Involved in projects

Teamwork

Problems always start when we think about ourself, not whole initiative. In project there is not "I", there is only "WE". Teamwork is the key of success.

Accuracy

Leading the execution of Nordea and PKO Merger weekend shew me that even the biggest project can fail because of small detail. Without accuracy, high risk will be always part of project.

Technical skills

IT project management is very difficult without technical skills. 4 years of programming in Java, PHP and MySQL gave me possibility to a deeper understanding of my projects and easier their management.

My Recommendations

" I have worked closely with Tomasz for over 9 months within a major transformation and migration programme in Poland. [...] During his time here Tomasz has been a part of the Project Management Team in the delivering entity Nordea IT Poland, where he has had different responsibilities and most notably has managed the detailed planning and the following execution of deployment and roll-out. Tomasz has a truly high level of motivation and commitment. He has proven the ability of multitasking whilst keeping a good spirit that motivates and strengthens the team. This, combined with his determination of always delivering on time and to expectations, even under pressure. "

On that project I was impressed by his initiative and his thirst for knowledge. During Migration Programme he demonstrated strong problem solving skills. He played the primary role during “D-day” operations as he was responsible for migration rollout coordination."
