In my Twitter profile I describe myself as “Enterprise architect, business-anarchist, confusionist”, and that’s probably an accurate-enough summary. (Consultant? Insultant? Exultant, perhaps? )
Now in my early sixties, I’ve perhaps too-literally ‘careered’ around the globe, living in many different countries and working in many different industries. At present I’m based in Britain, but that could change at any moment: I go where I’m needed, and where the interest is, really.
I’m an author of sorts, with twenty or so books behind me, in around a dozen languages, over the past thirty years, and an eclectic range of interests.
There’s also another weblog, Thinking Sidewise, which is published less often than this one, but tends to explore broader-scope themes in business and society.
My professional field is mainly in what’s known as ‘enterprise architecture’, but with an emphasis on strategy and futures, on complexity and sense-making, on relationships between organisation, extended-enterprise and market, and on integrating IT with the rest of the business.
