Recommendation from JEM Advisors

“Over the course of a year, JEM Advisors has had the pleasure of working with Austin Mattson when supporting one of our mutual clients. Austin had overall responsibility to develop and implement an Operational Readiness process, and integrate it into the company’s project management process. Austin was identified as the project lead and was our ‘point of contact’ to assist in this effort for the duration of our engagement with this program. Austin had already developed significant quality work process documentation, but he was very receptive to incorporate our suggestions for modifications to develop the highest quality product in the best interest of the client. This amicable relationship led to the documents being approved and integrated into the client’s project management process within the prescribed timeline. Austin demonstrated his quality leadership and project management skills when leading the project Operational Readiness Reviews which were conducted along the project lifecycle at designated review control points.

The implementation of the Operational Readiness process (including reviews) was severely impacted by the COVID – 19 pandemic. It was during this period that Austin led a seamless transition to a virtual working climate, including the application of online tools and technologies. This change ensured the process implementation remained on schedule.

We found Austin to be extremely well versed in project management which proved to be instrumental when executing this Operations Readiness program. Austin’s professionalism is clearly evident, continuously focused on the client’s needs, as well as developing good working relationships. He communicates well with the Project Professionals and Operations Leaders managing the projects under review, and he positively conveys the intent of such reviews as a means of continuous improvement. He has a very meticulous way of delivery which was key to the success of this project.

Austin’s expertise would be an asset to any organization looking to improve Project Management or Operational Readiness performance. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Austin, and we look forward to future opportunities.”
