Leadership in Project Performance

Risk, stakeholders, data, truth, and process — this is my world, and the language of projects. I work directly with medium to large companies that exhibit genuine commitment to improving their project organization, rate of project success, and bottom line.

I have published two books. The first, Project Performance Review, co-authored with Anthony Mills, is a revolutionary and flexible approach to auditing. The second, Project Cost Recording and Reporting, delves into the challenges of timely, appropriate, and transparent project reporting. I have also written numerous articles and research papers for both scholarly and general audiences; my interests are broad and deep. I’ve lectured around the world at colleges, universities, conferences, corporations, and other settings on a wide range of topics pertaining to projects, business, and the built environment.

In previous incarnations, I swam very long distances, performed and recorded music, painstakingly recreated recipes, and had my own recurring bit on Lifetime Television. I’m a philomath TCK who speaks truth to power and travels a lot.
