Customer Feedback
I received this note from a client recently on Linkedin. This is why I love what I do – because it helps others be successful! “My new role is mostly project work (leading and facilitating manufacturing improvements) and your book and course material have been vital to my success!”

COVID-19 Update

After a year of uncertainty, my executive education programs with Kent State University and the University of Dayton are back in full swing in online (Zoom) format and in-person. You can view a complete list of programs on the Executive Education page. Despite the challenges of a pandemic, I finished 2021 with a total of 70 days of teaching (52 of those days were on the topic of Project Management). Thanks to the hard work of my university partners, learning continued!

Exciting News!
In 2019, I worked with the University of Dayton’s Center for Leadership to create an eight module online short course called Project Management: Practical Skills and Application. The online course was produced by 2U who is a top-rated provider of online learning. In
2017, 2U acquired GetSmarter who’s expertise is producing online short courses in partnership with higher education clients such as the University of Cambridge, Harvard, MIT, and the University of Dayton. The short course is available through the University of Dayton’s Center for Leadership’s website.
