These customers ranged from Coca Cola to The German National Welfare System, from T-Mobile to Wal-Mart, from IBM to The U.S. Mint and customers of all sizes around the world

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) Only so much detail can be conveyed in a resume. This is a more in-depth discussion of what I do and what I've done.

Book  Personal Time Management hasn't been addressed with the same rigor as has Project Management. To fill that gap, I'm at work on "The Straight Line to Accomplishment: Cutting Through the Clutter to Do What's Important." The book's methods can be used in a stand-alone fashion or can seamlessly interface to a classical Project Management regimen.
