Stacey Boyle, Ph.D.

Stacey has led global consulting and research departments for over 20 years, during which she has built a reputation for groundbreaking work connecting investments in people to critical business outcomes. Today she runs two consulting firms that help some of the world's best companies and non-profits answer their pressing business questions about investments in people. Stacey is President and Chief People Planner for Smarter People Planning, LLC, and Chief Assayer for Assay|Edu, LLC

After earning a Ph.D. in Applied Behavioral Research & Evaluation and a NASA fellowship from Oklahoma State University, Stacey parlayed her academic know-how into the real world of business. She was pitching advanced analytics to human resources practitioners before Big Data was cool, and she is proud to say she has transformed herself from a Type-A, tactical academician to a calmer Type-A, strategic business leader. She has advised innumerable strategic leaders from Fortune 500, government, non-profits, and the education space as a long-time consultant. Through designing, executing, and collaborating on a number of strategic business awards programs, she has incredible insights into what the best leaders are doing and how they achieve winning results.

Stacey lives a fitness-focused life in the Chicagoland area and thrives on grooming her own future strategic leader—her daughter.
