skills

I enjoy partnering with clients to understand their strategy and to help them roadmap product development to meet their long-term goals.

I can interrogate Product Owners to bring out the detail of complex requirements, confirming their alignment with strategy, and documenting them visually. I find that business objectives can be met most effectively thorough collaborative process mapping and a user-centred approach to prototyping and system design.

Driving projects forward, I facilitate agile delivery via multi-skilled teams, with one eye firmly on quality, while managing risks and expectations, planning, budgeting, monitoring and reporting. I continually look for opportunities to improve processes, and engage stakeholders and team members equally.


Tools

I am highly literate in the usual project management software (MS Project, Visio, Office, Basecamp, Jira). I often use Lucid Chart for process design and prototyping. I am also confident with all web & media tools (Photoshop, Illustrator, HTML, CSS, Premiere, Ableton etc.).
