Success Stories (3)

During his over 30 years span of professional IT and Engineering career with large, reputable, brand name organizations, last 20+ years in (senior) management positions, 3 times at the director level, through his hard work, dedication, talents and creatifivity, Cliff had numerous contributions, achievements, and accomplishments to those organizations' projects success.  Those numerous success stories are described in the attached document in a Q&A format.  The following are the list of questions: (1, 2, 3, 4)

How did you respond?

Describe your style as a PEOPLE Manager and also as a Manager of TASKS or TOOLS? Do you consider yourself stronger toward one way or another?

How do you counsel PM's whose self-perception is not reality  - for example, the employee thinks they are doing great, but as a manager you are getting ‘complaints’ about them? What does that mean to you and can you give examples of when you have had to do this?

How do you build relationships with Executive Management? Can you give examples?

Do you prefer to work independently or on a team?

What are some of the skills you believe a person must possess to be a successful project manager? Can you provide examples of you utilizing these skills in your professional career?

Based on my over 20 years of project/program management, or as a group/dept. manager/director, I have developed an “equation” of what it makes to be a successful PM:

Tell me about one of the most complicated projects you have worked on in detail, what type (software, IT, infrastructure, web portal, supply chain etc.) of project it was and what was the result.

Do you prefer to be a contractor or full time?
