I worked with Scott to deliver a time management system. I found him to very thorough and detailed in his approach of identifying and decomposing our project into tasks.

This is one of my very few projects I found to be a breeze, with minimal challenges. Not because it was not complex in its nature. But because we were able to follow a detailed plan (everyone knew what they had to do).

He is extremely good at managing stakeholder expectations in addition to any stress amongst team members. This, I find very precious as it is critical that project teams stay on course, are not derailed from false alarm panics and maintain good spirits. I would highly recommend Scott Harberd for any project management role. Not just because he is good at it, but because Scott is that type of person that is willing to take off his PM hat and assist with any project task ranging from testing, creating reports etc...

These qualities are paramount for delivering projects on time (which we did indeed).

Scott is an exceptionally well organised Project Manager with a skill for documenting and managing all facets of the project.

His attention to detail is meticulous enabling him to control complex and numerous activities.

Whilst working on the easyJet Resource Management Implementation project, he displayed this quality on numerous occasions which meant that the scope was kept very tight, the diverse sponsors were fully informed and remained supportive, and the whole project was successfully implemented very smoothly.

I would happily work with Scott again as I trust him to deliver, all with professionalism, honesty and good humour.

No hesitations in recommending Scott. In our time together he demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of Project Management principles and practice. He would have no problem in applying these principles to any type or scale of project.
