Key Accomplishments:

Pioneered the Operations Quality Team in which the goal was to create a comprehensive, customizable IT Infrastructure PM project plan so that all PM’s could execute infrastructure projects more efficiently and consistently as well as for training new hires. New project plan had training notes with each Task directing them to new forms, entrance criteria required, service level agreements, etc. The outcome was a customizable master project plan.

To achieve this goal, I led a team to meet with all Engineering Operations internal/external stakeholders (24) to obtain their Interdependencies, Entrance Criteria, Deliverables and Points of Pain. After training peers, this goal was achieved and team is now executing projects consistently with better results of coming in on-time and on-budget. Stakeholders continue to utilize the OQT for any changes to the business so that adjustments can be made and processes updated after reviewing and obtaining consensus. Points of Pain were taken seriously and resolved with making changes to the way we managed projects and do business. PM tools were adjusted to promote the efficiencies to be implemented. (Service Manager, PMO tools, etc.)

Most notable projects are: 1) the 182 server build-out for Sprint’s Prepaid customer base, merging various outdated web portals into one. (Virgin Mobile, Boost Mobile, etc.) 2) 82 new server build-out for Sprint’s new Service Manager System including the entire ITSM suite.

Sprint Lenexa, KS Sept, 1998 – Sept, 2007

Program/Project Manager –Enterprise Solutions Center Help Desk

As a Sr. Program/Project Manager on this team I was considered an expert and was responsible for training new hires on project management methodology, concepts, project management tools and internal processes. I managed small to large diverse project teams, achieving on time and within budget integrations while delivering the customer’s specific requirements for support for their application.

Key Accomplishments:

Projects were related to IT new business integrations for the ESC Help Desk providing optimum internal support for the following internal and external customer base:

Sprint retail stores

Sprint external vendors

Sprint resellers

Sprint call centers

Sprint indirect dealers

Sprint cable partners

Project portfolio highlights include: The management of Sprint Nextel merger activity that eliminated the Nextel (outsourced EDS) help desk through the merging of support into the existing Sprint ESC help desk resulting in a cost savings to Sprint per support transaction.

Managed the developed web site portals for online problem reporting realizing cost savings and call deflection for the help desk (Self Help with Knowledge Objects)

Implemented CHAT feature as an alternate support channel for the help desk

Integrated Nextel Systems and Applications to Sprint for support

This position also included development and implementation of interdependent processes relating to support integration and change management, into the help desk for various Sprint standard applications and products. While performing project management responsibilities, I also managed the overall ESC’s $8M expense and capital budget from 1998-1999 which entailed explanation of variances, accrual management and ‘on-target’ planning. Achieved a successful 1-2% under run.
