Rikki Davis

Rikki Davis is a distinguished professional in the field of Change and Configuration Management, currently serving as the Head of Configuration and Data Management at Ultra Sonar Systems. Rikki's career journey took an unexpected turn when they volunteered to assist a struggling department with digitizing technical debt. Excelling in this task and finding a passion for the work, Rikki continued to contribute to the department's various tasks, ultimately leading to a dedicated role in Configuration Management.

In the pursuit of enhancing their knowledge and skills, Rikki delved into internal courses and extensive reading on configuration and change management. The pivotal moment came when they joined Ultra Sonar Systems, where it was recommended that Rikki undergo a formal course on configuration management. Opting for the course provided by IPX, Rikki gained invaluable insights, expanded their network, and developed a deeper understanding of configuration management principles.

The adoption of CM2 proved to be a catalyst for Rikki's career growth. Embracing a more collaborative approach, Rikki effectively manages different functions and stakeholders while consistently striving for continuous improvement in configuration management practices. A notable aspect of Rikki's professional development is their commitment to mentoring staff within the organization. Enjoying this role immensely, Rikki finds fulfillment in witnessing the success of mentees as they achieve their set goals.
