Calvin Gibbs, A Project Manager with broad-based expertise steering Global/National projects and programs. Employ innovative technologies and strategies to execute business plans, enabling employers to achieve aggressive goals. Ability to influence decision makers and lead initiatives that improve profitability, productivity, and customer satisfaction.
Career advancement through positions of increased accountability for Program and Project Management, based on consistently exceeding goals and expectations. Through my career I have focused on user experience, user security and platform technology deployments. With engagements supporting small (4) and large (7) scrum teams, I have enjoyed rolling up my sleeves to support the "why" we are delivering the solution, while at the same time optimizing teams for on going process improvement.
2004 - 2009
At Cisco Systems, I was fortunate to be introduced to project management principles and lead an effort to deploy a servicing platform for customer servicing entitlement engagement. At Interactive Solutions, I implemented PMO standards and process that enabled turn key delivery of web site solution for multiple client engagements. During my time at Symantec/Norton.com, I began to explore iterative delivery techniques, responsible for leading scrum teams for sprints lasting of 4, 8 and 12 weeks.
2010 - 2016
Over the next 6 years I focused on supporting software for both front and backend applications. I achieved my Scrum certification and immediately used the skills learned in a more directive approach. As a Scrum Master, I actively engaged in the practice of the Agile principles which had provided me the confidence to take on leadership roles in transforming development organizations from Waterfall to Scrum Agile. I have worked with Product Owners, Developers, QA, Dev Ops, and Designers to optimize teams process, performance within the Agile framework.
Each organization I have lead, I learned the value of team collaboration, trust and openness that has become the foundation of my success for future opportunities.
