I love languages, particularly my home language which is English.
I am a ‘grammarnatic‘, and can spot a spelling mistake or a badly constructed sentence from a mile away!.
I love converting thoughts and ideas into words, whether they be my own or those of others. Over time, I have learned that excellence in writing is about articulating thoughts and ideas by injecting the enthusiasm and emotion of the originators of those thoughts and ideas into the final written product.
I have included some examples of my work in the page below.

Overcoming ICT Complexity to Effect Business Alignment
he role of the information technology organisation, in relation to business service delivery, is best fulfilled when it filters the business objectives to formulate information technology strategy on the one hand and, on the other, interprets the relationships between those objectives and the delivery mechanisms employed by information technology in optimising ICT service delivery.All things being equal, this objective is predicated upon finding common ground between ICT and the business of the enterprise. In this context there are 2 perennial constraints
- Complexity – the growth in the functionality of information technology ((See ICT Excellence Series – ICT Functionality Management)) which leaves in its wake an ever-increasing strain on systems and business management resources and the cost of maintaining those systems; not to mention the security implications it precipitates
- Alignment – the incessant growth of ICT systems, coupled with its rapacious assault on the organisational norms of the organisation, continuously precipitates a disconnect between the quest to keep abreast of technology, the strategic objectives of the enterprise and the cost of maintaining those systems
There is relentlessness about ICT functionality. It courses through the organisation without let or hindrance, assuaging the thirst of the business process functions with an abundance of functionality; sometimes in floods, sometimes in trickles, but never letting up. It has gouged its way through that organisation, disturbing its management banks and replacing the business ecosystem with an ICT driven ecosystem: forcing the enterprise to acknowledge its necessity, seductively at first, but culminating in the imposition of its will on the very being of the organisation.
The enterprise has responded by embracing various technology driven initiatives; adopting technology functionality to resolve management problems, as opposed to adapting ICT functionality to realise strategic alignment.
The enterprise response is governed by a single imperative – the delivery of information to facilitate the business functions in terms of strategic objectives. This facilitation relies on the enabling characteristics of ICT, and it is perfected by harnessing the functionality of ICT.
Enterprise Architecture – A Laymans’ Perspective
nterprise Architecture is the answer to a question that has occupied business strategists for many years.Where, and what, is the common ground between information technology and the objectives of the organisation?
Their efforts have been plagued by two major constraints:
• Complexity – the growth in the functionality of information technology which leaves in its wake an ever-increasing strain on systems and business management resources, as well as the cost of maintaining those systems
• Alignment – the rapid growth of ICT systems has precipitated a disconnect between the quest to keep abreast of technology and the strategic objectives of the enterprise
A View on Worldviews
worldview is the set of beliefs about fundamental aspects of Reality that ground and influence all one’s perceiving, thinking, knowing, and doing
Why Consider A Worldview
Because we all have one? Could considering another’s worldview be the cornerstone to tolerance? Listening to ‘listen’ as opposed to preparing a retort or reprimand?
Without delving into the depths of anthropology or philosophy, a layman’s definition of a worldview may be articulated as “as one’s philosophy, philosophy of life, mindset, outlook on life, formula for life, ideology, faith, or even religion”.
