System decisions are costly.
It takes time and money to select a system. You might engage developer to help you build and migrate to it. Support costs you more time as well as more money. Then, what if you don't like it and need to migrate away?
It can be difficult to make sense of your priorities. It can be difficult to document your wants. Sometimes things can get lost in translation.
As a business leader, how can you be more effective and get more value from your systems spend?
My name is Richard Bown. I show you how to map what you have now, identify your needs, and help you get what you want.
Learn to reduce overheads, become more agile as a business and make digital change a part of your every day process. Let me show you how to reduce risk and increase return-on-investment.
Ultimately, let's build a technology strategy.
I'm an ex-developer with 25 years of experience in building and integrating software engineering for finance departments in banks & insurers, telecoms companies, energy companies, retailers, software product companies and professional membership organisations.
While I've built many software systems and been involved in 100s of projects, I really enjoy working with professionals who don't always have the time to devote to systems matters.
I encourage you to really get to know your own systems. To build confidence, I show you techniques that allow you to work effectively with vendors, developers and other IT suppliers. I will teach you how to stop just buying and start designing your own systems.
I have many free resources to help you get started. I also have a mailing list which will guide you through the basics of owning your systems.
My FREE 6-day email course will help you make a start your journey to taking better control of your systems and defining your organisation's technology strategy
