Name: Robin P. Swan
Title: Deputy Director, Office of Business Transformation
Agency: Department of the Army

Transformative visionary. Swan led development of the Army's first comprehensive business strategy, which outlines how the Army will transform to reduce costs and improve mission effectiveness. His team assessed the technical health and business value of 700 applications, resulting in specific action plans for modernizing, consolidating and eliminating systems. As a result, the Army will save hundreds of millions of dollars. Congress commended the Army for its results and requested that the Defense Department adopt the same approach at the enterprise level. In addition, Swan spearheaded the establishment of the Army's shared-services center for enterprise resource planning and Business Process Reengineering Center of Excellence.
