About me

Rich Maltzman, PMP®, has been an engineer since 1978 and a Project Management supervisor since 1988, including a recent 2-year assignment in The Netherlands in which he built a team of PMs overseeing deployments of telecom networks in Europe and the Middle East. His project work has been diverse, including projects such as the successful deployment of the entire video and telecom infrastructure for the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, to the 2006 integration of the PMOs of two large merging corporations. As a second, but intertwined career, Rich has also focused on consulting and teaching, having developed curricula and/or taught at local and national colleges including Boston University and the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School.

Rich has also professionally developed PMP®-exam prep courseware, including exams and books. Rich was selected for the Modeling Team for the 4th Edition PMBOK® Guide to be published by PMI® in 2008, and contributed to the chapters on Quality and Risk.

Recently, Rich presented at two international conferences – the PMO Symposium in San Antonio, TX, and the PMO Summit in Coconut Grove, FL, the subject being the development framework for Project Managers.

Currently, Rich is Leader, Learning & Professional Advancement, at a major telecom concern.
