William Allen Kennedy is a businessman who presently serves as president and chief executive officer of Kennedy Technical Consulting Services, LLC, located in Arlington, Virginia. William Allen Kennedy formerly spent 15 years with Raytheon Technical Services Company. In his free time, Bill Kennedy, a long-time Arlington resident, remains active and engages in numerous outdoor activities. William A. Kennedy particularly enjoys competing in triathlons, but also enjoys hiking, backpacking, kayaking and playing basketball. Training for a triathlon is extremely important, as participants submit their bodies to intense and varied activities in a relatively short period of time. In order to train properly, however, individuals must familiarize themselves with the rules associated with each leg of the race. Beginning with swimming, triathletes are allowed to use any stroke but freestyle is the preferred swim stroke. Participants may wear swim goggles but the floatation devices or swim aids are not permitted. As athletes transition to the bike riding portion of the race—and these rules should be kept in mind for the second transition as well—they must make sure to leave clothes and equipment in the designated areas and do their best to keep out of the way of other athletes. During the first transition specifically, bikes may not be mounted until helmets are securely in place. While riding, athletes are not permitted to draft, though they are able to push, carry, or walk their bikes to the finish line if the bike is damaged. Finally, runners must simply remain upright during the last portion of the triathlon, and walking is accepted.

He recently founded Kennedy Technical Consulting Services, LLC, in Arlington, Virginia, which provides business development consulting and technical support services to both large and small businesses. As an experienced program manager, Bill Kennedy is well-versed in many project planning and business analysis strategies, including SWOT analysis. Designed in the 1960s by business management consultant Albert Humphrey, SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) is a method of business analysis that facilitates decision-making by identifying both internal and external factors of the business environment. A business’ strengths and weaknesses are classified as internal factors and can be identified by determining a company’s unique skills and resources as well as areas for potential improvement. Opportunities and threats are factors that occur outside of the company, such as current trends, laws, competitors, markets, and audiences. When viewed as a whole, a SWOT analysis can help a business focus on the pros and cons of a decision based on the internal environment and outside forces affecting the company.
