BLUF: I am currently not meeting the initial deadlines for a project. The deadlines are then moved and then I meet them. How do I state that on a resume? Can I say I met the deadline even though it moved?
I am fairly new in the company and am trying to use the defined estimates (i.e. small, 40 hours; medium, 80 hours) we've established for the project; however, in many cases, those estimates are too small. I start working, realize I won't make the deadline and then re-negotiate for a new deadline. Some of that is related to my newness. I have been given positive feedback regarding my deliverables, so the quality of work isn't an issue. Another variable is that the team is trying to apply agile principles in a waterfall environment and that is causing some friction (the company supports the use of agile but hasn't made the complete transition yet). I would like to put an accomplishment on my resume that I completed my deliverables on time, but not sure if I can do that. (and yes, I'm a high C - very detailed - so feel free to tell me I'm over-thinking).
