Objective: Project Management leading to ever greater responsibilities.
As project manager with BellSouth Telecommunications in Birmingham, Alabama, they initially provided only local telephone service in the nine southeastern United States. My teams were responsible for the coalescing of relevant customer service metric data from diverse sources, for the cleaning and normalizing of that data (data profiling), and for the reporting of those metrics (in graphical format) to U.S. governmental organizations such as state PSCs (Public Service Commissions), the DOJ (Department of Justice), and the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) via a data warehouse/mart. The goal was to bring BellSouth into the long distance telephone service industry. The vehicle was the production and delivery of FCC 271-compliant “quality of service” reports (~2,500 per state) on a strict monthly schedule. The result was a unanimous FCC vote (4-0) in-favor of allowing BellSouth (now AT&T) entry into the long distance market.
My responsibilities comprised concurrently-managed teams (programmers, ETL designers, technical personnel). The development team (software developers) was responsible for implementation of new measures and changes/enhancements to current measures based on the specifications of BellSouth BA (Business Analyst) interpretations of FCC requirements. The ETL team optimized and orchestrated the data movement/translation from various sources into the 271 data warehouse. The reporting team (technical people) was responsible for report generation, quality control, and posting [for delivery] to the governmental organizations. The 271 teams were required to cyclically interact with other BellSouth teams such as QA, the SMEs (Subject Matter Experts), the BAs, and the validation team in Atlanta, Georgia. As the external delivery point of all FCC 271 corporate data, I directly managed 15 (indirect management totaled 40-50). Concurrent to the 271 project were management, design, and implementation considerations applicable to the proposed succeeding project which would build on 271 successes.
My management style keeps me closely involved in the technical aspects of the project as well as the administrative duties. I was responsible for team staffing, and for scheduling the short- and mid-term milestones (WBS) from design through production. I was responsible for risk analysis/management, and for project planning and execution. I architected and implemented the Oracle 9.0 database and schema for the project.
My DISC personality profile shows a “high DC” (3% of population), which yields the attributes of entrepreneur, developer, and results-oriented.
I have considerable experience in management, applications development and implementation, and process re-engineering for a varied range of clients. My interests are in all business areas, especially where client/server and new technologies can be considered and/or implemented. I’m skilled at transforming traditional paper-based processes to the paperless, web-based medium. And I always enjoy the challenges of data architecture, storage, conversion, and warehousing.
