Business Analysis, IT Strategy Planning and Project Management by Mark Willis.

I am a seasoned IT Professional that understands core business processes and how software, data and user experience all relate. I like to be responsible for finding innovative solutions and making an impact on a business.

I prefer to take a 'hands-on' approach and be involved in the full life cycle of a project, having the autonomy to deliver, improve processes and make recommendations where necessary to ensure effective use of IT solutions and achieve an appropriate ROI.

I have a deep appreciation of databases and data usage, in particular Microsoft SQL, Access and Excel as well as enterprise ERP solutions. As a successful IT Manager / Business Analyst I can demonstrate qualifying experience in a wide range of areas.
