I am IT veteran of 25+ years, business strategist, Microsoft MVP, sensemaker, author and the director of Seven Sigma Business Solutions. Based in Perth, Western Australia. I specialise in sensemaking, design thinking, strategic planning, complex decision making, digital transformation, IT governance, and all facets of Office365/SharePoint delivery. I have various nerdy certifications so can also mix it with the tech side of things…
I’ve written two acclaimed books, with both award finalists or winners. “The Heretics Guide to Best Practices: The Reality of Managing Complex Problems in Organisations” and more recently “The Heretics Guide to Management: The Art of Harnessing Ambiguity”.
I’ve also run a startup from idea to product delivery and everything in between. Glyma was a WAITTA innovation award finalist and is now open source and deployed in various places.
I’m one of four certified Dialogue Mappers worldwide and the only authorised trainer outside of the USA. Dialogue Mapping is a radically inclusive technique to help groups deal with wicked problems.
More recently I have developed significant skills in Microsoft PowerApps, Flow, Cognitive Services and Azure Functions. This has culminated in running PowerApps hackathons in Australia and New Zealand.
