Hello everyone,

thanks to "the Conquerer" who seems to be busy at the moment I found a job add for my son-in-law who is from the UK and is looking for a job in Germany.
It is a job for a senior architect infrastructure and I'm not sure if I got right what he'd actually do in this job. Maybe my English is not good enough but what does

"Proven track record to drive standardization and simplification in a highly complex and distributed environment and
Capability to simplify complexities for stakeholder communication and managing for impact"

mean in an ITIL environment?

Thanks,

Well if you simplify the complexity of the statement, I think you might find it means practically anything the author wants it to mean.

If that is how they write all their documents you can see why someone might be keen on simplification.

Every part of that statement needs major qualification in order to provide context, or, to put it another way, it is meaningless. Unless you know the code.

In fact it is just the sort of thing I could write.

Hey Diarmid,

thanks though. But good to hear that you don't really get it either.

I mean, I know that this is the typical tone and inconcrete text of a job ad but I thought it's because I lack the technical understanding.

Well, it's definitely not the right job for me anyways. I hope my son-in-law will get a chance to proof that he can make sense out of it Wink
