Improved design efficiencies: created a product development platform approach to satisfy current new product development requests as well as future products on the various product roadmaps.
Determining which elements of a given design that should be platformed, defining their interfaces, and deploying them as direct reuse platformed elements.
These platform elements have been leveraged to shorten future product development efforts by upwards of 70%.
Improved product quality: Created an automated functional test scheme that exercises a product under development for 100% of its known use cases and functional requirements.
This assures that a newly launched product will perform as intended and expected per the product requirements document.
Additionally, I've instituted a product "launch monitor" process that captures any and all customer feedback for the first 12 months of a newly launched product to determine where testing was missed or incorrectly executed such that a complaint could come in.
Product test plans are then updated to account for the customer feedback so that future designs will incorporate an tests to ensure continuous improving quality.
Improved employee engagement: actively engaged members of my team has risen by 31% based on Gallup Engagement Surveys.
This was accomplished through my intense focus on learning about each individual on my team - Strengths based coaching, learning who each person is, what gets in "the zone", assigning them specific tasks that leverages their strengths, and surrounding them with like-minded, quality focused team mates.
