Tern Consulting is a global management consultancy specializing in technology and business transformation strategy.

Founder and Principal Melanie Bladow is passionate about driving change, believes that strategy and people skills will differentiate the technology leaders of the future, and she’s ready to show you how!

When she was working as a Chief Information Officer, Melanie saw organizations struggle to capitalize the value of technology. They spend vast sums of money managing ever larger portfolios without reaping its full benefit. This is because most organizations consider technology first and the change it drives nearing the end of an implementation. She developed a methodology that creates lasting transformation through the alignment of people, process and technology at the outset and ties it to a holistic change strategy.
