About

I’m a Management Consultant and Enterprise Architect with over 30 years of experience re-engineering functions and processes for many of the Global 100 corporations such as IBM, Microsoft, and Samsung Electronics Corporation.

I left Microsoft in September after two years of developing White Papers, methodology, and mentoring field Enterprise Architects and Engineers on IT Economics, Portfolio Management, Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery, Governance, and ITSM. Currently I am writing a book on Enterprise Design and Operations tentatively titled Structure in Threes.  I am available for consulting engagements worldwide or direct employment.

Previously I was  bi-coastal having my wife and family in greater Seattle area, while I work in D.C. helping government departments become more efficient and effective in operations.   Much of my career has been on the bleeding edge or further out aspects of technology.   While much of what I’ve proposed or help to design seemed like science fiction, today a lot of it is common place.  My views on the “wired” corporation in the late 70s are manifested or in process in most corporations today.

The next area of research I’ve been focused on is knowledge transfer and capability/performance improvement.   I’ve been through two generational turnovers so far and seen the same issues arise; knowledge lost when my grandfather’s generation retired, knowledge lost when my Dad’s generation retired.  While I’m not likely to retire soon –even through its possible now– I see the same mistakes happening in industry and culturally.  Executives discount the past experience because they want speed and flash, younger generation thinks new solves all problems.

If that was the case our government and budget problems would have been solved instead of repeating the same mistakes but in a different way….

    What exactly does “No part of this book may be used or reproduced in any manner whatsoever without written permission of the author and the publisher.” mean? It cannot be used or quoted in academic papers or research?

      The comment is a hold over from a publisher’s request when I was in process of writing the book. Since posting on my blog instead of publishing refer to “Creative Commons License” with regard to usage and quotations. I’ll be editing out the book draft restrictions in the future so only the creative commons will be noted. Thanks for pointing out the potential confusion
