“Regarding work ethic, Ed completes his work quickly and with the highest quality. On more than one occasion, Ed was given total responsibility for developing critical components to our systems and each time he delivered total quality solutions. From initial analysis through final delivery, Ed worked with various technical staff on user requirements analysis, data modeling, task definition and estimation, and overall project management. Ed was outstanding at determining the scope and timing of what we needed to accomplish. Ed also performed technical reviews of many components, determining the architectural approach, and managing and/or directing the necessary resources to accomplish the plan he developed. He does an outstanding job on every aspect of the projects he manages or is involved in. Ed’s business acumen came across very strong in client communications. Ed understands that IT is the enabler for the organization, and how the client uses that enabler is their decision. Many projects we were involved in had an extremely tight budget, as well as technical constraints on how much we could change. When items were very technically complex and costly, Ed never just said “no”. He always gave the client all the information: cost, timeline, technical constraints, etc. He then explained it in a very client friendly way that allowed everyone to understand the full implications. By implementing this process, fact-based decisions were made quickly, and the project progressed on schedule and on budget. Ed is also very flexible when decisions were made that didn’t fit the plan. His re-planning and coordination is exceptional.”
