National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (Phase I), Development Lead
August 2012 - March 2015, Arlington, VA, United States
When I joined Excella Consulting as a Consultant, my first project was a small part of a re-build effort for a 25 year old mainframe retirement system as a modern web application. In the past two and a half years this project has taught me a lot. This project had enormous challenges. We had to earn the trust of the client in smaller projects before we could win the larger piece of work. We had to educate the client on SCRUM. We had learn to deliver a SCRUM project in a firm fixed price environment, where customer demands for functionality and schedule wasn't a variable. Me and my team have found overall success due to our use of SCRUM in this challenging environment.
