Program Director at Compaq

“Luciano is the best Program Manager I have ever worked with, demonstrating an exceptional breadth of management capability and outstanding technical ability. I worked with Luciano on a multi-national system implementation covering 47 countries. This program was to replace legacy HR applications and develop a Global integrated HR system for Digital Equipment Corp which was one of the largest and most complex of its kind at the time. He designed, implemented and managed a 24 hour “Follow the Sun” integrated program structure which was highly successful. He communicated precisely and effectively at all levels, from senior executives to technical and individual contributors, successfully managed the world wide Team in all major countries, often doing difficult and sensitive negotiations with foreign country teams in many countries to ensure their cooperation and, while managing all facets of details in a highly complex, time constrained program, he still displayed exceptional vision at a strategic level. He brought the Program back on schedule, managed remote teams across the world and reduced the Program cost by 20%. The Program was awarded a company “Program Excellence Awardâ”. Luciano demonstrated the highest capability as a Program manager, excellent people management skills and the wonderful ability to be flexible and to respond quickly and successfully to external change pressures.” John Rainey Managing Director, Success through Change Ltd: October 11, 2010

Director, Customer Programs, Hewlett Packard

“I have had the privilege of working with many talented program managers throughout my career, and Dave tops that list. Dave is adept at distilling very complex situations and problems into coherent actions and plans aimed at optimizing the outcome for both the business and the client. This holds true whether Dave is leading a brand new major project or program, or whether he is taking the helm of a “problem” project. He is comfortable navigating the technical, process, political and financial matters associated with major efforts, on both the business and client side. He’s very skilled at building a collaborative environment, and can be very decisive and directive when the situation dictates. If you’re looking for a steady hand to guide a complex, multi-faceted program for your organization, I cannot think of anyone more capable than Dave.” November 4, 2009
