I manage all areas of the software development life cycle (SDLC) with a blend of traditional and agile methods appropriate to the client, the team and the environment. I have an artful “it depends” approach to decision making that requires nuance and finesse and can only be honed by experience.
Through management and staff interviews, I gather expressed requirements and translate them into business, technical and functional specs that serve as project blueprints and roadmaps. I build useful Work Breakdown Structures for varied audiences that are both backward and forward looking. This level of reporting brings comfort to owners, stakeholders and functional leaders.
My experience comes from enterprise environments at Dell, Power Computing, Technicolor, Northrop Grumman and Southwest Airlines, plus dozens of small business, nonprofit, government and education projects. My methodology can be applied to all types of IT and product development projects from stand-alone apps to legacy app upgrades, systems integration and new market advances.
