Project management methodologies work “on paper” and “in theory,” unfortunately, they generally fail once people are added to the mix. The focus on the psychology, art, and science of gathering business requirements is the major contributor to project success where success is defined as being on time, within scope, and at or below budget.

"Anthony Reed hasn’t stopped running since. He ran while earning his MBA, master’s of accounting, and CPA certification.
