“Planning without action is futile, action without planning is fatal.” — Cornelius Fitchner
Project Management is all about structured, well-managed execution of the idea. It's turning the intangible into something real - plans, milestones, tasks, results, validated learning and evolution.
My project management philosophy is based on the principles of Lean Startup, encompassing Agile, Scrum, Just-In-Time. These are all processes designed to enable flexibility, efficiency, risk management, innovation and sound economics.
No two projects are the same, but the underlying principles which govern how your project is run are grounded in the fundamentals of these processes and ways of thinking.
I have experience in successfully managing complex, globally distributed project teams and small, cost effective and simply structured teams alike.
To ensure that projects are managed effectively, our toolkit is all important. We experiment and constantly challenge our tools and processes to improve communication, efficiency and transparency, but here's our current collection of preferred tools.

Trello - Linear, scrum-board-like task management system.
Beanstalk - Robust and SVN & GIT Repository
Smartsheet - GANTT charts & Project Planning
Odesk - Supply side, the ability to scale and manage teams effectively
Dropbox - Social, cloud-based file storage

We have two models for Project Management, dependant on the resources required.
1. Day Rate - Dependant on your specific resource requirements, complexity, specialisms, processes etc. I offer a negotiable day rate. Give me a shout to discuss what you need to make your project happen.
2. Turnkey service - If you also use our development resources, we offer an inclusive base-level project management service within our developer fees. Inquire to find out more about how this works.
