Jon has a very strong and diversified set of project management skills which he applies in a practical approach. He is especially adept at building consensus and ensuring that proper disciplines and procedures are in place based on the size and scope of the project . He is most effective in his ability to establish the needed project management processes that allows for close controls and monitors to be used to anticipate rather than react to risks. Jon has solid communication and leadership skills that allows him to get the optimum performance from his team and to motivate individual contributors to be effective team players.”
“Jon and I worked together for nearly 3 years managing the testing of software development projects in Aetna’s Data. Jon managed a heterogeneous team of software testers, subject matter experts, and test managers of various technical and professional skill levels. He analyzed the needs of the team and the projects and then matched them in a way that ensured that the team was developing while the project goals were met. He often assigned large, complex projects to me and then supported my work as a test manager with the most experienced and professional testers and SME’s. Also, Jon ran interference for his teams by prioritizing the varied demands of management on our time so that we could focus on the project work and meet our goals. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Jon again.”
“I have had the pleasure of working with Jon at two client accounts where we were both consultants for IBM. At one account, I reported directly to Jon for a variety of assignments, delivering new applications to the client under aggressive deadlines. Jon consistently impressed me with his organizational skills, attention to detail and ability to remain calm under pressure. Jon is an ‘early adopter’ who enthusiastically embraces new methodologies and technologies while leading others through change. I would happily work for him or with him again in the future.”
