My name is Jeb Riordan and I've been a project manager for, well, too long.

Primarily in the telecommunications sector I have managed multi-million dollar projects in more than ten different countries, including, the UK, Australia, Thailand, Indonesia, Pakistan, Cambodia and the Caribbean.

I am a past member of the UK based Association for Project Management (APM) and the USA based Project Management Institute (PMI).

Although no longer a member of any professional institution I have maintained my PMI Project Management Professional Certification (PMP) status because it includes an element of continuing professional development (and it looks good on my resume!)

Oh, I also gained the Advanced Project Management Certificate from the International Institute for Learning. That was a long haul; simulating the NASA moon landing project.

Over the years, I have observed many projects failing because the project manager is overwhelmed with the need to adopt the latest fad in managing projects and managing people; losing sight of the real project objectives - On time, below budget and delighted stakeholders.

My mission is to simplify the complexity of modern project management by encouraging project managers, team members and stakeholders to focus on well proven, repeatable, solid practical project management processes making even the most complex of projects easy to monitor, control and complete successfully.
