What others are saying about agiles’ founder

Ross’s experience expands from SMEs to large corporates

Ross was a great Project Manager looking after some large scale marketing database projects for blue chip clients against some very firm deadlines and requirements.

His software knowledge, together with his PM skills really meant he was suited to technical projects (tech was MS SQL Server & .Net environment) with the knowledge to keep them on track and overcome technical obstacles.

A great addition to my team and I knew I could always rely on him to deliver.

Over Ross’s extensive career he has fostered and harnessed his business relationships to positive effect.

I worked with Ross on several Symbian OS projects. He led them successfully with a pragmatic, forward thinking, solution oriented approach.
He always had time to deal with issues and look suitable solutions that would achieve schedule but not to the compromise of quality.
Ross has a great understanding of the importance of the work needed to achieve good software quality both upstream in development and also in the verification & error correction process.
I enjoyed working with Ross at Symbian and do not hesitate to recommend him.

I have had the pleasure of working with Ross over the past 2 years. He is a customer and delivery focused PM, who will work with a client to meet their needs, and ensure their requirements are reflected accurately He is also balanced in his delivery, ensuring that client requirements are tempered by realistic deliverables, and will work to highlight this to clients (to the degree that they will listen!) I wish Ross the best of luck in the future, and would highly recommend him to any programme, product or project management team.

Ross is an excellent project manager and a great people manager. I have worked with Ross on many projects and as his subordinate and his management skills cannot be faulted. I learned a lot from Ross both how to be a good manager and how to manage a project in a methodical and logical way. It was a privilege working with him and any business would be lucky to recruit him in either a project / program management role or management role.

I worked with Ross for several years at both Nokia and Symbian. He is an excellent program manager with the depth knowledge of all the aspects of program management. I really appreciate his capabilities and inclination towards taking up the challenges by accepting the Symbian System Software program responsibility in very challenging time of Nokia-Symbian integration with lots of uncertainty/obscurity but very critical for the Nokia products to meet the market demand on-time and quality. He is extremely good communicator who is capable of communicating things very clear crisp and with the minute detail. He is very approachable and always ready to extend the help/support and guidance to do my job the best. He is very good manger and mentor who have provided me all the guidance and opportunities to experience and learn the aspects of program management. I had a great time working with him and feel pleasure to endorse him.

Ross is simply the best Programme Manager I have ever worked with, I cannot give him a better endorsement than that. His attitude & people skills were exemplary and his ability to achieve and deliver on complicated programmes is second to none. The best thing about working for Ross was that fact he made sure his Programme team felt genuinely like they were important and all our tasks were essential to the success of the Programme. All in all a great Programme Manager.
