Episode 074: A PM Conversation with Shawn Futterer, PMP
Back in Episode 070 we tried something new. Instead of an in-depth interview on a particular topic, our host Cornelius Fichtner invited Dina Henry-Scott to a Project Management Conversation. The feedback on that particular episode was so encouraging, that we decided to do more conversations just like it. We will of course continue to have our in-depth feature interviews but going forward you can expect many more Project Management Conversations.
Today's Project Management Conversation is with Shawn Futterer who is a certified project management professional with a broad range of experience. He started his career in 1992 managing quality control projects for a small manufacturing company and is currently working in a PMO for a Fortune 50 telecommunications company where he supervises project managers for the North region. Over the course of his career, Shawn has managed projects of all shapes and sizes with budgets of up to $100M. Shawn has a keen interest in the methodologies, strategy, planning and operations. He has over fifteen years of hands-on project management experience and has led, consulted on or contributed to: process development efforts, various methodologies and multiple training programs. Shawn attributes a project managers success to their ability to provide a strategic view and a demonstrated ability to interact and communicate effectively with all levels of an organization.
As usual we also have our helpful resources and we give away a license to the project management methodology of our sponsor www.mpmm.com. The giveaway ends on August 27, 2007. Listen to this episode to learn how to participate.
