Running to Leadership

 

On Wednesday, October 24, 31 project managers attended the hands-on ‘Running to Leadership’ workshop, hosted by our chapter, at the Puritan Backroom.  Over his career, the speaker, Anthony Reed (PMP, CPA), has managed many high-profile projects to successful conclusion. He is also an accomplished marathoner, completing over 100 such events. He is in exclusive company, being one of less than 300 individuals, to complete marathons in all 7 continents. Mr. Reed approaches each of his running events as a project, especially in the areas of planning, executing, and risk mitigation. Throughout the workshop, he compared his marathon experiences to that of the projects he’s managed and to Project Management in general. As indicated in his title, Mr. Reed holds a CPA. This certification was achieved after becoming a Project Manager. In his role as a PM, he encountered frustrations with the ‘bean counters’, so he decided to earn the accounting certification in order to think in those terms when managing projects.
