Hailing from the cold, frozen tundra of Minneapolis, MN, I rely on the combined heat of my two cats and several computers to stay warm through the long dark winters. I am the Project Center Manager at Magenic Technologies, responsible for project management, project methodologies, and delivery quality across our client engagements. I see successful project management, especially for software projects, as a large Rube Goldberg machine with many different parts all affecting each other, but coming together for a positive result. I have a passion for figuring out those linkages and trying to improve them through measurement and innovation.
You might notice that just as many of my blog entries are focused on Team Foundation Server as on project management in general. I see TFS as one of the best innovations for the management and metric-izing software projects. This means we have the ability to control and apply standard DMAIC methods to agile processes.
I am a frequent contributor to the Microsoft Forums and was a contributing author to the Syngress Windows Server Enterprise Administrator Certification book (Chapters 2, 7, & 10)
