I have over 20 years experience working on IT Software Development Projects. Most of which has been spent in a Project Management role. I started my career as a Software Developer specialising in database & data warehouse technologies. I used to code in C/C++ and Visual Basic (before the days of .Net). These days the only coding I do is limited to some PHP and Python for fun. You can read more about my latest Raspberry Pi based projects at SkaterMark.
I hold an MBA specialising in IT Management from University of Leicester. I’m also a certified PRINCE2 and Managing Successful Programmes Practitioner. More recently, my interests have moved along with the industry as a whole to encompase Agile. I am consequently a certified Professional Scrum Master, and am currently studying for the DSDM Agile Professional certification.
My experience is not simply certification based. I have a long and proven track record of successful project delivery both for external clients as part of an IT Consultancy and for global internal customers as part of a global market research project. Most of the projects I’ve worked on for the past 15 years have involved globally distributed teams, which introduces its own unique set of challenges.
