Colin Tully

I just found out that Middlesex University Emeritus Professor Colin Tully, an influential British computer scientist and a long-time friend, passed away on the 26th of December.

Colin and I first met over twenty years ago when I used to live in the UK, and we had many a lively discussion on information systems and technology risks and their management over the intervening years. Our latest conversations, the last of which was just a few weeks ago, have been about the risks surrounding the NHS National Program for IT (NPfIT), which Colin was deeply concerned about.

Colin was also a long-time Senior Consultant with Cutter Consortium’s Agile Product & Project Management Practice and a contributor to the Agile Product & Project Management Advisory Service.

Colin will be missed in the software engineering community.
