Business-novel – chapters 13-18

And the next instalment of the business-novel that I’m working on at present. Previous posts have covered Chapters 00-03, Chapters 04-08 and Chapters 09-12. Most of the chapters in this instalment are just ‘mood-setting’ pieces that might well end up on the cutting-room floor in

Business-novel – chapters 04-08

Here’s the next instalment on the business-novel I’m working on at present, as per the previous post. Not much enterprise-architecture in this part of the story – it’s mainly introducing some of the other key characters and context for the

Two goodbyes
