We’re just approaching the end of our financial year here at MWD Advisors, and it looks like our business will be somewhere north of 20% up on last year’s. We’re still a small business, but we’re finding that our continued tight focus (on three research and advice programs: Analytics & Information Management, BPM and Collaboration), combined with our desire to get under the skin of practical challenges associated with delivering business value from technology, is enabling us to maintain a strong reputation and deliver consistently great service for our clients. That translates into growing demand, and we’ve found that the growth is continuing – driven by things like our new Personal Subscriptions – even in these uncertain times.
Against this backdrop we’ve been looking to expand our team for quite some months. We’ve been turning away some business over the past year, and that hurts!
So I’m delighted to announce that Mark McGregor has joined our team. For those of you that have been active in BPM for some time, you’ll undoubtedly be familiar with Mark’s work; he was one of the founding members of the BPMG, and one of the original authors of the 8 Omega framework for process improvement. He’s got a frankly terrifyingly strong grasp of practical concerns in the area of organisational change management, having delivered training to hundreds of practitioners around the world and he’s also consulted widely – both by practitioners and product vendors.
Mark’s been busy already: see his first blog post here! In the short term, he’ll be focusing on two areas in particular for our BPM research program: first, the ‘people side of change’; and second, the use and evolving technology of modeling tools.
We’re really excited to have Mark join us, because his skills and experience complement ours very well: having him on board is going to enable us to serve more customers, but also serve customers in new ways – and that’s a beautiful thing. Our next financial year is going to be a cracker!
