Hi, I’m Greg. Are you looking for a patient, knowledgeable, easygoing, project management expert, and PMP certified professional to help you prepare for either the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) exam or the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam? Are you struggling to figure out what you really need to know in the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) to pass these exams? Do you need a better understanding of project financial analysis, charter development, setting project scope, developing a WBS, estimating methods, scheduling techniques, calculating float, earned value analysis (EVA), team motivational theories, conflict management, qualitative and quantitative risk management, and stakeholder analysis? Or are you trying to apply Agile Scrum methods, write user stories or use cases, and develop usability test cases? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I can help you.

Here’s a quick snapshot of my background. I have an MBA and BA degrees with majors in operations research. I am an independent Management Consultant and Trainer with over 25 years of experience in delivering high-value classroom and virtual workshops in Project Management, Business Analysis and Requirements Definition, and User Acceptance Testing. I have trained over 21,000 I.T. and business professionals in Fortune 500 companies and government agencies throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, and Australia. In addition, I have 18 years of ‘real world’ experience as a Big 8 Management Consultant, VP and Manager of a 160+ person I.T. department, and a Senior Corporate Project Manager. As a dedicated life-long learner, I have continuously expanded my mastery of Project Management related methods to include being a Certified Scrum Master (CSM), a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt (LSSBB), a Certified Computer Professional (CCP), and a certified software tester. My understanding of these additional methods allows me to integrate multiple approaches into a comprehensive and value-added learning experience.

Project Management is my passion. My teaching method is centered, on gaining a clear understanding of the individual learning needs of my Clients and then focusing on exceeding their expectations with tailored instruction and personalized attention. I love the opportunity to blend theory and practical experience together in a lively, fun, engaging, and informative manner. CAPM or PMP exam preparation is challenging and often frustrating work. I can help you develop and apply a targeted approach that will focus your time and effort like a laser beam on what you “really” need to know to successfully pass either exam. In addition, I will share proven tips-and-tricks for taking the exams that will help you pass the first time. I’m proud to say that I have a 100% success rate with participants who sit for the PMP exam.

Project Management is how modern organizations get things done. Successful projects are the engines that deliver innovative products and game-changing services in today’s highly competitive business environment. Project Management certifications are critical resume requirements and proven career enhancers with PMPs making, on average, 15-25% more than their non-certified colleagues. I can help you leverage your current talents and experience to develop the new skills and mindset necessary to successfully win at one of the most demanding and rewarding jobs in the world. I’m easy to reach, always provide quick responses, and can provide the scheduling flexibility you need. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to get started with a session.

Efficient and knowledgeable

I have had 2 PMP lessons with Greg and have made a lot of progress along the way. He brings a dynamic approach to studying, including mini quizzes and recapping prior lessons. I have retained the info taught due to his patience and plan on using him until I pass.
