Colin Rudd

I've been wanting to put up a note about Colin Rudd, without it seeming as if there is an ulterior motive.

There isn't...

Those lucky enough to have met and worked with Colin will appreciate that fact that this is a guy who "knows his stuff". Colin has got a pedigree as long as your arm, he's seen it all and deserves the respect that he gets in the industry.

I've met Colin on a few occasions and the guy is a gentleman.

Sharon Taylor in the forward of the ITIL v3 Service Design book said..

Service Design broadens our horizons and helps us to see a larger, more cohesive view of IT Service Management.

Fittingly, Colin as one of the principal authors of this book couldn't have been better placed to contribute to this vision for the new look at Service Design.

Colin has been involved in the industry for over 35 years - I don't know when he'll take a break from it all; but it will be a well earned rest. His son - Steve Rudd (also acknowledged in the Service Design text as a major contributor) is working with Colin. I couldn't think of a better mentor and tutor and Steve I'm sure will be a name to watch out for in the coming years.
