As an experienced, certified IT professional with more than 20 years of experience in a number of industries, I have spent my career focusing on achieving optimal results and benefits for my clients through all of my engagements. I have spent several years as a consultant over my career, primarily consulting on program and project management engagements. My many engagements and opportunities have included managing large-scale system development programs, new product development and launch, strategy definition and refinement and business process management. My current engagement is a transformation effort, implementing SAFe® 4.0 for one of the primary value streams at a financial services company.
Over the years, as I have pursued increased and deeper knowledge and understanding of various disciplines, I have shared my knowledge with colleagues, old and new, by engaging in training, mentoring and coaching opportunities. Over the past several years, I have created and deliver a PMP Bootcamp Certification course, as well as an Introduction to Project Management along with an intermediate version of the project management course. While both courses are at the moment more closely aligned with traditional waterfall, since I have spent the last several years learning, implementing and operating within an Agile framework, I am now moving into that realm for training engagements. As part of learning and adopting Agile principles, I have spent the last several years engaged in various forums and conferences on Agile, and am currently in the role of a Change Leader at my current employer, working with upper management to lead the SAFe® implementation.
Over my career, I have had the opportunity to work in a number of industries including financial services, secondary mortgage market, automotive, legal, commercial real estate, Federal government and defense.
