Choosing the Right Project Management Methodology

Project Management Methodology selection can be a chore, and take a significant effort, or may be automatically selected as a matter of course for and by your organization.  Together we will explore the various types of methodologies in this highly interactive session, and discuss the various benefits, as well as look at PMI-based data on what actually occurs in industry.  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll accidentally learn while enjoying a breakfast treat.

Pat Branch, PMP

          A veteran operations and technical leader, Pat has worked in a variety of industries, including aerospace, software, consumer electronics, and automotive.  His professional aerospace credentials include designing and building custom ground support equipment utilized in building wide-body Boeing jets, such as the tallest piece of equipment on the flightline at Paine field, the 747-8 Windshield Stand.  The one consistent skill he has applied across these fields has been program and project management, including the first ever successful installation and certification of a Super-First Class Seat system for the Boeing 787-9…a monumental two year plus effort!  Other key positions he has held include Director of Manufacturing, Director of Operations (antennas, kayaks), Director of Product Development (antennas), and various Program Management roles, most recently focused on software development.  Mr. Branch is a certified Project Management Professional, completed a degree in Production and Operations Management from Cal Poly, Pomona, and an MBA from the University of Utah.  Despite achieving senior status as a computer engineering student, even passing the Engineer-In-Training and unable to shake away from his technical past, he continues to gravitate toward working with smart people to help solve technical challenges.  To this day, he refuses to complete that EE degree.
