The Globe and Mail: Project Manager Redesign 2010

Top qualities: Great Results, Good Value, On Time

“Michael was hired to be the project manager for a large cross functional project. He did a great job of creating a project charter, a detailed plan (with key dependencies) and progress reports. Michael was very good at identifying issues and risks and providing mitigating strategies. He was not afraid to raise issues and continue to raise the same issue until the organization took action. Overall, he did a very good job as a project manager. He was not a functional expert; however, we paired him up with a full time employee who provided him with key functional expertise. Michael then learned the rest on his own. I would recommend Michael for managing large cross functional projects.” November 25, 2010

Jim Zoras, Vice President IT at The Globe and Mail (client) who hired Michael as a Business Consultant

“I worked with Michael as the Co-Lead for the Globe and Mail’s successful redesign project. The October 2010 redesign was a significant undertaking involving all departments and disciplines within the Globe and Mail. In addition, new printing presses and new technologies were commissioned across the country at its six print site locations. The newspaper industry is not a simple business, especially for a national daily product such as the Globe. Fellow colleagues marveled at the speed at which Michael grasped the nuances and intricacies and quickly became the calming influence in the sea of rapid activities and changes typical for such a project. Michael expertly utilized his depth of experience and acted with great effectiveness as the crucial link between all departmental initiatives, which enabled all stakeholders to understand and appreciate the critical interdependencies between the moving parts. It was a pleasure to work with him and I highly recommend Michael as a project manager for similar large initiatives.” December 1, 2010
