Meet Cindy Allen-Stuckey
Cindy Allen-Stuckey, Founder and Chief Strategy Execution Officer of Making Performance Matter, challenges you to answer these questions: You spend many hours developing your business strategy. Why is there a gap when you execute it? What’s keeping it from “coming to life”?
Cindy collaborates with organizations to close the gap between their business strategy and execution by focusing on their only real competitive advantage—their people. She uses the business strategy to define clear, relevant, and understood initiatives for all levels of the organization. Then she develops leadership and people structures and processes necessary to manage execution of the strategy at the individual level. This creates a line of sight with the organization’s strategy, people, operational systems, and metrics.
Cindy is passionate about enabling organizations and individuals to reach their fullest potential. In three global manufacturing organizations, Cindy has partnered with organizations to develop solid strategies to grow their businesses to the next level. She holds masters’ degrees in both management and education, is certified in Human Performance Improvement, is WBENC certified, and is active in various professional organizations.
