Multidisciplinary Consulting Expert with Fortune 10 Experience
Thank you for taking a few moments to glance over my Upwork (oDesk) profile.
I possess an excellent command of English (it happens to be my native language!), verifiable accredited U.S. qualifications, authentic Fortune 10/100 work experience, as well as a powerful portfolio of specializations, skills, experience, and capabilities.
Although I've passed over 90 oDesk/Upwork tests and more than 27 Brainbench tests, I regularly add new skills to my portfolio.
AREAS OF EXPERTISE:
Advanced Project, Program and Portfolio Management (SCPM - Stanford)
Business Consulting - Leadership, Management, and Technological
Management of technology
Marketing: Penetration of new market segments
Design of Tests and Examinations - including Psychometric Evaluation
Quality Management (CMQ/OE: ASQ Certified Manager of Quality / Organizational Excellence)
Quality Engineering (CQE: ASQ Certified Quality Engineer)
Software Quality Assurance (CSQE: ASQ Certified software Quality Engineer)
ISO 9001, SPICE, TickIT and other Quality Standards
SDLC / Agile Software Development Methodologies
Software Technologies and Development Environments
Multidisciplinary Training - Individual and Groups
GRE and GMAT Examinations Coaching
I have a working knowledge of a broad range of software across a wide range of industry segments (general management, international quality systems standards formulation, market penetration, manufacturing, financial services, customer service, training, software development, systems implementation, systems analysis, systems certification and accreditation), together with primary and secondary research capabilities.
As far back as 1994, I designed, developed and successfully implemented across several sites, a Refinanced Loan Management System (RLMS) while serving as the joint Management Information Systems Expert and Computer systems Specialist for the SFLCP project funded by the International Fund for Agriculture of the United Nations (UN / IFAD) and the Canadian International Development Agency.
During the relatively short period of July 1996 to September 1997, I designed, developed, and successfully implemented what was probably the world's first ISO 9001-compliant Quality Management System that allowed new technology platforms to be added without the need for immediate re-certification.
What all this means to you is that you finally have the ability to economically hire someone who is quite comfortable delving into even the smallest details while simultaneously monitoring the "big picture," ensuring you get the most from whatever your assignment requires.
Of course, I prefer to work with clients who look forward to taking their companies to the next level in terms of performance, profitability, as well as corporate responsibility. Stay tuned for new skills, technologies and achievements that I will be adding to my portfolio in the very near future.
