Anne is a cutting edge force in leveraging our human-ness to inspire great performance via the “work of the work” – conversations and relationships within social networks where the work actually gets done.
Adapted from www.willamette.edu/mba/faculty_directory/allen.htm:
Anne has spent her entire career pursuing the questions “How does work really get done?”, “How do people come together to accomplish extraordinary results?”, and “How do we create and sustain healthy performance-based organizations?”
Since 2005, she has helped numerous clients pursue these topics and build effective organizations that thrive in today’s complex global business environment. Before founding her business, Anne spent over 16 years at Hewlett Packard Company in a variety of professional contexts. As the senior director of Knowledge and Intranet Management, she was responsible for companywide knowledge management and collaboration tools. While director in the Strategic Change Office, she led the successful cultural integration of Compaq and HP. As the worldwide business IT manager for Inkjet Printing Systems, she implemented major platforms to run business processes across the Imaging and Printing Group. Her experience in manufacturing management extends into the mining and construction industry.
Anne has presented at regional and global conferences for i2, the Human Resource Planning Society, Oregon State University, the Society for Organizational Learning, the Oregon Chapter of the OD Network, the American Strategic Management Institute, and the Pegasus Systems Thinking Conference.
