For the love of knowledge.
My aim in publishing these notes is to share some of the observations that I have made throughout my career of over 30 years in ICT management.
My experience is within Banking and Utilities and also consulting, blending Governance, Strategic Sourcing, Portfolio and Project Management, Transformational Change and Risk management in support of the dynamic requirements of the business.
I have a balanced leadership style focusing on the business impact of strategic decision-making and developing relationships with internal and external stakeholders. My key strengths are strategic thinking, problem solving and delivery of integrated, multi-vendor projects across outsourced and internal delivery.
My key professional interests include the implementation of policy and procedures to support business change, management of projects, vendors and stakeholders, and the review of IT investment from a strategic risk and commercial perspective.
As a SFIA accredited consultant I am interested in organizational development and the alignment of the business strategic goals, operating model and organisational structures.
I have a passion for knowledge and discovery which ranges from science and technology to the fundamental principles of management, and have divided these notes into four groups:
- Management covers the fundamental principles of planning, organization and control
- Science covers the basic principles and structures of nature
- Techniques deals with practical advice on the use of common management tools
- Philosophy is where anything else goes, resisting classification yet full of potential
I welcome you and hope you find something useful and interesting in these pages.
