As organizations look to implement major change initiatives, we may find ourselves with the responsibility of leading the charge in a variety of areas. What happens when we discover we are not the expert? Keith will discuss his experience in leading a major change initiative and how by leveraging project management tools and training, instead of becoming an expert in all areas, he was able to drive change and build new capability in a global organization.
Keith is Director of Product Development and Program Management for Xylem Inc. Xylem is a leading global water technology company headquartered Rye Brook, NY. The Company’s products and services move, treat, analyze, monitor and return water to the environment in public utility, industrial, residential and commercial building services settings.
In his current role, Keith is the enterprise leader for Xylem's Value Optimized Design Platform. A platform focused on improving existing products' performance and profitability through the detailed analysis of customer insights, supply chain modeling, and advanced design analytics.
