More about Camden:
Throughout the past several months, Camden has worked closely with Watchdog client, Uber. Uber is opening up customer service centers in cities throughout the country. These service centers create an opportunity for Uber to work directly with new and existing drivers. Watchdog is working with Uber in order to deliver these customer service centers along Uber’s aggressive timeline. Camden travels on a weekly basis to ensure project progress is on-track. Being present on-site as regularly as possible allows Camden to verify that quality work is being done in the field and that the work aligns with the project design.
While traveling, Camden stays on top of all of his projects through consistent communication with the client and all project team members. Because he is working on projects in various time-zones, he makes sure to let his team know that he is available at all times and makes a point to check-in on project vendors throughout the day and night in order to demonstrate his availability. Surely his PMP certification will advance his greater ability to manage projects from a distance.
