While I was a Cap Gemini Consultant deployed to San Diego Gas and Electric, Daniel, an independent consultant, was brought into SDG&E’s Smart Meter / Operational Reporting initiative late as a ‘workout’ Project Manager, because scope had been proliferating and deliverables were woefully behind schedule. Daniel’s hassan-valji-mugshotrigorous project management, technical chops, and ability to negotiate must-haves vs. nice-to-haves with constituents set the stage for recovery and success.  He focussed the technical team to quickly get the critical reports built, tested, and delivered on schedule, thus providing those must-have metrics for release of invoiced payables to the prime contractor.
