Bucchere Development Group was the brainchild of Chris Bucchere, a talented Plumtree Portal architect, project manager and developer who supported the original company and product releases. He assembled a team of highly skilled developers and early adopters to continue with custom development of CMS, wikis and blogs supporting the objectives and projects in various industries; high tech, government, energy and pharmaceuticals.
Chris contacted me to support the development of a project management and Agile SDLC approach, response to the RFP and participate in the subsequent interviews with the US House of Representatives. Chris and I were able to perform most of the planning and assembly of the response working remotely and submit it to the House of initial review. Once that review was complete, the House IT committee requested a face to face interview/challenge conference allow elaboration and further evaluation of the team’s capabilities and plan design and deliver the solution requested.
As the PM on the US Government ALUI Project RFP Response project, I had the following responsibilities:
- Develop Project Management/Agile SDCL Approach Response to the US House of Representatives Request for Proposal [RFP]
- Participate in RFP Oral Q&A Interviews hosted by House of Reps
- Co-develop rigorous questionnaire to elaborate RFP/Project scope
- Co-develop portions of second and third responses to RFP
- Outline Risks related to project and make recommendations
I fully endorse Chris as he was a highly competent and transparent customer from a project manager point of view. He was open to suggestions and recommendations and often applied innovative solutions to the most mundane of situations resulting in an easy going and productive work environment. If you ever have the chance to work with or for Chris, jump on the chance as you will look back on the successes that seem to follow this thought leader.
