Early exposure across a variety of functional disciplines allowed Ken to notice the interconnections. Several years in the Toyota engineering team helped him understand the importance of communication and information flow through a global company.  That experience motivated him to pursue Project Management and an environment that demanded stewardship of those critical, cross functional, cross cultural connections. After 20 years of practice, Ken has proven his excellence with millions of dollars in Process improvements, enterprise wide PM Systems development, and Strategic / Tactical Leadership that enabled rapid situational assessment, team building, and problem solving.  He strives to create a foundation of systemized, intuitive, order so that people have the best possible processes and decision-making information for achieving their goals.

 After managing a $30M product development program across 3 countries, Ken was asked by the CEO to restructure the company’s global, cradle-to-grave Program Management process.  In addition to product development projects, Ken has experience in construction and has leveraged his process / information flow insight as a base for SAP and Lifecycle Management software implementations.

Credentialed as a PMP in 2001, Ken is also an Engineer, Six Sigma Black Belt, and Lean practitioner.

Join Us for the Annual Meeting and Lisa Ingall  - Talkin' About My Generation

Chapter meeting begins at 6:30PM at Go to Where Meetings Matter  4735 Washtenaw Ave, Ann Arbor, MI 48108

Doors open at 6:00PM for networking and hors d'oeuvres.

 
 
 
Talkin' About My Generation
 
Greatest Generation, Boomers, Xers, Millennials, and now...what do we call them? iGen? GenNext? Our grandkids? ? 
Today's workplace can include an unprecedented five generations, each one with different experiences, strengths, priorities and attitudes. While each of your team members is most definitely an individual, there are some generalities that can be used to predict how people of each generation may prefer to communicate, work, and live. 
How do you make sure your project doesn't fall into the generation gap that these differences can create? How can you bridge that gap?
You TALK to each other!
In this interactive experience, we'll investigate the assumptions each of us carries with us regarding other generations, and how that affects us in the workplace. Participants will work together to better understand their own generational tendencies and how to more effectively work and communicate with those of different generations. And through it all, we'll have fun!
