Dave Snowden is currently working on the application of natural sciences to social systems thought the development of a range of methods and the SenseMaker software suite. He started work in an NGO post University and then moved onto HR & Training in the late 70s when he started work with computers. That together with a diploma from The Certified Accountants got him a job as Development Accountant in the same firm where he headed up the Treasury function and was responsible for computerisation. An MBA in financial management saw him move into consultancy and software designing decision support systems in what became Data Sciences where he became a General Manager (creating MURCO) and the Corporate Business Development Manager where he created the Genus Programme (and integration of JAD/RAD, Object Orientation and Legacy Management) which was one of the main components in the turn around of that company.
