When: September 2017 - August 2018
Rozi consulted with Marble and advised them on product development strategy for their last-mile delivery robot. During the initial phase of the engagement, Rozi:
Created program plan for development of last-mile delivery robots
Created engineering schedule from prototype to production validation test
Defined milestones and deliverables for each department
Defined engineering build strategy and planning
Created company-wide organization chart proposal including roles & responsibilities
Streamlined company-wide communication
After creating the product development plan, Rozi continued to mentor the HW and SW team leads on team development and product development fundamentals.
Rozi led the talent search and hiring of a full-time Engineering Program Management (EPM) lead. While the hiring process was ongoing, Rozi provided EPM support for Marble in the following ways:
Created SW task/issue management and sprint planning processes
Created HW development and release processes
Defined the vendor management strategy
Once an EPM lead was hired, Rozi trained him on existing processes, company culture, and future goals before handing over management responsibilities and phasing off of the project.
Jason Calaiaro, HW lead at Marble, had this to say:
Rozi got our company back on track by helping us create a program plan and schedule, improving our engineering processes, and hiring a fantastic EPM lead.
