About this blog
“crossderry” is an Irish term for “across from the woods” or “the crossroads at the woods” — I never can get a single answer from my Kerry kin. It is a real place though, see the Crossderry google map
However, the term fits some of what we’re talking about here — seeing the forest for the trees, taking the correct fork before heading into the woods, making sure you understand what terms mean.
First, the views, ideas, notions, and other synonyms for content are mine, and not my employer’s.
Second, as you might guess, I used to work for SAP and now work for a SAP customer. I’m the global director of a program management group for a global CPG/food company. My group owns PMO, finance, contract, resource, and process management functions for IT.
I used to lead the global project management operations group for SAP and represented SAP to PMI’s Global Corporate Council.
I’ve been part of a pre-IPO logistics software start-up (acquisition being the liquidity event) and co-founded a multimedia start-up (liquidation being the illiquidity event).
I have BAs in Econ and History from George Mason University and an MBA from Babson College.
The rest is in my CV (here).
