Project Management Experience
A Bit About The Project:
CA Engineering is a wireless development engineering company based in Draper, Utah. They needed help with updating their website to resonate with Fortune 100 companies worldwide. Their goal is to grow from a 10 Million-dollar company to a 100 Million-dollar company.
To identify tasks, Sean met with team members to identify necessary tasks. Then, he defined each task in 2-3 sentences, and determined dependencies. Using the Agile framework, his project management style enables ongoing communications and updates. As a certified-Project Management Professional, Sean used official PMP templates as a guideline.
It was clear a new website was a clear task. Within that task included nearly one hundred sub-tasks. See results below:

Determining Tasks, Constraints, and Risks

The team coordinated with Microsoft headquarters and arranged a unique opportunity to work with the official Microsoft Marketing Team to create co-branded sales materials. Microsoft co-branding logos is very strict and CA Engineering lacked specific authorization to co-brand.
Sean managed the planning, executing, monitoring, and closing phases of the project. Communicated daily between Microsoft Marketing team and CA Engineering executive team to create cohesive sales content. Included several revisions, change requests, etc.
