Lisa worked as the program manager on several large-scale website projects with me for a Fortune 100 client. We worked directly together on several projects, and I had the great pleasure of seeing her ability to lead the project management and technology teams first hand.
She’s smart and well-liked by everyone, and was able to interpret and deliver on client and project needs successfully time and again—she invariably understands exactly what a project is all about from the outset and how to get it done quickly and effectively. Lisa has superior communication skills and is highly respected, and she gets along extremely well with clients, staff under her supervision, vendors, as well as her peers.
Based on my experience working with her, I can unreservedly recommend Lisa for any project management leadership role.
Lisa is a very detail-oriented person who focuses on the goals and objectives of the project. She never hesitates to put in the necessary hours to ensure project success. Lisa works well with others and manages project teams efficiently with effective results. A plus for any team that wants positive results.
I worked directly with Lisa in Production Services. During that time, Lisa provided direction for the integrated test environment and managed the majority of the implementation process. Both areas thrived under Lisa’s direction.
Lisa’s strong points were project management, incident management, and process management. Lisa was a pleasure to work with.
Lisa Pye was enlisted to perform a project recover of a complex, late, “red” client-facing effort for Hewlett-Packard. Lisa worked with local and remote teams to get the work back on track. In the spirit of recovery of a truly troubled project, she mentored the existing PM and leads to leverage their experience and expertise. She developed a very strong and respected relationship with the client at multiple levels within their organization. She earned the trust and respect of all she worked with over a period of months.
As that project came under control and headed towards completion, she was then asked to perform a similar effort on a highly visible project with a very large monthly penalty. Ms. Pye accepted that challenge and completed the project without HP incurring any penalties. I trust and respect Lisa Pye; I strongly recommend her as a Program/Project Lead.
Lisa, in her program management role for Forsythe, executed a highly complex data center migration project which lasted for approximately 12 months. Her knowledge and experience was recognized by the client team as well as the project team. Her ability as a leader provided direction and candid, well thought planning strategies. It proved to be the difference in the project and produced timely, accurate and quality results.
Lisa is a talented program/project management consultant. She has consistently delivered large, complex programs and projects with high degrees of stakeholder satisfaction… We’ve worked with hundreds of project managers over the years and Lisa is in the top 10% of that group. A true professional.
Lisa provided Arc Worldwide and me with invaluable project management over several projects, including a large multimillion dollar effort that launched on time and within budget. We effectively leveraged her expertise in developing efficient, creative project plans that blended waterfall and agile methodologies to creatively and economically bring our projects to successful deployments. Many of the tools and suggestions she brought to our program management practice are now part of our standard operating processes. She was a diligent, hard-working professional that I found a joy to work with.
Lisa is one of these rare breeds, who over years of experience has been able to master her discipline and adds significant value. Key strengths include the ability to work under significant pressure whilst retaining a cool head, build and motivate teams, communicate at all levels of an organization, interpret business to technology requirements and put in the work that is needed in order to make a program a success.
