Shannon Smith

Project Manager

As MapData Services’ lead project manager, Shannon oversees the end-to-end software development lifecycle, working closely with our clients to advance projects from initial scoping stages through to testing and evaluation.

Shannon’s approach to project management is much more than plans and deadlines. Through a constant cycle of listening, consulting, custom-designing and delivering, Shannon ensures business objectives are met and clients feel supported.

Shannon holds a Bachelor of Business, and is a Certified ScrumMaster. He has successfully implemented the ‘Scrum’* project management framework across MapData Services’ software development team.

*Scrum is an agile framework for completing complex projects, not a rugby tactic.
