Vice president, consulting services
Sphera          

Carrie Young has been helping companies with business process transformation and insights for more than 20 years. Young started her career with a chemical engineering degree, specializing in environmental studies, from the University of Kansas. With a strong desire for problem solving and optimization, it was a logical next step to become a process engineer in the chemical manufacturing industry. She was trained as a Six Sigma Black Belt and learned about the real data challenges that existed with antiquated measurement systems and the lack of mature database technology. Using her PMI PMP certification as a framework, she employed her rigorous understanding of what it takes to institute organizational change, the experience to run a project management team and create the controls to monitor progress, and the business acumen to set a vision for the team. Coming full circle, Young now leads a group of experts with a focus on analytics, using math to solve business problems, where much of the data comes from the mature solutions that Sphera provides.
