After 20 years of IT project management experience within a variety of private and public sector organizations, it has been an honor to work the past two years here at UW-Madison. I have experience managing multiple kinds of programs and projects ranging from large ERP implementations to re-imagined large web applications to process re-engineered business processes and leading strategic planning initiatives. This wide-ranging PM life has led me to understand the power of the team. It has reinforced the critical importance of adding business value to the organization and the need to evaluate expectations and organizational priorities to deliver that value.
