Interview with Chris Winter

Chris Winter is an independent consultant specialising in applying engineering methods to major complex IT projects. Prior to 2009 he worked for IBM for 31 years and reached the pinnacle of the technical career path as an IBM Fellow, noted especially for his development of IBM’s performance engineering disciplines.

He says that he thinks his unique selling point (USP) in his career has been being able to understand technology. He adds: “Even today, the new technologies, that are not always new, simply recycled and renamed.  I’ve always managed to be able to get a technical insight.”

Today he welcomed our interviewer Tom Abram to his home in Devon where he spoke about his life and career.
