Tim Rodgers, Ph.D.
Companies deliver value through their own internal operations, they also rely on an extended network of suppliers, service providers, and sales channels. All of these partners have an important role in assuring quality and reliability, and without their active cooperation it’s impossible to consistently meet your customers’ requirements.
I’m a director-level global operations manager experienced in leading hardware engineering and new product development teams, project & program management (PMP certification), quality engineering (Six Sigma Black Belt), and international manufacturing and supply chain management for consumer electronics and industrial markets.
I graduated from the University of California (Santa Cruz) with a Ph.D. in chemistry, and later received an MBA from the University of Oregon. I’ve been employed by large aerospace and consumer electronics companies, and spent two years in China while working for the world’s largest contract manufacturer. I’m currently teaching supply chain management and operations management at the University of Colorado (Boulder) and Colorado State University.
