David McKean is the managing director of IT Leaders Ltd, a leading provider of business strategy and technology leadership development. He has over 15 years' experience of working with businesses all over the world to develop and implement strategy.  Clients include Capita, Barclays, Accenture and AT&T, as well as public sector organisations. The company has pioneered best-in-class processes in several management disciplines and designed software solutions to support them.


In 1994, David joined Cable & Wireless as the programme director for the third GSM license in France. Since that time, he has worked for several international blue chip companies in Russia, France, Asia and Holland, running large strategy development and business change programmes. In Asia in particular, he worked closely with culturally diverse organisations to help them build clear strategies to meet the priorities of different stakeholders. It was this work that led him to recognise the real difficulties that companies have in developing a smart process for strategy that delivers real results.
