I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Peter Jessen (2017-2018) at Cornerstone OnDemand. Peter consulted as an implementation specialist, guiding Cornerstone on tools and Scaled Agile (SAFe® Framework). Lawrence Shin
As the Program Manager at Cornerstone, we benefitted from Peter’s expertise in the AgileCraft tool, as well as his knowledge of SAFe® Framework. Peter shared his expertise across the entire life-cycle of developing products and building applications. As the implementation specialist, Peter was attentive and present. He listened to and took onboard feedback and provided support throughout the implementation project. His coaching skills were valuable and helped us to integrate our workflow within the SAFe Framework, and tools (e.g. JIRA, AgileCraft).
Without Peter’s proficiency in AgileCraft, SAFe®, and JIRA, the implementation would have been very difficult. There were many instances where we encountered challenges with adapting AgileCraft and our JIRA instance, but Peter worked with all our teams to define and resolve the issues (whether that was overnight, over weekends, etc.) to ensure that we were unblocked, in a timely manner.
In summary, we would not have been able to make the progress we made, without Peter. His complete understanding of AgileCraft, JIRA, and the SAFe® Framework made him the ideal specialist for the implementation. Furthermore, Peter also invests his time sharing and supporting others with his knowledge base, and helping to develop others who are interested, with his experience and knowledge base.
