Boyd Carter's Problem Solving Experience:
As a banker and a business consultant, I designed many internal processes to improve efficiency.
I designed and led the construction of a major Canadian bank's first data warehouse; enabling the bank to quickly advance to the largest domestic network in Canada in the mid-1990s.
As a business consultant, I designed the logic for software rules that could predict when Spring would occur (when cattle could be let out to pasture for the spring and summer) in various parts of the United States.
