Peg Haustetter: I've worked in business operations for 15 years when I returned to college to earn a Computer Science Degree, graduated Summa Cum Laude from University of Cincinnati in 1998. Been working mainly as a Project Manager since that time. I am the glue between both the business partners and the technical teams, helping to define requirements, execute to create software products to business specs. I've even done a stint on the hardware side in the telecom industry, developing compactPCI and ATCA solutions for carriers.
Recently, I've been exposed to managing Agile projects, some successfully and others not quite so. This training has given me the information to take back to my organization and clients for successful scrum methods. I learned in the training that we were doing quite a lot "right" and have identified some areas to improve.
SEI - Cincinnati, Principal Consultant
November 2007 - Present, Cincinnati, OH, United States
As as consultant, I have a vast project experience in many roles and industries:
Traditional Program Management
Traditional Project Management, PMP
Business Analyst, certified
Certified Scrum Master, CSM
I have both a business then a technical background and find it very easy to "translate" the business speak to the technical teams and vice versa.
I have successfully completed 5 agile projects for a leading Medical Device & Diagnositics company since my training. I have authored an Agile SDLC work instruction for the same client, modifying their current traditional SDLC to reflect Agile deliverables and methods.
Currently, I am assisting a new client in the roll out of the Agile / Scrum and building a library of presentations, articles and other artifacts for my company to use with client projects.
