After 30 years of solving complex Solution Delivery problems in Online, Telco & other vertical application areas, the value that I add is simple: I give projects MOMENTUM. Major business problems have their own relentless momentum. Solution projects without a matching momentum likely going to fail at one level or another. Show me the business problem and I'll work out how to solve it for you, together with a project structure to deliver the solution in a time-frame that makes sense. Or show me a project without momentum, and I'll accelerate it to give it the momentum it needs. Specialties Complex online, media and unified comms solutions; Large program project planning, resource planning and forecasting; Solutions & Design Integration Methodologies; Program baselining and prioritisation and the establishment of metrics and KPIs in large and complex programs; Multi-organisation, multi-geography, multi-cultural solution integration projects; Ms Office applications integration & automation development; Windows/Delphi software development; Website development in Joomla
