About Rob Speck and “Process Maximus”
I am the co-founder and CEO of Quogent, a software services group that builds process automation software solutions for enterprises.
I was most recently the VP and unit lead for SourceCode Technology Holding’s global consulting organization. SourceCode’s K2 product suite helps enterprises automate business processes and integrate information for the execution of workflow activities. Leading the consulting organization, I managed a transformation effort that improved alignment of client requirements and broadened service capabilities with teams in Europe, South Africa, Asia and throughout the US.
Prior to my role with K2, I was vice-president and principal consultant for Nimbus Partners; now a TIBCO company. I have spent over twenty years working with global organizations to improve operational process management, risk management, compliance and corporate governance. After earning an MBA from Clark University in 1988, I served as a financial analyst for General Electric Capital Corp and then an investment analyst for a high-yield bond portfolio within Osterricheshe Landerbank. From 1992-1997, I developed a business unit within Lotus Development’s OneSource division and then ran a software solution development unit for Cambridge Technology Partners from 1997-2001.
I founded AVIVA Consulting Group to provide services on the Microsoft platform supporting process automation and collaboration. After developing a GRC product and client base, I sold the assets to Neudesic. Over the past decade, I have worked with organizations such as General Atomics, Chevron, Nestle, Novartis, Pfizer and others, supporting large transformation efforts, quality initiatives and compliance requirements. My primary focus has been within highly regulated industries; helping them deal with regulatory challenges and quality initiatives.
I am passionate about the evolution of software technology and its ability to impact organization’s management of risk and compliance objectives. This blog represents thoughts on these topics including ideas from actual clients who work diligently every day to improve how their businesses run.
