Curriculum Vita

Jeff Suderman

As CEO of Suderman Solutions, I provide strategic intelligence services to colleges and universities, small and medium size businesses and non-profit organizations. Solutions are built on two pillars: the identification and development of internal organizational strengths and focusing these strengths on strategic external opportunities. Strengthening internal operations is primarily done through strategic & cultural alignment as well as through leadership and team development. Capitalizing on external opportunities occurs through performance based foresight – the alignment of strategic planning and foresight. With over 20 years of experience in higher education administration, I have honed skills in the areas of enrolment management, sales, marketing, coaching, leadership & team development, strategic planning & foresight, public speaking as well as teaching. Educational achievements include an M.A. in Leadership and a Doctorate in Strategic Leadership and Foresight. My work has been published in both popular press and academic journals.
