  • Client account management – build relationships and present a professional, interested front for our client
  • Software project management - including origination and initiation, and throughout Software Development Lifecycle
  • Status tracking of project tasks, milestones, deliverables or key dates
  • Risk and expectation management – resourcing, deliverables, requirements and at times budgets
  • Change management – careful and flexible control of scope, ability to estimate work effort on new scope (in conjunction with team)
  • High degree of client communication – will often be point contact to a client for a project
  • Composition, delivery and tracking of client status reports

  • Facilitating client feedback at all touch points (demos, meetings, calls, etc), and management thereof
