Cable & Wireless was awarded a low power GSM License by Ofcom in the UK. The role required a Lead Architect to manage the design and build of a complete new platform allowing Cable & Wireless to launch a new Fixed Mobile Convergence product. The requirement started with a high level enterprise architecture model, mapping business requirements against functional deployments. This drove out the business context diagrams leading onto clear application requirements which had a direct traceable path back to the architectural framework. Every person involved within the development was able to clearly see how the part they were working on fitted within the plan.  This helped the project teams to better manage their own deliverables on time.
The service launched on time and on budget. During the time I spent with Cable & Wireless I was able to help pass on knowledge about management processes when running a complete independent platform. Cable & Wireless is a large well established company. Managing the many internal stake holders’ expectations was achieved through the use of clear precise documentation and well documented requirements. Driving out ambiguity within any area of development helped speed the project along to the benefit of the whole business
