Chief Information Officer
When encountering a fresh situation - regardless of the complexity - I find that the simple, logical approach works best. I call it ‘WHaDR’:What; How; Do and Run.
Have you a need for a short or long term injection of expertise, guidance and support? I offer a range of solutions that can be as advisory or hands-on as you need, at any stage of the lifecycle. Whether consultancy, and/or mentoring through to Interim Executive Management.
A health Check of your IT Systems will indicate any areas which may need resolving, and determine the business requirements and method of delivery. I can provide one to one mentoring, or group workshops. Either short-term consultancy or more in-depth interim executive management.
Core Capabilities offered:
“It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”
Consultancy; advice; support; leadership and direction?
Client needs vary; it’s not always a case of engaging either temporary consultants or ‘hand-on’ longer-term Interim Executives.
I can deliver the benefits of both Consultancy and Interim Executive solutions - as well as the advice and support to recruit permanent senior IT executives.
