About the Authors

Rich Maltzman, PMP, has been an engineer since 1978 and a project management supervisor since 1988, including a recent two-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, and the 2006 integration of the program management offices (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:

  • Boston University's Corporate E ducation Center
  • Merrimack College
  • Northern Essex Community College
  • University of Massachusetts-Lowell

Rich has also professionally developed project management professional (PMP) exam prep courseware, including exams and books. He even edited and was "the voice" for a set of eight audio CDs-a major part of a PMP prep course for an international company, for whom he has also facilitated PMP exam study groups. Rich was selected for the modeling team for the fourth edition of the PMBOK Guide published by the Project Management Institute (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, Texas, and the PMO Summit in Coconut Grove, Florida, the subject being the development framework for project managers. Currently, Rich is senior manager, learning and professional advancement, at the Global Program Management Office of a major telecom concern.

Rich's educational background includes a BSEE from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and an MSIE from Purdue University. In addition, Rich has a mini-MBA from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton
