It is my pleasure to recommend Damian Shurman as project manager over the integration of the omnichannel Solution created by Nokia, for Telefonica Argentina, and he brought that project in on time, slightly under budget and with no major obstacles. Damian is highly respected by his colleagues and subordinates and skillfully managed the plethora of personalities involved with his last project. His enthusiastic, optimistic attitude is contagious and serves to motivate and energize his project staff. He is a natural leader who has the gift of identifying each staff member’s primary talents and bringing out the best in each one throughout the entire project. Damian is very calm and collected under pressure. He has superb problem-solving skills as well as exceptional team-building skills. In the course of managing his last project, Damian demonstrated an ability to quickly sift through mountains of data and determine which was relevant to the project and should be used and which was irrelevant and could be discarded. He was able to focus on the stated objectives of the project and prioritize every task necessary to accomplish the desired result. He was key in implementing an agile delivery of the project, with partial delivery to the client and adapting to meet client expectations following agile methodologies. From there his assigned the right individuals for each small task and provided detailed instructions, encouragement and advice and so that each project staff member had a clear direction and took part in the overall success of the project. Damian showed an uncanny ability to foresee a potential problem and essentially nip it in the bud saving the company money and preventing unexpected hurdles from delaying the project’s ultimate implementation. An effective delegator, Damian trusts the team he assembles and they have tremendous faith in his as a fair and effective leader. I am happy to recommend Damian Schurman to manage any important project.
