Alec Sharp

Alec Sharp, a senior consultant with Clariteq Systems Consulting, has deep expertise in a rare combination of fields – business-oriented data modelling, business process analysis and redesign, and business analysis and requirements specification. Increasingly, his work involves facilitation, organisational change, and project recovery. His 40 years of hands-on consulting experience, practical approaches, and global reputation in model-driven methods have made him a sought-after resource around the world.

Alec is also a popular speaker at conferences related to Business Process Management, Business Analysis, and Data Management, mixing content and insight with irreverence and humour.

Alec literally wrote the book on business process modelling, “Workflow Modelling: Tools for Process Improvement and Application Development, Second Edition.”  Popular with process improvement specialists, business analysts, consultants, and business professionals, it is consistently a top-selling title on business process modelling, analysis, and design, and is widely used as an MBA textbook.

He was awarded DAMA’s Professional Achievement Award, a global award given to one professional a year for contributions to the Data Management profession.

Alec’s educational workshops are conducted virtually and in-person at many well-known organisations. These include Business-Oriented Data Modelling, Business-Oriented Data Modelling – Masterclass, Working With Business Processes, Advanced Business Process Techniques, and Model-Driven Business Analysis Techniques.
