Alicia’s experience in project management is primarily in the non-tech, people-focused space (community-based research, workplace wellbeing). For her, projects that focus on social change, particularly with Indigenous communities, are a passion and align with her goal to work where she can be of greatest value to support communities surging forward.
In people-centred work, we are often piloting programs and ideas to see what works in a dynamic, sometimes massive workforce or community setting. This is why we employ agile methods, allowing us to be hyper adaptive. We can do project charters and detailed plans. We are happiest when we are helping you use technologies like Asana or Trello to help you get setup with a Kanban board and work with adaptability and transparency.
We love working in, with, and for communities.
Kanban is a popular agile framework for continual improvement. It uses flow-based methods to visualize work processes in a Kanban board. The key tenet of Kanban is limiting work-in-progress to expose/alleviate bottlenecks and increase the amount of work that reaches the stage of “done.” Kanban can be applied anywhere, and we have experience implementing it for program management in interdisciplinary, cross-department work in a post-secondary setting.
As a certified Professional Scrum Master (Scrum.org), Alicia has the skills to apply Scrum in any setting, adhering to the 3 roles, 3 artifacts, and 5 events in the framework.
