PM Consulting: Settling into a bit of a routine!

The two relevant blog entries that precede this entry are from July 5, 2017 when I formed Project Management Considerations, LLC and September 15, 2017 when I resigned my position and entered the Project Management Consulting arena.

It has been an interesting journey so far, all on the positive side, and no real downsides so far.  I still had quite a bit of activity on my calendar through my PMI activities and other commitments, but most of that is past me now (I still have a weeklong commitment in April and October for PMI, but those are planned and on the calendar).  I am loving the work I am doing, and my passion has been rekindled.  

My routine has developed into consulting work activities during the day, and in the evening work on PMI activities, building my brand, and networking.  I also balance into both day and evening routines my other endeavor in Renaissance Executive Forums and our Project Management Forum.

Look forward to making more regular updates here (an evening activity), and I have been giving a lot of thought of how to expand this website.  I have lots of ideas, and am definitely energized and excited for this journey, and I look forward to sharing it with you.

PM Forum Meeting, 3/1/18

Behind every project is an idea. Some organizations are trying to improve efficiencies, while others are trying to increase margins or drive innovation. Regardless of the benefits, organizations are using projects to achieve their business objectives. Come learn about our PM Forum to help move your organization from “accidental” project managers to project management as a “core competency.”

This will add real value to business performance.

The Real Journey Starts Today!

Hilly Road

Today is my last day at Safe Fleet (Elkhart Brass and SF Mirrors are were my quality oversight responsibility).  After today, I begin my foray into Project Management Consulting.

I spent 29 years working for major utilities, 25 of those in nuclear power, and the past 5 years in manufacturing.  Over that 34 years,  I have seen the trials and tribulations of both large and small/medium companies!

I am at the stage of my career where mentoring, coaching, and teaching are the results of my experiences. I am excited to be in a situation where I get to utilize the skills that I have learned and developed.

Stay tuned for the next chapters in this journey!!!
