EULER Trade Indemnity

Consultant Project Manager, 1997 to June 1999

Developed a Technical Strategy for Euler International. A new type of business for the Euler Group, International, was experiencing system problems after its start up. I addressed a combination of short-term problems with tactical system in the UK and mainframe system based in Brussels. I developed a medium term strategy intended to improve systems flexibility and minimising dependence on remote legacy systems.

Managed the Rollout of Windows NT within the UK: Ed Took over technical management of the Rollout after it had come to a halt through technical and business problems. Reorganised and transformed the team into an effective unit. We redesigned the desktop and user environment, introduced proper change management, reorganised application testing and installation procedures then completed the rollout to the Head Office and Branches.

Initiation of International Systems Project. I represented Euler TI in the initiation phase of a three nation project, lead by the French, to replace all EULER systems with a single, common one. Worked closely with the core team members to form a structure, define objectives and plan the early stages of the project.

Managed the implemented the project office in Brussels, setting up infrastructure for the project team.

Business Analysis and Project Management: Turned around a failing Recoveries Workflow project by resolving problems with a third party supplier, re-defining the requirements then negotiating and managing a fixed price package of corrective work.
