Introducing the Visual Studio ALM Rangers – Ben Roscorla


This post is part of an ongoing series of Rangers introductions. See Ranger Index (Who is Who?) for more details.

Who you are?Ben

I am a consultant in Microsoft consultant services and have been for 7 ½ years, previous to that I was a consultant at a Microsoft Gold partner. More recently my roles are seeing me take on much more guidance/governance activity than actual hands on delivery.

What makes you “tick”?

In the work place it is definitely the successful delivery of something that improves things for a client/organisation. It’s a real ‘buzz’ to be told by a client that you can be proud of the change you have delivered into their organisation, the other times are always educational J. At home I usually have projects on the go – this weekend I take delivery of a large skip, a concrete breaker and have my mind set on a big change to the front of the house (much to my wifes concern).

Where you live?

Working, Surrey, United Kingdom

Why are you active in the Rangers program?

For how it can assist in my job and or course to contribute learnings back into the program. Although I have an interest from a project delivery perspective it seems my current clients are also keen to learn as well, they want guidance on the sorts of skills they should be looking for in suppliers – as they move away from big SI’s to smaller organisations.

What is the best Rangers project you worked in and why?

As I am just joining I am more looking for a project to contribute to….
