Engineering Project Manager Intern,
9/2010 to 6/2011
Gained engineering project management experience, assisting PMs in developing project scopes, budgets and schedules for custom solutions engineering initiatives. Helped manage each phase of the software development lifecycle (SDLC) — from requirements definition, solutions design and testing through implementation, acceptance, training and support.

Project Contributions:

  • Assisted in the preparation of staffing, deployment and support plans as well as checkpoint reviews that facilitated forward momentum of each project phase for global solutions engineering projects.
  • Analyzed competing priorities, financial/resource constraints and schedule considerations to determine costs and benefits of change requests.
  • Worked collaboratively with internal and external teams to ensure successful project outcomes.
  • Suggested actual cost of work performed (ACWP) process that more accurately incorporated both direct and indirect project costs (subsequently adopted across several engineering groups as a best practice).
  • Introduced ways to accelerate the application development lifecycle without compromising the quality of deliverables, including a suggestion that was nominated for the “President’s Innovation Award.”
