Executive & Stakeholder Relationships

"Stephen's proficiency in stakeholder management has been a pleasure to witness." - Tas Police Project Manager

Management Workshops

I run workshops at senior management level, with CEOs, SOOs, CFOs and boards as required

Business Process Architecture

I have years of experience with business architecture, including business processes, organisation etc.

Business Process Automation

I have a long history of BPM platforms going back to Intalio n|3 in 2004, RunMyProcess, Barium, Flowingly and Flokzu.

Application Architecture

I am well versed in Application Architecture, with thirty years experience

Integration Design

I have successfully facilitated workshops for multiple divisions, sub-companies and a pelthora of systems, with well over a dozen people in them


Providing Great Value

Expert Knowledge

My expert knowledge extends to BPMN and UML, Enterprise Business Architecture concepts and tooling, CRM, Service Management design, business process design and automation, semantic layers, service bus requirements, integration design and more


I help bring clarity to your initiatives. Experience from helping significant organisations gives me a head-full of business patterns that can be very useful!


From clarity comes direction. I can help you sort through risks and problems, goals and opportunities and accordingly prioritise initiatives to help you achieve strategic goals


My approach is agile and pragmatic. I help you focus on low-hanging fruit and processes that deliver the most benefit

Speed of Delivery

I help rapid delivery of benefit in a practical sense: defining and socialising processes, implementing process automation. integration of systems and getting dashboards going to give you insight into process performance.


International standards can be important to organisations. Adoption of good standards aids communication, interoperability and application lifecycle replacements.




How I engage with you on a win-win basis to realise your goals


Engagements are about change
* change is about people
* people are about relationships and trust
* I put effort into the people side of change to smooth the way to success



Your Needs, Your Plans



I look at Cultural Alignment, Service Alignment, Skill Requirements, Terms of Engagement and more to ensure what you envision, we can deliver together



Delivering value is front of my mind. through Discovery, Envision, Design and Delivery phases and into ongoing care



Management Workshops

I work with senior management teams to help prioritise work according to strategic alignment, benefit, investment, risk, external dependencies and other criteria.

I enjoy workshops with executive teams and clients find I help bring clarity and direction.

Stakeholder Management

Being able to relate to, understand and negotiate with stakeholders is vital to programs and projects. Understanding the responsibilities they have, where they fit in the organisation and how they communicate is vital to operating amongst stakeholders.


I am comfortable and productive with interviews. Interview subjects say they are comfortable talking to me, and I have repeatedly been told I am very good at interviewing staff.


Methods, principles and tools are important to good consulting. Knowing how to approach a customer's need, how to analyse and document it, and how to provide value for change management are all things that occupy my mind


Having a basic grasp of various frameworks informs thinking. Being able to appreciate different ways of looking at things, classifying data and linking framework artifacts together provides a great boost to the usefulness of information



I am expert with BPMN 2.0. I commented on the first draft from a holistic modelling perspective. I use UML for organisation, information, event, location and other models if the tool I am using does not have in-built capabilities. I also have exposure to DMN and CMN.



Business Improvement Initiatives

You need positive change? I help with
* Management Team workshops
* Problem and Opportunity modelling
* Developing a Program Of Work
* Writing Project Charters
* Running projects

Digital Transformation Programs

Digital Transform,ation is often IT driven and results are very varied. I help you drive digital transformation from the business end to maximise business value

Workflow automation

Workflow Automation involves automating the human oriented tasks in a process so they all work in sequence with handovers governed by a process engine. I have lots of experience with design and automation.
NOTE: Workflow Automation is a sub-set of Business Process Automation

Service Bus Design

A Service Bus essentially creates a layer between your human task flow and your applications, giving you the chance to standardise formats and ensure integration works well.
NOTE: On smaller scale projects, workflow automation, service bus and integration may be achieved using a Business Process Engine that has workflow, semantic and integration capability.

Integration Design

Knowing how to run workshops involving multiple companies, departments, locations, teams or software platforms is vital in achieving sound integrations. I know this territory well and provide visual models backed by business process design and application architecture.

CRM implementations

Implementing a CRM without sufficient thought about business processes is a recipe for disaster!
Both Product and Service oriented organisations really need the to know and manage their customers! I have been involved in large and small scale CRM design and implementations and can help you get it right.

Data Warehousing

Data Warehousing without good business modelling will give you confusion and limited ability to leverage the data you collect. I help you model your business data to create a Semantic Model that governs processes, integrations and data warehousing.
You will be delighted at how easy Data Warehousing is if these things are done!

Business Intelligence Dashboards

Many B.I. Dashboards use bad data! Design really needs to come from good business modeling! There's a need to get your business model right and then drive data standardisation through all the layers.
I can help revolutionise your operations!
