History

After working with IBM and several of Britain’s most dynamic organisations, I set up my own company which supplied systems and advice to blue chip companies and household names all over Britain.
 
Since 2003 I have been an independent consultant concentrating on the human, organisational and practical issues involved in implementing new systems.
 
 
Key Attributes
  • I relate to staff at all levels
  • I don’t use “technospeak”
  • I understand the pressures you are under
  • I persist in seeking appropriate solutions, not stopping until the problem is solved satisfactorily


Philosophy

Many people feel blinded by Information Technology (I.T.) and its jargon.  I consider that a major part of my role is to explain I.T. so that those involved can truly understand its implications and make fully informed decisions.

I believe that people have to be engaged from the very beginning of any new project which affects them.  Experience has shown that staff need to feel involved and consulted otherwise a change can be rejected even when it might otherwise be seen as beneficial.

Planning and dealing with a systems implementation can be daunting for all involved, and especially confusing for non-technical people.  As a result extra attention has to be given to ensure that all those affected are involved at an appropriate level.

I believe that, in order to ensure a successful outcome, management need to understand the implications of any systems changes.  This is best developed by a series of dialogues which allow them space to think more deeply around the subject.  Once the project aims are fully clarified they must then be shared with all those impacted by the change.
