Iain Sanders's Experience:

I have been a project / programme manager for R&D projects, business improvement, strategic planning and delivery since 1995.

I have experience with and access to the TRIZ Innovation Workbench program of Ideation International.

I specialize in strategic planning and delivery for profitable growth, change and business development.

Strategy execution for Benefits Realization is one of my key strengths. Here is a summary of my approach:

1. Review Strategy Priorities to deliver.
2. Develop Value Propositions to achieve these priorities.
3. Design Business Models to deliver these Value Propositions.
4. Map the Value Delivery pathways to realize these objectives.
5. Define the Delivery Vehicles (DVs) used on these pathways:

DVs = solutions, systems, services, products, processes, projects, and data.

6. Prototype and test your Delivery Vehicles.
7. Revise and optimize your Delivery Vehicles.
8. Plan delivery of Delivery Vehicle benefits.
9. Manage delivery of Delivery Vehicle benefits.
10. Review Strategy Benefits realized.

My interests include: change governance, information assurance, innovation process management, business valuation and investment, executive coaching and mastermind groups, systems engineering, whole systems thinking, and next generation infrastructure design for essential services.
