Welcome!

Hi, I’m Ellen Kirchman.   I’m a leader with a strong background in management, strategic planning, training, process improvement and project management.  I enjoy directing teams that manage complex and highly visible projects.  Management and peers know me as a positive, enthusiastic, collaborative and inspirational manager who effectively manages teams to exceed customer expectations.   

I’m based out of the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.    I’ve lived in this area almost all of my life and know the businesses and culture well.

My passion is to help companies solve business problems with IT solutions.  I serve as a liaison between business and technology, and my work includes understanding the business issue, helping the company reframe the challenge (if necessary), assist in project prioritization, ensure that business and technology align, while providing maximum ROI, and direct IT strategy in support of the business strategy.

My strong project management skills (PMP), business skills (MBA), excellent communication skills and diplomatic nature make me uniquely able to understand internal or external client business objectives and communicate these successfully to the IT organization.

Sincerely,

Ellen Kirchman
