I write about what I know, or rather what I think I know. Sometimes readers help me to see things differently, which I like and encourage.I write about what I’ve learned during my 20+ years working in global corporations. Much of what I know I learned from others by: listening, observing, studying, questioning, and doing. Some I’ve learned by making mistakes which is not fun, but has given me a sound foundation for growth.

My successes as a Project and Program Manager have been rewarding and numerous. I’ve led growth, change, profit, and technology initiatives on five continents, successfully directing cross-functional, multicultural personnel in 42 countries. My projects have contributed over $100m in incremental profits for my employers.

I’m also a Business Leader with a broad and unique combination of commercial skills. I have “hands-on” experience managing: change and full-potential programs, customer engagement activities, information systems, finance, marketing, and supply chain management.

I’ve worked globally in the Healthcare, Medical Device, Consumer, and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) sectors.

I’m originally from the east coast of the USA, and was born in New Jersey. I earned a Bachelor of Arts (BA) Degree in Economics, and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) Degree. I completed the Project Management Certification Program at the University of California, Berkeley.  I earned and proudly maintain the Project Management Professional (PMP) designation from the Project Management Institute (PMI).

My wife, Julie and I, reside in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, USA. Julie kindly serves as my proofreader, and editor. But, any grammar or formatting mistakes that you find are my responsibility, and mine alone.

Typically, I post on my blog one or more times per week. I write for fun, to start discussions, and to capture my thoughts and lessons in a place where I can share with others and find back for myself.

    I really liked your post about failure. I like to tell teams is that failure is not the end of the road. What really counts is how you manage your way through it.

      Thank you for reading and responding Connie. Learning from failure is the key – if you do this, then you will most likely not do the same thing again, and the outcome will be different. Thanks again.

    Hi Dale,
    I have read your expressions in:
    7 Things They Don’t Teach You in Project Management School.
    And they are so true !!!
    I came across of this kind of things so many times in my long span project management experience, and can confirm there are many more similar obstacles out there. And you, as a Project Manager, quite often left alone in cold to fight them.
    Regards,
    Mark Khaikin

    Dale,

    Wow … Those seven item’s are on the money ! Yes, the skin has to be thick, and ever so often you have to get fired up too !

    Working in NY will test the system every day ! It seems like every week there is a new rule or new law from city hall . The down side is that it is usually about more funds for someone’s pocket .

    The project can be easy sometimes , but the paper trail and the BS is endless….

    Regards,

    John.
