  3. Work with cross-functional teams to identify Business improvement levers. Team with leaders in engineering, development, technology, and sales to develop initiatives to improve product quality, cost, or speed-to-deliver. Synthesize and summarize tradeoffs of each initiative for the executive team to support effective and efficient decision making.
  4. Execute CEO, COO, and Board-directed strategic initiatives: The Operations Strategy Team is where executives go for questions that span multiple corporate functions, need answers quickly, and have a significant impact on business performance.
