I have been a Project Manager most of my life. I have had the title of Project or Program Manager for the past 13 years. I am passionate about managing projects and developing other project and program managers. I believe that Project Management, when done well, adds value to the organization.
Professional Project Management is part art, part science. A professional Project Manager knows the best practices of Project Management and uses just enough Project Management to get the job done. The professional Project Manager leads and manages their project. They are adept with the “soft skills” and understand the political, social and cultural environments of the organization in which they are working.
Simply put, I get things done. I complete projects and programs and meet business objectives. I do this by combining best practices of Project and Program management, business process analysis and improvement, change management and delivery. I partner with my customers to truly understand their needs and business objectives.
I am a resourceful, innovative and motivational leader with highly developed ability to build consensus, manage teams, solve problems and successfully achieve organizational objectives, while completing projects on time and within budget.
I see this blog as a collaborative, living entity. It is intended to supplement my students understanding of Project Management and reflect the topics and issues that interest them (and me).
I love what I do. I am an enthusiastic evangelist of the value of Project Management to the organization and to our economy. We are faced with doing more with less and Project Management can help us accomplish that.
