Steve VanArsdale

Enterprise Project Manager - PPM System Architect, PMO Mentor, and CISA auditor.
"I believe that it is possible to manage project investments in a way that enriches ALL participants... including Team Members. We can make Sponsors, Stakeholders, and Team Members productive by blending PMBoK methods and CoBIT practices into PPM techniques that reduce Cost, save Time, and control Scope, while binding projects and teams on a track to unqualified successes. My personal commitment is to inspire project organizations to these personal and organizationally-rewarding Best Practices."

CSM - PMP - CISA - PMI-ACP - Top 10% of all personal profiles requested from Linked In in 2012, and 1% of all PMP also awarded the PMI-ACP.
