Russell W. West, Ph.D., Strategy Impact Officer for TMP is a seasoned capacity builder, strategy consultant and organizational analyst. His background combines 25+ years of leadership education, extensive university program leadership, teaching and publishing. Always seeking to promote the strengths of local leaders and communities, he has worked with public-, private- and social-sector leaders from more than 70 countries, helping them achieve increased mission alignment. His primary focus is helping organizations implement strategies in a sustained way that aligns leadership, people, processes, structure and resources. Russell joins Trash Mountain Project, after six years of being one of its advisors, because he knows that if TMP is going to fulfill its potential, good mission must be matched by good methods and measurement, and that these must be accomplished in spiritually sensitive ways that affirm the dignity and assets of the families who live in these vulnerable communities.
