I am the father of a hockey goalie. I am also an entreprenuer, a software developer and a business process consultant.

Many of the core ideas around the PCT process come directly from my work providing management consulting to companies like Federal Express, The United Way, The Hartford, and other large, well-known local companies.

These companies are now using a process very similiar to the PCT process to manage complex projects, coordinate the efforts of multiple teams, and align efforts with intended results. These companies are successfully using an empirical, iterative method called 'Scrum'.

Leaders at companies like Microsoft, Yahoo, and Google are using Scrum to increase productivity, encourage teamwork, and manage complexity. You can examine more detail about this by checking out the links on the Resources page. Scrum is a proven and flexible framework for managing projects, and overall project complexity.

Yahoo specifically is using Scrum to run entire divisions of the business...not just software projects. Many venture capital companies are now adopting Scrum as the framework for organizing their complex work.

The entire PCT Process is inspired by Scrum. Scrum is a set of clear roles, tasks, and boundaries combined with an iterative, adaptive framework for executing on teamwork. The simple Scrum process is transforming project management worldwide. Scrum teams experience a 'hyperproductive state' that is from 4 to 10 times more productive than teams using other approaches.

Specific techniques such as Scrum are part of what are known generally as Agile methods.

I am a Certified ScrumMaster who is active in the Agile and Scrum business communities. I am a past invited speaker at Agile2007 and Agile2008 and I am the Stage Producer responsible for organizing and leading the Learning and Education track of Agile2009.

I am an invited keynote speaker at professional organizations like the Project Management Institute. You can examine session abstracts of my Project Management Institute keynotes here, here, and here.

You can examine my Agile2007 session abstract "Agile and Entrepreneurial Thinking Patterns" here. Here is a link to my related Agile training grades from Agile2007.
