Jon brings a passion for strategy discovery, formulation and expression to INSTEP engagements, based on a 25-year career in the software industry. The work can be particularly powerful when it is rooted in a deep and shared sense of organizational purpose, or mission. Jon has led and contributed to teams focused on international expansion, new product development, ecosystem partnerships, digital transformation, corporate portfolio management, and organizational design. He focuses particularly on corporate growth cycles and the transitions necessary to move from start-up to small, medium, and large organizations.
Along with the rest of the INSTEP team, Jon shares an appreciation for the power of carefully chosen, proven frameworks, models, and techniques as a basis for collaboration and strategy formulation. These frameworks provide structure and shared vocabulary for client workshop design and facilitation as well as the creative expression of strategy – which in turn drives product level planning, ecosystem engagement, and customer and shareholder success. He is a guest faculty member at the University of New Haven’s Executive MBA program, lecturing on strategy, technology, finance, and ethics.
