gets her energy by looking at business problems from the outside in.
