My New Status Quo

This should probably have been published on my first day but it got stuck somewhere, somehow. Anyway, just a brief history of why this site came to be…

This will be my 20th year as a consultant and I decided that once again it was time for a change. I’ve been through a lot of them but this somehow feels a bit bigger than most … and yet, it probably isn’t. Over the years I’ve been employed by five different consultant companies and somehow being employed has felt like a security blanket but intellectually I know that the security is a delusion. I’ve seen the best intentions crumble during downturns and people getting sacked when the assignments fail to come through. So after 20 years I’ve decided to leave my teddy bear behind and start my own business.

It feels like a huge leap but at the same time it will really just be more of the same. I’ll keep doing what I love to do and what I’m good at; helping organizations improve their ways of delivering software and caring for the people doing the work.

Running my own business means that I should probably have a web page but since the business is just me, the one thing that came to mind to put here was my blogging, whenever that happens. This means that my old blog (My mind’s discourse) probably will start gathering dust from now on. I thought that I might put the occasional personal story there but then I realized that keeping my business and my personal ideas separate doesn’t make a lot of sense anymore. Whatever I say and think doesn’t only represent me now, it’s also representative of my company spryWISE. My values are important to me and they will be a part of my professional life as well.

Whether you need help in your organization, want to meet up for a social lunch or cup of coffee or just ask me a question, feel free to give me a call or send me a message. I’d love to hear from you!
