Their mission is to support the Ravinia Festival by promoting awareness of Ravinia and its musical programs, encouraging audience development, and contributing to Ravinia’s REACH*TEACH*PLAY education programs. Business Analyst @ ThoughtWorks As a business analyst, I met with our clients to understand their processes and requirements. I would author our "story narratives" and work with the development team to build the client's functionality. From September 2002 to August 2003 (1 year) QA Analyst / Tester @ ThoughtWorks As a software tester, I created and designed our manual regression test suite, authored automated tests, and designed the program's key metrics and governance dashboard. From August 2000 to August 2002 (2 years 1 month) Co-Founder @ Walkshop Walkshop is a multi-day hiking + design thinking experience for leaders, executives, and entrepreneurs. It's a dedicated time to go off the grid with peers in your industry, push your limits while staying on your feet, recharge while being offline, develop new leadership skills, and grow deeply human connections. Client Principal @ ThoughtWorks As a client principal, I am responsible for sales and business development for my accounts, for providing consulting and advisory services to senior executives (CIO, CTO, COO), looking after the career growth and development opportunities of those on my accounts, and being the overall backstop for software delivery.In 2010, I was responsible for launching the new ThoughtWorks offering and services in Germany. I opened a new office in January and started to build the book that would allow us to expand into the continent. From September 2009 to October 2011 (2 years 2 months) Program Manager @ ThoughtWorks As a Program Manager, I was responsible for running several concurrent agile projects, for introducing the project governance model for my clients, and for effectively managing their PMO. In addition to delivery work, I specialized in organizational transformation consulting, providing consulting services around project governance and the agile PMO. From January 2007 to September 2009 (2 years 9 months) Project Manager @ ThoughtWorks As a project manager, I was primarily responsible for the delivery of some of ThoughtWorks's largest and most complex software projects (generally managing several 'sub-teams', each with 10-15 people and their own Iteration Managers). This included the management of senior executive and stakeholder expectations. As a PM, I was involved in each Steering Committee meeting to manage scope, budget, timelines, and overall delivery.During this time, I ran one of ThoughtWorks largest teams (100+ people) distributed between the US and India. Spending time in Bangalore, Chicago, and Minneapolis, I brought proven Agile development methods to a complex, distributed project environment.In 2006-07, I moved to Australia to lead the software delivery efforts of an industry leading insurance company in Melbourne. From October 2004 to 2006 (2 years) Iteration Manager @ ThoughtWorks As an iteration manager (a title similar to "Scrum Master"), I lead several teams - mostly on distributed development projects. Each team consisted of 6-8 developers, 2-3 testers, and 2-3 business analysts. As the team lead, I was responsible for delivering my part of the project on time, on budget, and within quality standards. As an Iteration Manager, I was responsible for managing the agile process within the team and communicating out to the client and Project Manager on risks, progress, and spend.During this time, I lead delivery efforts in London for two years and Chicago, before stepping up to become a Project Manager.
