Project Management

Everyone has their own definition of Project Management, mine is simple – the outcome should meet the request and expectation.

I’ll measure this based on four key criteria: Scope, Time, Budget and Quality. In order to meet all four, a strict methodology is required. From project estimation to final testing. During our working relationship I will use all of these proven document templates, project gates and decision points to ensure your project is successful.

I am experienced with various delivery methodologies; from old school Waterfall to Scrum and Kanban agile methodologies. Furthermore I worked with derivatives of each and hybrid approaches too; sequential discovery and design phases with iterative build and test cycles. I will recommend an approach which suits the project, client and culture, or you may simply have a preferred approach.

You can engage me at any Program or Project level and I will help you navigate the complexities of the project delivery process. My key project management mantra is ‘transparency and clear communication’ to manage the expectations of every party involved. From the first stakeholder engagement to final delivery acceptance, transparent communication is maintained, so expectations will be managed and key decisions can be made well in advance of risks converting issues.

The famous swing project

Tools

The choice of weapon is not important. It’s about how you use it. Software can support in a project or create sink hole for your money. (delete:Furthermore) It is more important to get the essentials: What do you want to achieve? What’s the goal? Every project needs a “goal” and some clear verbalized milestones and processes. To achieve these goals or milestones there are a couple of methodologies and techniques you can use before, during, after release and shipment of the project.  It really depends on the purpose. Just name it.
