A portrait of Robert Jolly

Robert Jolly

Works at The Jol­ly Project Manager.

DPM, Con­sul­tant

For over 15 years, Robert has worked on web projects with clients from non-prof­it, gov­ern­ment, high­er edu­ca­tion, small busi­ness, start-up, and enter­prise orga­ni­za­tions. As Project Man­ag­er and then Client Ser­vices Direc­tor at Hap­py Cog, Robert helped assem­ble and lead projects for Thom­son- Reuters, Amer­i­can Col­lege of Physi­cians, Zap­pos, MICA, George­town Uni­ver­si­ty, Vis­it­Philly, and many others.

Robert focus­es on open, direct com­mu­ni­ca­tion to cre­ative­ly solve com­plex prob­lems and to ensure that an evolv­ing project’s sta­tus is vis­i­ble to all team mem­bers. Com­bin­ing the native tongues of Gantt charts, spread­sheets, ver­sion con­trol, issue track­ing sys­tems, and ani­mat­ed gifs, Robert works hard to keep team mem­bers smil­ing while adher­ing to deliv­er­able time­lines and project bud­gets. Robert has had a long, pas­sion­ate rela­tion­ship with Waf­fle House, and will make it a point to vis­it when­ev­er the oppor­tu­ni­ty presents itself.
