In Project Management, Lee R. Lambert, PMP, PMI Fellow, has established the standards against which others in the field are measured. Throughout a fast-paced 18 year corporate career with Chicago Bridge & Iron, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, General Electric (Nuclear Reactor Division), and Battelle Memorial Institute--where he worked almost exclusively with engineers and scientists--he quickly ascended to senior management positions. He was responsible for developing and implementing ground-breaking, sophisticated Enterprise project management processes for Engineering, Medical Diagnostics, and Research & Development. In 1981, as a result of his pragmatic application of the PM methodologies, he was invited to be an integral part of creating the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification Program. He is a recipient of the PMI’s Distinguished Contribution Award and was a PMNetwork/PM Journal Editorial Review team member for over a decade. He also contributed as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) for the PMI’s Earned Value Management System (EVMS) Practice Standard. Educated as a Mechanical Engineer, he holds a Master’s Certificate in Project Management from George Washington University. Lambert is a frequent lecturer in the prestigious Washington University’s Executive Roundtable series. His most recent professional recognition was being named one of only 70 PMI Fellows. He also received one of the PMI’s highest honors for his groundbreaking applied to learn programs: The Professional Development Provider of the Year 2007. As an author of two books and 32 professional papers, no other project management educator/speaker can contend with his uncanny technical knowledge, material content, and refreshing and entertaining delivery—his hard-hitting but humorous style has mesmerized more than 50,000 students in 23 countries. Lee takes the saying; “Been there, done that, got the T-shirt” to a new level.
