About the Author
Harwell Thrasher is an author, speaker and advisor specializing in the human side of Information Technology. Harwell shows IT and business people how to work together more effectively by taking the magic out of IT. He sometimes describes himself as a “jiggler” because he helps unstick companies and IT organizations who are stuck in their old ways of doing things. Harwell founded MakingITclear, Inc. in 2002 after more than thirty years of experience working in and around IT organizations. In those thirty years Harwell developed and managed systems, created an Internet payroll product, totally revamped the systems and processes for a financial services business, performed technology due diligence for over twenty acquisitions in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Switzerland, and helped acquired companies integrate their IT strategies with the strategy of the acquiring company. A graduate of MIT’s Sloan School of Management, Harwell is an Atlanta native. See Harwell’s web site at www.makingITclear.com for more information and for a free monthly email newsletter.
