Beyond | IT: Business. Architecture. Technology. Strategy. John Mullinax's blog.
I joined Microsoft in June 2006 as a Platform Strategy Advisor. I approach the intersection of business and technology as a business person first, and a technologist second. This blog is a place to share my passion for how technology can enable business and IT strategy, and how businesses can use technology to enable people to achieve the results that really matter in their lives.
In years past, I've held a variety of strategic technical and business roles at Ford Motor Company. Prior to joining Ford in 2000, I was a public sector consultant focused on preventing the type of election debacle that later happened in Florida in 2000. Before that, I served as Director of Elections for Douglas County, Washington, USA, where we conducted the first all mail-in ballot federal election in the United States.
Beyond strategy and technology in general, other related passions include systems thinking, continuous learning, global business, and innovation.
