I ___ a (software) project from concept to implementation.

"___" here refers to being solely responsible for all phases of the SDLC process for this project.

    Could you tell us why words such as "led" and "managed" don't work for this? Jun 7, 2020 at 8:03

    If you didn't lead then maybe you should edit your question so that it doesn't ask about leading.

    Resumes usually say designed and executed the project. Mentioning the one-person aspect says it was a small project. Jun 7, 2020 at 12:49

    Similar to the comment that asks why led and managed are not acceptable, why is I was solely responsible for a (software) project, which is already used in the question itself, not acceptable? I can't imagine any single word being more idiomatic or comprehensive than that phrase. Jun 7, 2020 at 13:57

    @HotLicks I don't think so, as its not technical enough, not addressing a coding/scripting issue. Jun 7, 2020 at 16:42

How about spearheaded? From M-W:

spearhead: to serve as leader or leading element of

Your example:

I spearheaded a (software) project from concept to implementation.

Spearhead is commonly used in management circles, as is champion, although I can't find a definition of the latter consistent with my experience.

  • Thank you. I think this portrays what I want to convey clearly.

  • Spearhead implies the presence of spear, which is why the definition you've quoted is about being a leader, so I don't think it's the right word to describe a case where an entire project was completed by a single person.

How about self-executed or self-managed? Alternatively, individually executed or individually managed.

You might also consider throwing in the word "solo", as in

I self-executed a solo (software) project from concept to implementation.

or

I self-managed a solo (software) project from concept to implementation.

or

I individually executed a solo (software) project from concept to implementation.

or

I individually managed a solo (software) project from concept to implementation.

How about oversaw or oversee? This would describe your role in either a solo or group project.

I was tasked to oversee (software) project from concept to implementation.

I oversaw (software) project from concept to implementation.

    To me, "oversee" heavily implies the management role as opposed to the individual contributor role.

I piloted a (software) project from concept to implementation.

  • I think it's a good suggestion, but consistent with the expectations for answers on this site, could you provide a definition from a dictionary and a couple of examples of sentences where the verb pilot is used in this way? You may want to visit the site's Help Center to read about good ELU answers. Jun 7, 2020 at 15:35
  • Thank you for acknowledging my suggestion. An example sentence from a dictionary would be: “the lead rider piloted the rest of the team“ from here: merriam-webster.com/thesaurus/piloted

The word for transforming a software project is “refactoring”, except that makes little sense with your examples. Maybe you want to change the title of the question.
