En résumé

Over the 10 last years working as an IT consultant, I learnt a lot thanks to amazing people I worked with and I worked for.
Customer relationship management, workforce management solutions, e-tendering, Sales representative, Projects manager, people coaching and support, solution maintenance, proposal, business development, technical integration... these are key words to summarize last ten years I went through.
I'm now taking another role, on the client side this time: I'll use all these previous experiences to make that new challenge as successful as possible.

  • Gaz Métro - IT Analyst - Gas Procurement

    2014 - maintenant In charge of Gaz Métro's Gas Procurement solution, I'll be the key interface between Business Users and IT department.
    Waiting for the new solution to be fully operational, I'll be part of the implementation project starting now.
  • Accenture - Project manager - Sales Force Implementation

    Paris 2014 - 2014 Launch in January 2014, the project is supposed to go live in March 2015. This project over 5000 days aims to implement SalesForce.com, a CRM Cloud solution at Sales & Marketing Department of a Transportation company.

    First six months were dedicated to scope and estimate the following parts of the project. I had to gain credibility in Client’s eyes as I was one of the most junior Project manager they had to deal with.
    During that Analyze phase, I had to manage a 5 members Accenture on-shore team. A very short time frame forced us to follow a very challenging schedule: I had to constantly adjust it, manage client expectation and support the team in difficult times. I also had to understand the rest of the scoping activities as this project involves a lot of integration with legacy systems. To support business process reengineering, I brought a lot of expertise to the client related to Business to Business CRM best practices. In parallel to that exercise, I drove the estimating exercise, leveraging both internal methodology, tools, and relevant SMEs, in North America, India and Philippines. I built the business case, the staffing plan and helped in the writing of the Statement of Work.

    Between June and October 2014, I co-managed with my client counterpart the Design and Build phases. I built all detailed resources/activities plan, for local team (5 FTE) and off-shore team (5 FTE). I was involved in all area, from administrative item, to functional decision and technical architecture follow-up. I played a key role in scope management to ensure business needs are properly fulfilled, without extending project budget.
    Over October, before leaving my position, I planned all the test phase and closely monitor the first weeks of test scripting to ensure a smooth transition.
  • Accenture - Delivery lead - Workforce management

    Launch in November 2012, the project went live in November 2013: this above 3500 days project aims to implement Click Schedule, a workforce and workload management solution for a Utility client.
    First weeks were dedicated to get up to speed on workforce management challenges (business perspective and certification on solution).
    Early February 2013 – begin of design phase – I took responsibility of the whole project (15 FTE). I then managed the project from end to end, coordinating a mixed team including Client and Accenture team members as well as contractors. We successfully integrated with two other projects delivered in parallel.
    We faced many challenges as the solution, designed for short single-man activities has to be adjusted to fit with multi-days tasks performed by complex teams: Both processes and solution had to be challenged continuously to get a suitable solution.
