Principal Consultant (UK)
Tom describes himself as 'Enterprise architect, business-anarchist, confusionist', and that's probably an accurate-enough summary. (Consultant? Insultant? Exultant, perhaps? Description: :-))
Now in his early sixties, he has perhaps too-literally 'careered' around the globe, living in many different countries and working in many different industries. At present he is based in Britain, but that could change at any moment: He goes where he's needed, and where the interest is, really.
Tom says he is an author of sorts, with twenty or so books behind him, in around a dozen languages, over the past thirty years, and an eclectic range of interests.
His 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.
