I am a tenured college professor, author, consultant, and active PMI member, having served on the local and national levels. My Information Technology Project Management, now in its sixth edition, sold over 200,000 copies and was translated into Chinese,Japanese, Russian, and Czech. The seventh edition will be out in November 2012. I also have another book, An Introduction to Project Management, now in its fourth edition, published in July 2012. My first full-time job was as a project manager in the Air Force in the early eighties. Before entering academia in 1991, I also worked on various projects at Boeing and Clark Oil. I enjoy teaching project management and other courses at Augsburg College, writing books and articles, consulting, and taking time to enjoy life.
