I was born in Leiden in 1951. My Career in ICT started in 1969 at Leiden University. I was educated in Informatics, Numerical Analysis, Statistics, Signal Theory and Psychology.
In 1977 I started to work as an Operations Research Analist at ABN, a big Dutch Bank.
After a short time I became the Information Manager of the Money Market. I was the Architect of the first Dealingroom System (together with Autophon and Reuters) in the World. In 1991 I became reponsible for the Merger of the IT-departments and Systems of ABN-AMRO. In 1995 I became responsible for Worldwide Re(Search).
After a few years of revalidation after an almost fatal stroke I am becoming 69 years old.
Today I am starting a new company with my old friends that is able to do what almost Nobody is Able to do.
We have the intention to Make the Best for the Lowest Price in the Shortest Time.
The “First Time Right” or “Right First Time” (RFT) Principle is part of the Lean Six Sigma method . Lean Six Sigma is aimed at Preventing Failures.
FiTiRi is a Software / Business / General Engineering Firm that is able to Produce Machines and Structures Managed by Software (and related products (Strategy, Advice, Research, Auditing (testing), Training, etc). According to the FTR-principle.
We are not only Technical Engineers but also Social Engineers with a lot of experience in Change Management.
We are specialized in Analytics.
We are able to built Intelligent (Smart) Information Systems that automatically collect Quantitative (Numbers) and Qualitative (Content, Facts) data and combine them in a Shared (Semantic) Model.
We use Statistical techniques but also tools out of Machine Learning (AI) to find patterns and build software that reacts to these patterns.
We are able to make (High Functionality, ( Many Function Points)) Complex Software) and Simple Software. In the last case our Price a Low.
We are also able to Design and Build Software-Generators based on a (Business-)Domain Model (for instance Healthcare).
Our First Meeting in which we gladly Hear Your Story and Answer your Questions is always For Free. We are prepared to work No Cure No Pay.
To make Contact use the link.
We are also able to Sell the Products we make together with our customers.To do that we are part of big International business Networks.
Our Favorite Approach
As we want o create Value by helping you to create Value we prefer to start by making a
Shared Business Case. To make the case we prefer using the tools of our partner Theodoor van Donge who developed VDML (Value Delivery Modelling Language and a tool VDMBee to use VDML.
The nice thing about VDML is that it is possible to generate BPML (Business Process Modelling Language).
It is possible to generate software out of a BPML model.
It is also possible to reengineer a Business Model out of the Content related to your business/practice (Dcoments, Software, ) using the tool developed by Wim Goes and Marco Dumont we called Alchemist.
Our speciality is the design of Autonomous (Smart) Systems and Highly Secure Systems.
We are the only IT-company that Guarantees its Products.
To do that we use the PoC-approach combined with special SMART tools that are able to detect possible mistakes before they occur.
If you Want you can Buy or Rent our Tools. We are also able to Select, Train and Search for highly qualified Engineers.
We are able to engineer or to re-(reverse) engineer (or adapt) Highly Complex Software-systems. In the last case we move Back in the Development-cycle.
Input in this case can be Software-code or generated code by a tool or documents/content that contains a “Sample” of the current situation. This sample can be documents describing processes but also chats that are part of a dialoque.
We are able to Verify if software correlates to the designed architecture. We are also certified to Test software or to Mediate in a Legal Conflict with a software vendor.
We are able to Train People in Programming or in other Processes. Our most effective method uses Feedback in which we Analyze the result of a process Real-time and show (mostly using movies) the best way to make the result with the highest Quality.
We are able to correlate the activities of many practioners. called a Community of Practice.
FiTiRi is a Cooperative in which many different Practices are Combined. Our Team covers Many Years of Experience.

Paths of Change.
Paths of Change (PoC) is a very old general theory about Change reinvented by Will McWhinney of UCLA (University of California Los Angelos).
Poc Uses the concept of a World View, a specific way to Observe, See, Feel the world.
The World View can be represented by the four Senses or the Four Humors.
Carl Jung called the World Views Archetypes. Myers Briggs transformed the Archetypes in a Personality Typology.
A Type is a combination of Two World Views.
John Holland used the types to define a Career Development Model.
The Types can also be used to describe the learning proces. In this case the World Views are called Learning Styles.
The types can also be used to describe a general Development or a Communication Process.
