Local or Global. Agile or Waterfall.
strategic project delivery
Projects are complex and a drain on business and IT. With the scale and complexity of enterprise projects, it is difficult for Business and IT to meet the demand for project delivery professionals with leadership skills; a trait critical for success as reported by the Project Management Institute. Using proven best practices refined over the past 13+ years leading business projects and large scale custom software implementations using Agile and Iterative Waterfall processes, I work closely with IT and business to ensure delivery of what business expects to receive.
Decisions are slow when there are many options and limited subject matter expertise. By leveraging my vendor background in both software sales and technology consulting, the guess work is removed and decisions are swift. I also bring 20 years of contract negotiation expertise to ensure our client obtains the most cost effective and best possible licensing and consulting agreement.
Project failures waste billions of dollars each year. I have successfully recovered 100% of the complex, high profile projects that were failing to deliver results at LPL Financial, RBC CM, BMO CM, and CIBC WM.
coach & Mentor
Coaching accelerates achievement by removing obstacles, uncovering untapped strengths and having each person show up in their fullest expression with greater confidence and ready to work at their highest level. As a professional Coach, I work with leaders and teams to build confidence, competency, knowledge, and strengthen delivery practices.
Business visibility into a portfolio is critical to ensure alignment and progress towards established objectives and forms the bridge between strategy and implementation. With centralized management of programs and projects, transparency is critical for executive management to meet organizational goals and objectives through informed decision making.
