'IT projects demand rigorous discipline in terms of project controls to ensure that things do not get out of hand. However, before this comes the effective allocation of risk to the various parties to the contract; IT projects often fail or significantly exceed budget because of a contract that mis-allocates risk when the unforeseen inevitably arises.'

David's track record of successfully delivering IT & technology projects includes:

  • Definition and implementation of a significant SAP-led business transformation programme for work, asset management and information at Thames Water

  • Managing the definition and delivery of a broad range of IT and change projects through Thames Waters’ IS Operations Programme

  • Delivering a performance management framework (systems and processes) to drive improvement in customer satisfaction for one of Reuters' key financial service products

  • Managing Philips Semiconductors’ programme to implement new systems and processes for the effective allocation of silicon wafer production to market demands

  • Transforming BMJ’s approach to risk management across the product and technology delivery lifecycle

  • Testing and commissioning of a new automated baggage system at Denver International Airport.
