While we have been busy with new clients, we’ve continued to expand our team and would like to introduce some new faces! While we’re very sad to see Hassan go, we’re over the moon to be working with David on delivery and to have access to his wealth of knowledge in project, program, and assurance. David has been in consulting for many years now, and his main role with us will be to support the execution of the overall development of an end to end strategy of change for the Client’s Project Management Office operation including supporting the recommendations, gap analysis and execution of strategy.
What is your role at Agile Management Office?
My primary role within AMO is Delivery Lead. As a Delivery Lead, I will be responsible for supporting clients with executing their strategy on change, governance and transformation programmes. I will also be directly supporting our CEO Fatimah Abbouchi on execution and delivery of AMO’s strategy applying our own AMO MethodTM
When not performing my role as Delivery Lead, I contribute with the development of processes, tools and techniques that expand on the AMO MethodTM and supporting frameworks.
Why did you choose to work for Agile Management Office?
I have known Faitmah for a few years now after connecting via LinkedIn. A few discussions later it became apparent that we shared a similar philosophy on all things project, program and portfolio management and around utilising and implementing continuous improvement, agility and related techniques in our approach to work. I have worked for AMO before on an ad-hoc basis but recently the opportunity came up to work together in a more formal way which led me to come on board as an AMO consultant.
Working with AMO gives me the opportunity to build on my experiences in heavy industry sectors such as electrical infrastructure, water, power and gas and healthcare working with a diverse set of clients. It will also afford me the opportunity to develop new skills and experience in traditional sectors for AMO such as financial and retail sectors.
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
I have two beautiful young human beings whom I share co-parenting duties with their mother 50/50, so school drop offs/pickups, sporting activities etc. keep me busy.
I try to keep active as much as possible. Whilst not a gym junkie, I do get there 2-3 times a week (COVID permitting). I also like to go on walks, swimming and hanging out with friends. Living in the Mornington Peninsula I get down to the beach as much as possible and have been known to take a dip in the bay during winter most mornings to clear the mind. I take occasional advantage of the vast odd wineries, breweries and distilleries we have down in the Peninsula to catch up with friends and sometimes customers and colleagues.
Up early or out late?
Up early definitely. I feel more productive when I’m not on parenting duty, early mornings are the time for me to get in my walks and/or gym sessions before I talk myself out of going during the day. Whilst not a typical night owl, I’m also not a early to bed/early to rise person and use some of the night time to catch up on things.
