I believe big results don’t necessarily come with a big price tag. I take ownership of the overall work and participate in it. That’s what leading a project really means.
NAPERVILLE, Ill. (PRWEB) October 31, 2018
Lurdez Consulting Group (LCG), a new IT project management firm with a higher purpose of advancing young women in the field of information, was launched in September by entrepreneur and seasoned IT project manager, Jeannette L. Collazo, MSMIS, PMP. Based in Naperville, Illinois, the company solves the complexities of business through on-point, collaborative project management expertise in cybersecurity, infrastructure, storage solutions, data migration and data center transformation and consolidation.
The company bears Collazo’s middle name, Lurdez. Prior to founding LCG, she amassed thousands of project management hours at Fortune 500 companies, shattering the glass ceiling with her knowledge, expertise and ability to successfully leading projects for firms such as Datalink, Nicor Gas, BCBS of Michigan, Lexmark and Deloitte Consulting among many others. She has implemented solutions that have saved more than $1.5 million in IT capital expenditures and technical support and measurably increased help desk and customer support satisfaction through the implementation of Service Level Agreements (SLA’s), Policies and Procedures (P&P), standards, processes and guidelines.
“I believe big results don’t necessarily come with a big price tag. I take ownership of the overall work and participate in it. That’s what leading a project really means,” said Collazo, president and CEO of LCG. “In my work I also support the higher purpose of introducing the field of information technology to young women. Opportunities abound in IT and I want women to enjoy them just as I have.”
Collazo’s past clients praise her IT skills as well as her ability to motivate teams and encourage collaborative progress. “During my time working with Jeannette she was our most requested project manager. I could assign her the most difficult, complex, technical and politically challenging projects and never had to worry,” said Irwin Teodoro, a consulting executive with Datalink. “In the end, businesses grew exponentially because of Jeannette’s work and how she did it.”
Born in Chicago, Collazo is of Puerto Rican descent and was raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. She is bilingual and an author and contributor to the Today’s Inspired Latina book series (2nd Place International Latino book award in the most inspiring book category), which offers stories of Latina women who have overcome adversity to achieve success. To raise awareness of her cause, she is a speaker on topics of overcoming adversity, spirituality, Latina empowerment, women in tech and IT, and advice for young graduates. Collazo holds a bachelor’s degree in MIS and marketing from the University of Puerto Rico and a master’s degree in management and information systems (MSMIS) from North Central College.
