He has served CEOs as the principal process architect in over 30 CEO-led corporate transformations. A summary of the major insights from his experiences, titled “Accelerating Corporate Transformations,” appeared as a feature article in the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of the Harvard Business Review, and was recently reprinted in the “Reinvention” issue of HBR OnPoint.Over the past two decades Bob has pioneered an Accelerated Corporate Transformation (ACT) methodology at such leading companies as Apple, Black & Veatch, Florida Rock, General Electric, IBM Global Services, National Semiconductor, Office Depot, PGA Tour, Rockwell International, Southern Company and Symantec, as well as a number of emerging high-tech companies.
