Are you able to meet aggressive deadlines? Do you have experience doing so in the past?Planed projects are ideal but not always the circumstance.

Though some projects may be deemed non-standard, providing my resolution does not jeopardize any facet of the business.

How do you measure the success of your work?Measurement of success can be reviewed by the outcome of my completed projects. If a process went smoothly, held to or utilized minimal budget and my client is satisfied with the outcome, this is a successful project.

Some projects also are contingent on completing previous projects (ground work) establishing order to projects to follow.What aspects of your job do you consider most crucial?Crucial aspects to any successful project are to determine necessity, meeting or exceeding goals within budget, timelines, and customer satisfaction. "What value does this project add upon completion?"What new skills or ideas do you bring to the job that other candidates aren't likely to offer?Open minded and forward thinking, I am a strong component for continuous improvement.
