What their “employees say”

Having spent many years as an internal project manager, I thought I knew all I needed to know about project management. Although, since making the move to Stoneseed I have noticed several differences. What I knew to be project management was very much a “watered down” version...

Now I am a client-side project manager, I support and own every part of the process. I must drive vendor competency whilst managing client relationships and align expectations, in other words true project management.

The variety of projects is what makes it interesting.
