  1. Non-academic experience
    1. AOL, Director responsible for technology and planning in the Member Services Division – primary responsibilities were developing the strategy for future call center tools, procuring or acting as project manager for internal development of tools, deploying the tools to the call centers.— Major accomplishments developed the support strategies for technical support and customer care systems, acted as the project manager for these two major development activities and subsequent deployment of the systems. Major accomplishment created and staffed the quality assurance department that developed and implemented the procedures and technology required to support the company’s growth from 1.5 million members to 35 million members. 1994-2001. 
    2. Senior Manager in IBM’s Federal Systems Division leading the test and integration of a large, complex command and control software system developed for a multi-billion dollar Defense Department classified project.  Prior to this assignment, he was the Development Manager of the IBM department, which developed approximately 60,000 lines of highly mathematical control software for the project. 1969-1994.

    3. Manager in the World Wide Support Division, LDS Church’s Church and Family History Department.  Developed the organization’s project plan for transitioning from professional product support to a primarily volunteer agent support system.  Evaluated the help desk component (search success) for three candidate customer relationship management system (CRM) vendors and was lead author of an interdepartmental source-selection recommendation. Trained the remaining professional staff in use of the search engine and worked with support-agent team supervisors to accelerate and enhance agent acceptance of the new CRM system. 2003.
