    More About Me

    I'm the catalyst between business and IT. 

     I’ve demonstrated competencies in adapting to whatever project task is in front of me, analysing all potential possibilities including those that others miss, and ensure that solutions both meet business requirements using traceability matrices, and also deliver proven value or reducing cost to the business using cost/benefit analysis.

    Core competencies include:

    • Project management of small teams

    • A focus on building a relationship with the customer

    • Communication skills across senior and junior levels of the business

    • The ability to analyse a problem from all perspectives and come up with previously undiscovered solutions

    I'm an ENTP personality (http://typelogic.com/entp.html), so if you're after someone innovative, I can deliver!

    My Background

    As a Business Systems Analyst with five years’ experience in retail, education, central government, and local government in New Zealand, I'm fanatical about the business, their requirements, and making sure the projects I work on deliver measurable value or reduce cost. I do this by being a personable communicator, able to understand and elicit complete requirements from the business, and articulate this into clear and concise business and technical requirements.

    People Describe Me As

    “Waylon has a brilliant mind – his thinking is fast, thorough and not quite what one expects. He creates opportunities by coming up with new concepts and directions and then applies them in models or test examples to prove the concept works. He is innovative in that the way he considers an issue or question is usually from every side. In doing this 360 degree examination, Waylon frequently sees more than can be discovered with traditional problem analysis. He is proactive – whether it is something he has identified himself or from a hint, he will chase it down and test it. He likes to be busy – if immediate work is not pressing, he does research and looks for ways to improve technology and processes. A joy to work with.”

    I'm Proud Of

    My ability to solve problems that others find impossible to solve. If I could have a catchphrase, it would be "why", as in "why do we do things this way?" and "why don't we improve this process?".

    The Way I Work

    I do a vast amount of research, and analyse a problem from all sides. I bounce ideas off others, and like to elicit ideas and at times play the devil's advocate, all to better understand the problem and to come up with a solution.

    I Specialise In

    Problem solving and consulting, especially in the area of enterprise technology.

    I Would Be Perfect For

    Any area that requires a highly innovative and analytical thinker to discover new solutions to impossible technological and process-based problems.

    My Attributes

    Analytical, Good Leader, Co-Operative, Creative, Intelligent
