When developing or implementing new solutions or transforming existing ones, you need someone who cares about your team and customers. You need someone who listens carefully, asks clarifying questions, and continuously assesses alignment with requirements to create project success for you. I have a history of doing just that.
Customers and leadership come away from projects feeling honored, respected, and satisfied with the results. They feel fully and frequently informed, and appreciate the relationship that gets built every step of the way.
The visual approach that I take helps simplify the project management methodology and streamlines efficiency with team alignment. My approach avoids the often created tomes of standard project documentation that are shelved almost immediately; otherwise a great deal of time and expense can go into creating them. Evaluating the need and value to the team and customers, as well as identifying document preferences, and consumption requirements prior to making an investment in their creation is crucial.
Planning is the most important phase to project delivery and when done properly avoids complications, overruns, and missed expectations. I take a holistic approach to project planning that reduces waste, surfaces customer, team, and stakeholder expectations that gives the customer and team a voice.
If you are looking for an unconventional approach to project management and team leadership that saves you time and money, while generating team and customer satisfaction that leads to return and referral business, I am your gal.
