My strengths include process improvement and creative problem solving. I enjoy Scrum Master within Agile as it fosters collaboration, respect and efficiency which equates to a faster quality product to market as well as an accountable team.
Here are comments from my review:
- "Cherie is exceptional and provides the structure and guidance to maintain positive momentum. She raises issues appropriately and does not let them go unaddressed. She values the inputs of all team members and creates positive, productive meetings for planning and discovery. Additionally, Cherie has shown a remarkable drive and commitment during a very complex and stressful ...effort."
- "In the 5 years that I have worked at ..., Cherie is THE best Project Manager that I have worked with. Excellent organization and initiative. Excellent interaction and involvement, letting individuals have ownership and responsibility and then stepping in when progress slows due to difficulties, excellent "presence". I believe Cherie has SIGNIFICANTLY contributed to the progress of the ... project. Managing multiple teams, priorities and efforts beyond her position. I believe most other project managers would have failed or hindered (or at least significantly annoyed team members... in a bad way)."
