Slalom LLC, Solution Principal
April 2016 - November 2016, Vienna, VA, US
I am a Solution Principal charged with growing our Technology Enablement practice by leveraging my software development lifecycle (SDLC) and application architecture experience.
Deloitte Consulting LLP, Agile/RAD SME
October 2004 - April 2016, Arlington, VA, US
I am a Specialist Leader in the Technology practice of Deloitte Consulting. I have over 15 years of experience delivering custom software solutions primarily to Federal and State Government clients. I am fully versed in all phases of the software development life cycle (SDLC) and various methodologies with a specialty in agile programming/Rapid Application Development (RAD). I have spent the last 10+ years as a Project Manager and Scrum Master for multiple agile and iterative application development projects across multiple technology platforms (Oracle, .NET, and Mobile Application).
At my most recent Federal client, I tailored their existing SDLC and implemented an alternative software delivery model based on agile principles/Scrum practices. This approach allowed my development teams to reduce implementation timeframes from 6+ months to 6-8 weeks for new applications. We successfully leveraged daily-standups to review task progress and adress impediments, collaborated daily with Product Owners and reviewed work in progress every 2-3 weeks (sprint review/retrospective). We leveraged tools such as CollabNet to track our backlogs of user stories (as well as related test cases). We used a white board to depict current state of project (kanban).
