Ronnie’s strong project management and process improvement background drives him to see opportunities, not limitations. He’s highly skilled at assessing software systems and processes and using these learnings to deliver real, measurable change. Each of his engagements begins with an exchange of information and ideas; he wants to know what success means to those sitting in front of him as well as what’s keeping them from achieving their goals.
“By optimizing and automating business process, technology allows organizations to enhance and better meet their strategic needs.” -Ronnie Kurlander, Senior IT Advisor
He’s applied these critical skills throughout his career, including roles as Director of IT and the Enterprise Program Management office at T. Rowe Price, Program Manager for AAI Corporation and Supply Chain and Value Stream Manager for Textron. He’s achieved numerous milestones in the public and private sector, including running programs with a combined revenue of $80 million; reducing lead time for delivery of a large product by several months; developing and designing processes to manage capacity, demand and supply; and delivering process improvement across manufacturing and transactional/service organizations.
Ronnie also shares his knowledge, guidance and leadership in the classroom and with nonprofit organizations. He’s taught Project Management and Project Quality/Six Sigma courses for Towson University, spoken on IT operations, management and process improvement at Towson and at Loyola University and continues to mentor students at both schools. He’s also shared his IT and business expertise with SCORE, the Fuel Fund of Maryland, and as a board member with Maryland New Directions.
In his downtime, Ronnie enjoys reading, listening to music and spending time with his family.
