Peace of Mind.

Allen Look speaking at Evanta NYC CIO Executive Conference

Allen Look

Executive Consultant  |  Public Speaker - Charlotte

I provide lasting peace of mind to peer executives by aligning IT, not with organizational strategy, but with the underlying operating model.  By showcasing IT's contribution in the familiar and non-technical terms of business outcomes, and by demonstrating that the right amount is being invested in IT and on the right things.

Let's talk about who you are as an organization, how you win in your markets, and the critical business capabilities you need to build.

You have enough to worry about.



Crafting easy-to-understand stories about your business' success that employees will internalize and execute against.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Performing all aspects of IT due diligence, integration planning, synergy identification, and value capture.

Cyber Security

Security and privacy-related services from board presentations, chartering, and framework-, vendor-, and tool- selection.

Service Delivery

ITIL/ITSM service delivery planning, policy-making, governance, and process mapping.

Project Management

Project and portfolio management, enterprise architecture and tools identification.


Retooling culture, linking IT contributions to strategy, aligning structures, defining processes and metrics.
