Curriculum Vitae for SAP S4/HANA:
I am a qualified manager and team leader of developers with 10 years of
experience in Europe and the USA. I have worked on a couple of international
assignments in SAP and other software packages. I have an excellent experience in data migration and
software development. I have built a solid understanding of material management
and production planning in a number of different industries. I am systematic and a good analyst able
to find a problem and propose its solution.
Besides my full work engagement I also devote my leisure time to several hobbies. Lately, I have totally fallen for playing golf and web projects development with the social networking support, for example the portal "Co je v akci' I spend most of my leisure time on the golf course as well as on the Internet. I highly enjoy the fact that both my hobbies provides me with the opportunity to personally meet many interesting people and get to know new technologies while developing the portal.
My life has been going in happy spirit since my early childhood. I was born in a pub. There used to be dance parties,
music, singing and so the place was full of energy. Perhaps my love to music is rooted here, especially
playing the accordion
, and passion to share happiness with my attitude for life just like
the boys from Liverpool.
I was born as an optimist and so I consider everything "to be covered in the ray of sunshine", as my colleague says. When something goes wrong at work, I gladly come up with a joke or a funny gag to cheer up others.
Even though I might look serious on the photos, there´s deepest love to life and sense of humor behind my seemingly gloomy visage. To me humor and laughter comes always first. In particular I like IT jokes, for example this one:

Project Leader: Turning IT into a good craft
IT is relatively new and rapidly developing area which has grown in significance over past decades.
Many IT projects suffer from huge part of imperfectly performed work due to this precipitous evolution. This leads
to claims and additional change requests.The project usually misses standards yet each quality project should be based
on such standards.
In most other areas the standards are clearly defined. If you had a house roof to be rebuilt, it is quite clear that no water leakages should be acceptable. In IT project reality though, most of the IT projects are leaking if not pouring through.
IT should be a craft in first place - a well performed craft. This fact should be learnt by young IT students from the very start of their education. That´s why I decided to participate in FIT ČVUT as well as to be professionally taking part in creation of best practises -standards that we should follow and expect.

I had the pleasure of working with Frantisek Honsa as a consultant. I can say that in every respect he is a very reliable partner who can keep his word and act with sincerity of his own. His ability to absorb new stimuli and constructive criticism is admirable. I attribute this partly to his analytical skills, partly to the personal history of a man who, even as a recognized expert, does not play with anything and is still willing to learn new things, even outside his field. I have seen several times that he is able to correctly evaluate even a very complex problem, including numerous social, temporal, interdisciplinary, technical and functional connections. ” (December 19, 2015)
