Charles’ knowledge and experience in EA resulted in him being able to quickly and accurately document the current state of Knysna Municipality’s Enterprise Architecture. Charles used various sources of information (meetings, existing documentation, legislation) to produce an Enterprise Architecture that was easy to understand and translate for business users. Charles’ ability to translate the municipality’s business into an EA resulted in the project getting significant buy in from business users which in turn resulted in expediting additional information gathering sessions.
Charles was able to work efficiently and effectively and managed to produce a deliverable that was beyond expectation at a time when the municipality was experiencing significant disruption due to the Knysna Fire Disaster. Charles delivered all deliverable within agreed timelines and could be relied on to be prepared for all interactions with key stakeholders including last minute on the spot presentations to steering committees.Graeme – CIO from Knysna Municipality – South Africa

Great guy.Graham – CEO of Inspired – South Africa

I worked closely with Charles through our Enterprise Delivery Optimisation Program while at Visa.
His ability to apply structured thinking to a highly complex, multi-layered, spaghetti like organisational situation was simply amazing. His persistence to unravel to the n’th degree each element of the Business, Technology Stack, Process mix, People or Organisational building blocks he found and to carefully map their inter-relationships provided insights into our organisation that were both powerful and actionable and sometime surprising. Charles is an absolute weapon in the EA space.Owen – Delivery Optimisation Manager Visa – South Africa
