My Story

Arsalan Khan

My name is Arsalan Khan and I’m a speaker, advisor and blogger on business and technology issues.

When I was 9 years old, my dad brought a creamish-colored rectangular box, a small TV, a typewriter with no place to put paper in, a small palm-sized device and a bunch of wires to connect all of them to our home. This was our first home computer and I was interested in learning more about it.

My interest in computers grew into a passion in middle school and I decided that I wanted to work in the computer industry. This decision led me to pursue my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Computer Sciences with minors in Business Administration and Mathematics from Bishop’s University in Canada. It was also in Canada that I got my first taste of the computer industry by working as a computer consultant for Bishop’s University.

Over the years, I have had many experiences as an individual contributor and management in the computer industry working with small and large organizations. Along the way, I have also attained Corporate Executive Leadership certification from Georgetown University, a Chief Information Officer (CIO) certification from The George Washington University and a Master’s of Science in Information Systems Technology summa cum laude from The George Washington University.

Underlying Theme

The combination of my educational background and work experiences have given me a few prospectives on what individual and organizations can do to be successful. This has also led me to develop my own framework for assessing organizations. This framework is called SPICE which stands for Strategy, Politics, Innovation, Culture and Execution and it is shown below:

The SPICE Factors

I believe that the fundamental ways organizations can transform themselves is through honest and holistic understanding of: (1) where they are today, (2) where they want to be tomorrow and (3) what steps they need to take to reach the desired objectives. Thus, the underlying theme of my experiences and this blog is Business Transformation. What this means is that,

Khan’s Blog helps individuals and organizations pursue a better version of themselves.
