A recent initiative at Capital One involved reworking the roles and responsibilities of Agile professionals in a technology division. Greg worked with leadership of both Technology and Product areas to help identify organizational needs, align Agile resources with those needs, and design and roll out a training program nationwide for Agile professionals, resulting in more effective teams and greater buy-in from the technology and product executives.
Greg worked with GFOA to design and facilitate an immersive, transformational training program aimed at increasing the ability of Financial Officers to engage with their partners, stakeholders and constituents in the practice of municipal financial planning. This involved introducing innovative facilitation techniques, designing a unique multi-day offsite, and training the participants to use the techniques learned in their organizations.
Greg designed a portfolio management system for INGDirect that involved intake, estimation, and tracking all new development work for more than 20 web and mobile development teams split over multiple sites and incorporating multiple external vendors. This enabled accurate prioritization and tracking of initiatives, allowing teams and development programs to efficiently and effectively plan and track their product work, both current and future.
