Randy Englund

Randall Englund's Project Management Consultancy helps discover and create organic systems that optimize results from project-based work: his presentations create an experience about why, what, and how to create an environment for successful projects; his workshops are the catalyst for individuals and teams to assess the environment, adopt and adapt proven practices, and create action plans that optimize project success; consulting engagements discover, design, and apply these practices to achieve more within the organization. Creating a memorable and actionable learning experience is key to every engagement.

Randy's work-as an author, speaker, trainer, partner in advanced project management training and adjunct professor at California universities-draws upon 22 years as a senior project manager at Hewlett-Packard Company and 10 years at GE. With cultural anthropologist Dr. Robert J. Graham he co-authored the books Creating an Environment for Successful Projects (Second Edition) and Creating the Project Office: a Manager's Guide to Leading Organizational Change. With Alfonso Bucero he co-authored Project Sponsorship: Achieving Management Commitment for Project Success. These works come from reflection and action as a program and project manager on complex projects in high tech.

He has an MBA in management and BSEE, is a certified New Product Development Professional (NPDP), and a Certified Business Manager (CBM). He regularly speaks and presents workshops around the world for the Project Management Institute and other organizations. Find him on the web at www.englundpmc.com. A session with Randy Englund is noteworthy for the images and sounds invoked through multimedia.
